But you guys get all the good ones.
First you had a mayor (and party affiliation never seems to matter) who tried to move his mistress into Gracie Mansion. While his wife was still there! Then there was the always borderline creepy Mike Bloomberg, who, when he wasn’t springing b*ners at press conferences with his hottie sign-language interpreter, made it his life’s mission to ban fun. (Yes, he’s still out there.)
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has drawn national attention with his progressive agenda, a key piece of which is to push for higher taxes on the rich to pay for early education and after-school programs.
“Asking those at the top to help our kids get on the right path and stay there. That’s our mission. And on that, we will not wait. We will do it now,” de Blasio said in his inaugural address on New Year’s Day.
Which wouldn’t be so outrageous, if not for this:
Getting support for his proposed education programs may prove easier than getting the nod on his plan to pay for them. Any city tax increase must pass muster with New York State leaders. And the governor, Andrew Cuomo, just offered a $2 billion tax relief package.
Ah, progressivism. It all sounds and feels so good in the sweltering heat of the campaign.
Let’s see, what else can Mayor Bill do that sounds progressive and won’t work? I’ve got it! Change stop-and-frisk to stop-and-feel-up.
Get ready for a fun four years, New York.
