The Wuhan Virus bill under discussion in DC (as I write Thursday) doesn’t have any bailout money for States and municipalities. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio isn’t happy about that.
What do we see right now in Washington? Endless discussion that now is leaving out all state and local aid, that means that city government, state government will not be able to get back on our feet and serve our people—it just doesn’t make any sense[.]
What do I see right now in New York City Hall? Endless tin cup rattling that continues to demand other people’s money.
To paraphrase (not very loosely) a man far more intelligent than any of us ordinary Americans,
…there’s plenty of money in [City Hall], it’s just in the wrong hands. Democrats have to fix that[.]
Indeed. De Blasio and his Progressive-Democrat-dominated city council (46 Progressive-Democrat councilmen out of 51 seats) have only to reallocate their spending priorities and their actual spending.
That they won’t—it just doesn’t make any sense.
