De Blasio: NYC needs billions in federal aid or city economy ’won’t come back’

Mayor Bill de Blasio has claimed that NYC requires at least $7.5B in federal aid to get back on track after being crippled by the pandemic. ’When I told you about that $7.5B, that’s revenue that’s gone that pays for cops, teachers, sanitation workers,’ de Blasio said. ’I’m probably going to see more and more revenue gone because our economy won’t come back without a stimulus,’ he said.

It's almost like the treatment for the problem could be worse than the disease? Who said that I wonder?

This is going to sound ridiculously callous, but isn’t this the opportune time to test our economy? Instead of injecting artificial bailouts to all industries, let the consumer voice determine which companies stay afloat. I recognize that could be counter-intuitive, but if our unemployment figures are already tanking and the government is giving unprecedented support to individuals... might as well test the machine for squeaks while we’re at it.

“It’s a dangerous situation to ever go in the water if there are no lifeguards present,” he [de blubberhead] added. For fucks sake, could that dimwitted fucker treat adults like little children a little more? There are plenty of reasons to hate nannystate control freaks like deblasio, even more to hate moronic and hypocritical ones like him as well... but thenpure condescension from someonenwith the IQ and common sense of a dead subway rat... just fuck that fat moron. Let him go to the gym while he orders everyone else to stay in home, let him amd his wifey go on long drives and hikes while having his cops harrass and fine citizens for doing the exact samenthing... fat fuck needs the excersize, it might remove some of that blubber whoch replaced his already under developed brain.
