Bill de Blasio

If people were worried that Obama is a Socialist, this New York Times report on the Democratic candidate is revealing.

This just helps him.

Oh my god he even had an Afro. We are doomed!

I agree R1. It seems as if Mr. Bloomberg might have made a call. Then we have this wretched Matthew Shepard book that the Right-Less are trying to push. Just awful!

If this were a national election, with voters in the Midwest and South terrified of socialists and communists taking away their guns, this kind of story might have traction.

It's fucking New York City. No one gives a shit - you think the voters in Brooklyn, the Bronx, and most of Manhattan (besides the UES and UWS) are scared by "socialism"? Hell, most people voted for him BECAUSE he gave off the liberal credentials of a community activist.

I met a lady on the train who said his wife is a lesbian, she claimed she read it in the NYT.

Yup, R5, and his daughter was conceived through immaculate conception.

The New York Times is always out to get the wrong person. First, they attacked Chris Quinn, and her noisy bossiness, and you know how that turned out... Good news for Bill!

Since Warren Wilhelm wasn't invited to the Steuben Day Parade, will he be on a float at the Columbus Day event?

I'm ok with liberal...but moving down to nicaragua to become a sandinista...abit much, no? Not big on electing Mayor Che Guevara.

I have a feeling if this guy is elected he will be a disaster for NYC. The last thing we need is a bleeding heart liberal to run things. Crime will go through the roof. He seems like the type to give a pat on the back to a mugger.

Vote for Bill "CRIME" deBlasio! Woo hoo!

He and the misses went to Cuba illegally to see how Castro runs the country. That's where Bill learned to promise everything to everybody without knowing how it would be paid for.

I vaguely knew him in college. He's a very nice, earnest guy. Unfortunately, nice, earnest guys do not make good NYC mayors. (See Dinkins).

I like him though but I'm sad to say that to be a good NYC mayor you have to be a bit of an SOB.

I want to move to NYC just to vote for Bill de Blasio.

Fuck you and your "bleeding heart" crap. Sixties White Supremacist bullshit.

But Lhota has the drive and personality of a piece of flounder, as well as an unfortunate lisp. What are we gonna do? It's a pretty wan choice for us New Yorkers.

Finally, the NY Times is able to report that the paper ballots have at long last all been by the clown car known as the NYC Board of Elections. And it didn't change the percentage more than a mil. What they haven't told us, however, is just how many paper ballots were counted and why it took almost a month to count them and report the tally. The paper of record continues its southward slump on real news... and continues to shill the documentary for their now defeated endorsement, Ms. Christine Quinn.

De Blasio Quietly Drops Bloomberg Policy Forcing Sponsors Of Immigrants To Pick Up Welfare Tabs

Records show that in February New York Mayor Bill de Blasio quietly gave the axe to a policy put in place by former mayor Michael Bloomberg that required the sponsors of immigrants to pick up their welfare tabs.

The payback policy stems from a 1997 federal law, which requires sponsors of immigrants to sign a contract saying they are financially responsible if the people they sponsored accept some public benefits.The feds didn’t enforce the law, and no city adopted the policy until New York took it up in 2012 under Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Bloomberg resurrected this law that contractually required sponsors of immigrants to repay public benefits received by immigrants they vouched for. However, the city gave low-income sponsors, victims of domestic abuse, asylum seekers and refugees a pass, along with recipients of food stamps and Medicaid.

Along with the change in policy, de Blasio is also refunding upwards of $1M to some 250 sponsors who were forced to pay the abs of immigrants who found their way into the welfare system. Most of the refunds are going to sponsors who are relatives of the immigrants they sponsored, officials said.

Deputy Mayor for Health and Human Services Lilliam Barrios-Paoli said the de Blasio administration ended the paybacks because it was “wrong.” “These people are our neighbors,” Barrios-Paoli said. “They pay taxes. And they deserve better.”

R19: That change of policy is totally fucked up.

The Sandinistas were the good guys, r10. Remember the Iran-Contra crimes of Reagan et al.?

His wife used to be a lesbian. Or at least that's what she used to call herself when she was having relationships with women

De Blasio & Co is what you wind up with when only 18% of the registered electorate comes out to vote for NYC's mayoral contest.

At heart, he's a communist.

by Anonymousreply 2705/16/2014

What's fucked up is that the Feds ... you know, the ones with jurisdiction over immigration and Human Services ... aren't enforcing it.

by Anonymousreply 2805/16/2014

De BLasio cares about all those in need, and that includes immigrants!

by Anonymousreply 2905/16/2014

Geez..the election of deBlasio reminds us to get the hell out and vote or you will be left with this clown.

What a disaster.
