NY Mayor Says Wealth Is ‘in the Wrong Hands,’ Pledges to Redistribute It
Ol’ Bill de Blasio is at it again, making them crazy blue waves. This time, he used his sixth State of the city address to say some really wild things…
via NY Times: The mayor, in his address, continued to aim at a bigger target: the economic agenda of Republicans, from President Ronald Reagan to President Trump, that he said had dominated the nation’s politics.
“This country has spent decades taking from working people and giving to the 1 percent,” he said. “This city has spent the last five years doing it the other way around. We give back to working people the prosperity they have earned.”
The speech concluded: “Those goals are not utopian or unreachable. They are achievable.”
Mr. de Blasio gave the speech at 11 a.m., rather than in the evening as he has done for the past three years. And he used a teleprompter, departing from his recent practice of allowing himself more freedom to improvise by relying only on bullet points for speeches that often ran long.
The speech included the usual heralding of city workers who did exceptional work in the past year. The mayor also added a few moments of flair, using video to illustrate some points — like a silent scroll of nations that already require paid vacation — and signing an executive order on stage to create a new office for tenant protection that he said would step up enforcement against landlords.
As he signed the order, Mr. de Blasio punctuated the moment by holding the document aloft to the applauding room. “Who says government can’t act fast?” he said.
