March 6, 2013 in Economics
In a recent report by the Coalition for the Homeless, New York City’s homeless population has grown by 61% since Mayor Michael Bloomberg, the world’s 13th richest person, took office.
This news comes from the Coalition of the Homeless‘ annual report, “State of the Homeless”, and is highlighted in an article, “Homeless population grew 61% since Bloomberg took office: Report” published by AMNY on March 5th, 2013 “
The tyrannical Mayor denies that there are people living on the street, reported by the Wall Street Journal in their article “Mayor Draws Fire With Remark on Homelessness” published on February 19th, 2013.
“”The public does not want to—and should not have to—support somebody if they have alternatives,” Mr. Bloomberg said Tuesday. “We want to make sure that our moneys are available to those who really don’t have any alternatives. And, so, that’s all we’re trying to do—nobody’s sleeping on the streets.”
Bill de Blasio, a Democratic public advocate, called the mayor “either blind or willfully ignorant.”
“New Yorkers are sleeping on the street, in no small part because of his failed policies,” he stated.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg is now the 13th richest person in the world, up from his 20th place position last year. This is reported by Politicker in their article, “Bloomberg Doesn’t Like the Forbes Billionaires List”, as well as other sources that are reporting the new 2013 Forbe’s billionaires list, “The World’s Billionaires.”
