Guess Who is Running to Replace Bill de Blasio as NYC Mayor
Thankfully, Bill de Blasio’s time is running out. He is unable to run for another term as Mayor of New York. Let’s all praise God for that!
Bill de Blasio has run New York City into the ground. It is worse now than what it ever was under Michael Bloomberg, and remember that Bloomberg is the guy who was banning straws and large sodas.
Now, crime is running the streets of New York City once again and it is definitely not a safe place to visit.
Crime has skyrocketed and shootings are up 200%.
But lo and behold, someone you know is running to fill that position and it’s someone that we’re all familiar with.
Democratic Presidential candidate, Andrew Yang is running to replace de Blasio in this upcoming election. He officially kicked off his campaign on Thursday and is still pushing for universal basic income.
His universal basic income proved popular among Democrats, and it caught on with other candidates in the field — reemerging amid questions of how to stimulate the economy in the COVID-era.
He has called for it again in NYC, calling it “the largest basic income program in the history of the country.”
Yang’s policy for New York City would begin by giving those classed as living in “extreme poverty” about $2,000 a year.
“This program can then be grown over time as it receives more funding from public and philanthropic organizations, with the vision of eventually ending poverty in New York City altogether,” he says on his campaign website.
This is a perfect way of finishing off New York City so that it is never again the pinnacle of the business world ever again. A universal basic income plan of $2,000 per year, even though that’s a small amount compared to his $1,000 per month plan when he was running for president, is going to bankrupt the city, if it’s not there already.
