After voting for left-wing Democrats like Bill de Blasio, rich liberal New Yorkers are fleeing in droves. Even Governor Cuomo has admitted it’s a problem, and they won’t fix it by scaring people away.
The way the liberal government handled the pandemic and riots seems to have driven many residents to move away.
Things only appear to get worse, as de Blasio refuses to turn things around.
In fact, it appears he wants to make things much worse—embracing even more socialism:
“Mayor de Blasio made a public plea Friday for taxing the rich and redistributing their money even as the Big Apple reels from a coronavirus-induced budget crisis that’s already caused well-heeled New Yorkers to head for the hills.
“Help me tax the wealthy. Help me redistribute wealth. Help me build affordable housing in white communities if you want desegregation,” de Blasio said on WNYC’s “The Brian Lehrer” show after a caller asked about integrating public schools.
Even though his leadership is a train wreck, de Blasio is pushing some of the most radical ideas since Bernie Sanders.
