    Well said, reg131!!! The comparison to Detroit is spot on. de Blasio has always intended to craft his own version of "tale of two cities" -- those who will get government handouts and those who can afford to sustain the bloated city. Then there's the middle class who will have to leave in droves because our city is unaffordable.

    I don't think Katz (D) and de Blasio (D/Soc/Comm) have gone far enough, nor Dromm (D) or Koslowitz (D). Why not 100% total taxation...we're almost there already? Their affiliation says it all - the Democrats are intent on driving out the American working middle class and creating a new version of "Detroit." State Comptroller Di Napoli (D) is optimistic. Of course, why not? More money for government, more squeezing the poor working class, more, more and more. And the one lone holdout Eric Ulrich (R) is the voice of reason. These folks are no better than the shunned upon, societal outcast drug addict. Make no mistake, these political whores are nothing more than greed addicts who can never get enough. They need a financial "fix" every week, every month, every year and without every being satisfied. They remind me of Audrey II from Little Shop of Horrors.....the more you feed them the larger and greedier they get, until they become unmanageable and heinous. This accurately describes our government from the bottom up or the top down, whichever way you wish to view it. It will surely implode because it cannot sustain itself.
