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. 9 months ago
Well said CleanUpJamaicaQueens -- you hit all the right points about this issue!! This is why I did NOT vote for de Blasio -- this is only the beginning.10 months ago

So how exactly will the supermarket figure out how many bags are used? The items are bagged AFTER payment is made in most stores. How will the stores do that? It would make lines even longer! And in some stores when the cashier bags the groceries for the customer, they use huge amount of bags, double bagging everything, often putting just one item in a bag.
My assumption is that the rocket scientists who are writing and supporting this bill have never shopped for one grocery in their entire lives! As always, the council is quick to shove ridiculous and costly laws down our throats. Aug 22, 2013
