NYC Democrat Bill de Blasio Vows to Wrest Wealth from ‘Wrong Hands’ and Redistribute

NYC Democrat Bill de Blasio Vows to Wrest Wealth from ‘Wrong Hands’ and Redistribute, by Joshua Caplan.

The second-term mayor said millions of Americans are “boxed into lives that just aren’t working” because of Republican policies like tax breaks for the wealthy and corporations. “Brothers and sisters, there’s plenty of money in the world,” de Blasio said. “Plenty of money in this city. It’s just in the wrong hands. You deserve a city that gives you the share of prosperity that you’ve earned.” …

Under the proposal, NYC Care will guarantee health care for approval 600,000 people without health insurance in New York, regardless of their ability to pay or immigration status. …

“Health care isn’t just a right in theory, it must be a right in practice. And we’re doing that here in this city,” the progressive politician told host Willie Geist.

So blows the wind, powered by competitive virtue-signaling, the social-media-induced echo chamber, and media-driven anti-Trump overconfidence on the left. Sooner or later the Democrats will be in a position to turn their rhetoric into policy, and the left around the world will copy it.
