Look, if I had my druthers, the city government would determine every single plot of land, how development would proceed. And there would be very stringent requirements around income levels and rents. That’s a world I’d love to see, and I think what we have, in this city at least, are people who would love to have the New Deal back, on one level. They’d love to have a very, very powerful government, including a federal government, involved in directly addressing their day-to-day reality. Bill de Blasio New York Magazine 9-4-17
Is this the America you envision, a place where a large government takes care of your day-to-day needs?
While that government is busy taking care of us, I wonder who will be taking care of it?
