New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s wife backed a “mental health scheme” that has now cost taxpayers $850 million.
Good thing it wasn’t an even $1 billion, huh?

From Daily Mail:
Bill de Blasio’s wife Chirlane McCray cannot explain where $850million given to the mental health program she champions has gone, according to reports.
In the three years it has been running, organizers at ThriveNYC have largely failed to keep records of the initiative’s achievements – and data that has been collected shows it lagging well behind targets.
Despite that, the program has been granted an even bigger budget going forward and is now on track to spend $1billion over five years.
Health care for all has come to New York City.
Everyone gets their health care for “free.”
Because of radicals like Mayor Bill de Blasio, America is well on her way to becoming Canada and, gulp, Europe.
From Daily Wire:
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio declared Tuesday that the city will unveil a brand new “universal” health care program, footing the bill for all uninsured New York City residents, “regardless of their ability to pay or their immigration status.”
ABC News reports that de Blasio’s new plan, NYC Care, isn’t exactly a “universal health care” plan, but rather a “guarantee” that the city will pay for preventative medical care for an estimated 600,000 who do not have insurance, but live within the boundaries of New York City.
De Blasio: “Health care is a right, not a privilege reserved for those who can afford it. While the federal government works to gut health care for millions of Americans, New York City is leading the way by guaranteeing that every New Yorker has access to quality, comprehensive access to care, regardless of immigration status or their ability to pay.”
By the time liberals realize health care is not a right it will be too late.
President Bill de Blasio. Could you imagine?
The stuff of nightmares, huh?
The uber-far left New York City mayor won’t rule out a run in 2020.
Bill: “I never rule things out, because you never know what life brings.”
“There are still a lot of moderate voices in the party that did not learn the lessons of 2016, that are not listening to what people need in this country. So I want to push this whole party and I want to inform this debate in this country about the fact that we could go a lot farther, we could be a lot bolder than what we’re doing now.”
