The following article, Flashback: Bill De Blasio’s Wife Lost Nearly $1 Billion Taxpayer Dollars In Health ‘Scheme’, was first published on Flag And Cross.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s (D) wife backed a “mental health scheme” that has now cost taxpayers $850 million. Good thing it wasn’t an even $1 billion, huh?
And this is a man who wanted to be president?
Fox News host Laura Ingraham weighed-in:

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. Yes, all.
Legals. Non-legals. Doesn’t matter.
Everyone gets their health care for “free.”
Because of radicals like de Blasio, America is well on her way to becoming Canada and, gulp, Europe.
De Blasio noted, “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.
