Bolting De Blasio: The Exodus Begins || by Pamela Geller


And so it begins: De Blasio’s war on the producers has triggered a mass exodus form the city. 5,000 very wealthy families paid 30 percent of the city’s income tax. Losing even a few of them means significantly less money for filling potholes and hiring cops. That’s who this clown is attacking?

De Blasio is making good on his campaign platform — destroying the producer and greasing the grubby hooves of the moochers and the looters. Revenge of the loser.

But it’s not just the wealthy. Yesterday, I posted on the latest attack by Red Bill, closing the best-performing charter schools in the city as payback to the teacher’s union. Targeting the poor for his sleazy backroom deals.

Props to Governor Andrew Cuomo and Senate Republican leader Dean Skelos, who today came to the rescue of these poor families by promising to step in to pay the rent of city charter schools denied free space under a crackdown by Mayor De Blasio, according to two sources.

“De Blasio’s anti-rich policies are driving wealthy people out of NYC,” NY Post, March 4, 2014

Money — it’s the root of all evil. Behind every great fortune lies a great crime. Or at least an unfair advantage.

That’s the gist of the liberals’ creed and justification for their war on wealth. The other half of their view holds that the poor are innocent victims of life’s rigged game.

Their narrative of evil winners and noble losers clears the way for self-heroic redeemers. They will deliver social justice by meting out punishment and spreading the wealth around. Their virtue entitles them to power.

It sounds like a comic-book view of life, but it’s the reality of liberalism today. And thanks to the de Blasio administration, New Yorkers are getting a bitter taste of its divisive nature. So much so that talk about quitting Gotham is surging in some circles.

One friend says 10 wealthy people have told him they are leaving and another says disgusted New Yorkers bought $1 billion in residential property in Florida since the November election. The Sunshine State confers an automatic tax cut of about 12 percent because it has no city or state income tax, nor does it have an inheritance tax.

Beyond taxes, the mayor’s open hostility is a factor. His insulting treatment of former Mayor Bloomberg at the inauguration remains a cloud over him. As one affluent woman, a self-described liberal, told me, “De Blasio hates me, so I hate him.” She doesn’t personally know him, but draws her conclusion from his words and deeds.

The central problem is the mayor’s childish view of wealth.

      • It’s kind of bad as it is. My mother is still alive and refuses to leave the city. The old neighborhood is nothing of what it once was, and now it’s a ghetto. My last remaining brother wants her to go to the Bronx with him, and I will need to find work to buy a house that I have been looking at over here and empty for the past seven years (so much for retirement/poverty).
        The City is now dirty and smells bad. Some areas have been gentrified, and everything else is falling apart. The whites are nothing more than dead meat on the hoof in NYC. It will get worse, again. Problem is, our generation will not handle the trouble, as we once did. This new breed of cops, leaves a bit to be desired. Maybe once they grow up..?


      • I’ve a good friend therein NYC….He and his wife work two jobs each. One full and one part time. And they work together on the weekenders and late evenings renovating homes….
        They have no children and are 39 if I’m not mistaken…
        He told me he and she are just barely making it. That his part time work just pays the taxes taking out of both their more lucrative full time jobs…He’s an engineer and shes a professional home care nurse!
        Both want to leave, but says they can’t afford to…Their combined annual income prior to taxes are $320.000, and their take home annually of that are $122.400 That to me is government theft, and then he says they have all the other taxes that come from living within the city! That after rent, $3.500 ,they can’t buy, it’s cheaper to rent they say, “they are making less than $80.000…
        They have to have the larger space for his wife’s Homecare business…Which they say, is now targeted for new taxes, that there was a tax break for home ran businesses, but not any more.
        That’s $80.000 from $360.000 and that isn’t even the end of it…I don’t know how you, your family or anyone for that matter can live there?
