The President is holding a confab with big city mayors and the new mayor of New York City, Bill DiBlasio, will be in attendance. That should tell you everything you need to know about the agenda.
They’re going to be talking about the most pressing issues for cities today. Income inequality. Improving city schools.
While we don’t know who will be there other than DiBlasio, it’s a good bet that the new Sandinista mayor of NYC isn’t far out of the political “mainstream” of this group. It’s interesting that the one subject that they should be discussing, but that won’t make the agenda, is the financial health of those 17 cities. It’s a very good bet most of them aren’t all that far from being Detroit.
“Income inequality” is nothing more than the new progressive buzzword for “we need to raise taxes on the rich” so we can buy more votes from the lazy.
As far as improving education, while the mayors will be crying for more money, they’ll refuse to address the problem that is destroying education in our cities, teachers’ unions and Common Core. Teachers’ unions are the current problem, Common Core will be the ultimate dumb-down tool. If Mayor DiBlasio wants to improve his city’s schools, he could start by getting rid of the $22 million per year the Rotten Apple is spending on “teachers” who are confined to the city’s “rubber rooms” where they keep their pedophile “teachers” who they won’t fire.
Welcome to the world of “progressive leadership” where the problems that will destroy us and obvious solutions to real problems are ignored in favor of feel-good talking points.
