Looks like New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has got it right here. Some goofball New York State Assemblyman is crying that the usual ultra-lib governor isn’t providing enough state aid to homeless shelters in New York City.
Assemblyman Andrew Hevesi, who is also New York State’s Social Services Chair, whined “The Governor’s track record of managing homelessness in New York has included claiming we resolved the problem; drastically reducing the State’s share of costs associated with homelessness and poverty; threatening to eliminate funds for shelters this summer; and casting blame for the crisis. If this is what Governor Cuomo has in mind when he talks about providing management expertise, thank you – but no thank you.”
Heveis also blabbered, “The cost of homeless shelters in NYC was $876.5 million in 2014, of which the Governor paid only $123.8 million, or 14 percent from State funds.”
No way! That’s all Cuomo allocated toward homeless shelters in New York City? Just $123.8 million in a year?!…The aforementioned was sarcasm, if one didn’t recognize the tone.
Why do taxpayers need to fund housing for these – literally – bums, to the tune of over $100,000,000, much less nearly $900 million?
This gi-normous amount of money would be better (and more morally) spent on assisting small businesses throughout the state. You know – for people who are actually working and contributing to society. You know – for taxpayers.
Can the people in Hevesi’s district vote him out of office ASAP? Or are the voters there a bunch homeless people, who are sucking off everyone else around the state?
