NY Mayor Bloomberg Blames State's Mess on Gov. Cuomo
New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is at it again, this time going off on Governor Cuomo and many other state legislators claiming they aren't fit for any job in the private sector.
In a recent interview on a New York TV station, Bloomberg slammed the state's legislators saying, "The average legislator who has to make policy on things that influence our lives, our kids' lives, our future, would they ever get a job in the private sector making policy on big things? No, not a chance."
Bloomberg also slammed Gov. Cuomo for his frequent practice of attaching a "message of necessity" to bills sent to the legislature. This practice forces quick votes on bills and prevents lawmakers from having enough time to fully consider them before being expected to cast a vote.
"Why can't you give it time? Well, the answer is they don’t want anybody to see it. That's the only explanation," Bloomberg said.
Bloomberg's criticism comes only days after several New York officials were arrested accused of attempting to fix the upcoming mayoral election.
