Bravo to Bloomberg and the YouTube clip of 2009

New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg said on the John Gambling radio show this morning that any increase in assistance/stimulus that New York City receives for the poorest citizens will go only to those with dependents (namely children).

Any able-bodied citizens age 18-50 with no dependents will not receive any additional food stamps and will need to continue to fulfill the 5 hour per week work requirement that currently exists to receive the food stamp subsidy they are already receiving. Most of that 5 hours of work is for job training and skills development.

And of course Rick Santelli's rant on CNBC should be linked on every conservative blog on the internet.
