Bill de Blasio, the Mayor of New York, has an idea. It cannot possibly work.
Idiotic Idea of the Day
Please consider Mayor Vows to End New York City Street Homelessness ‘As We Know It’.
Mayor Bill de Blasio released a plan Tuesday aimed at getting nearly all of the estimated 3,600 people who are living on New York City streets and in the subway system into shelters and homes within five years.
The Democratic mayor’s plan to “end street homelessness as we know it” includes adding 1,000 new “safe haven” beds in churches and other non-profits and 1,000 apartments earmarked for homeless people.
