From the let them eat cake files....

Bloomberg disappoints again and again. He's a RINO's RINO, truly. Illegal aliens can find jobs, but these people can't?
"Most eligible adults between the ages of 18 and 49 can only receive food stamps for three months every three years, but big cities with high un-employment rates can apply to waive that restriction. Chicago, Seattle and Washington have already done that.

According to the report, the demand for food stamps has slowly risen across the five boroughs over the past decade, jumping to just over one million people in February.

Mayor Bloomberg's support of the waiver is a sharp departure from his previous term. Bloomberg had followed in the foot steps of former Mayor Rudy Giuliani whose welfare reform plan to get people off public assistance has been followed in other big cities around the country."
UPDATE: Bloomberg's backed off and decided NOT to apply for the waiver. When one of our members recently enrolled his kids in public school in NYC (yeah, we know) he refused to sign up for the "free" lunch program, which the school itself was pushing, saying it was too much of a hassel to collect the $1.25 a day, or whatever the amount was, from parents. He said, too bad -- you collect my money, I'm not taking your "free" lunch for my kids.
