The Economics Of Poverty, or: Robbing the Poor to Give to the Illegal

The Mayor of New York, Bill de Blasio, has just announced he will give guaranteed health care to, among others, illegals. 

Last time I looked, New York was not some wealthy enclave like, say, the Principality of Monaco. It was, and his, a city with extremely high costs of living, where an awful lot of people struggle even to live in conditions that we in Italy call “dignified poverty”. A place with, and I am sorry to say that, an awful lot of hard working losers who keep voting for the Democrats, who then force them to become even harder working and even more losers.

This latest initiative is just an extreme example of what the Democrats do, all over the Country, all the time: they rob the poor and give to the scroungers and the illegals. 

The Democrats pursue an economics of poverty: they will first import illegals, hoping to make of them regular voters one day (certainly already happening in some measure, by the way, in all those State in which electoral fraud is positively encourage, like the “motor voter” ones). They will then proceed to tax the working poor in order to give substantial freebies to their protected classes and hard sock of their power base: those who don’t work – and often have neither intention nor incentive to do so – and those who depress the wage of those who work legally. As the Democrats encourage the abortion of more and more of their future voters, they must import more and more illegals to compensate for the literal killing of their power basis. The game has gone on for decades now, and you would think that those who work hard to maintain politicians without scruple in power and an army of good-for-nothing and illegals protected and well fed would get the dynamics. Alas, they don’t.

You can bet that New York will keep voting Democrat at staggering percentages – percentages which make it clear that the oppressed feed the very system that oppresses them – as the multitude of people working hard to live in conditions that would be considered poverty most everywhere else in the West keep feeding the system that oppresses them.

Last time I looked, more than 400,000 people out of around 8 million lived in the New York Council House system, once a preserve of the working poor and now a preserve of the single mothers and the chronically unemployed; a natural development considering the economic value of what they would, in time, lose if they were to start working hard in some manual, non professional job. You would think those who work hard to live in shared accommodation well into their working careers would look around themselves and start to get it. I am afraid they don’t, and they won’t.

This is why Bill de Blasio has announced the initiative. He will position himself for further political glory when his time as Mayor ends, with the approval of the very people he exploits to finance his political ascent.

Why this is so is difficult to tell, but my best bet is that the Democrats are good at exploiting social envy, telling the working poor that they are on their side whilst sucking the marrow out of their bones.

Start spreading the news: in old New York, you can work hard all day and come home to live with cockroaches, knowing that your tax money has financed scroungers and illegals.

All, of course, in the name of social justice.

    Too true, Mundabor, and you’ve said it well. As a native New Yorker, I know more about the life cycle of coach roaches than I want to. Even expensive places can have roaches and mice and rats. The rats in Central Park cross Fifth Ave. to raid the garbage of the wealthy.

  2. It’s also to cover over their sin/guilt too. The Demonrat party buys the souls of the sexual and emo addicts. God bless~

  3. “Here’s the truth, brothers and sisters, there’s plenty of money in the world. Plenty of money in this city. It’s just in the wrong hands . . . This country has spent decades taking from working people and giving to the 1 percent. This city has spent the last five years doing it the other way around.” – Mayor de Blasio, State of the City Speech, Jan. 10, 2019.

    It would be funny if it wasn’t so pathetic. Along with doling out money to illegals, de Blasio and Cuomo transmit public funds to their benefactors, giving $3 billion in tax breaks (from the “working people”) to Amazon (the 1 %). In return, Jeff Bezos will fund and promote (via the Washington Post, which he owns) their agendas and political campaigns. Meanwhile, the city’s falling apart and the $3 b that could help fix the “working poor’s” subways has gone bye-bye. Btw – I’m beginning to think that U.S. citizens are the serfs on a new American Plantation, paying taxes to fund the food, housing, health and educational costs of illegals – who get all of these services for “free”, meaning they don’t pay for them – we do.
