Bill de Blasio has made some outrageous claims in the past but this one tops them all. The Mayor of New York City has claimed the President’s budget will kill children. Yes, that’s not a typo. This level of insanity is well known to readers of the American Lookout, but these claims have since gone unchallenged by most of the leftist Media Industrial Complex.
The Hill reports:
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) on Tuesday said that “children will die” if President Trump’s proposed budget is approved by Congress.
“It is not an overstatement to say that some children will die because of this,” he said at a press conference in the Bronx, according to The New York Daily News.
De Blasio cited proposed cuts to the Children’s Health Insurance program and food stamps as evidence the budget would harm children.
“Think about that for a moment — 125,000 children who will be less healthy because of Trump’s budget,” he said. “Five hundred thousand kids in [Trump’s] hometown will have less food to eat because of this proposal.”
“A plan written by billionaires and millionaires for billionaire and millionaires — that’s what this is. It’s transparent. The money is going to come off the backs of working people, and in many cases, children.”
This is nonsense of course. As many have tried to explain to the leftists and the media, the ‘cuts’ for the most part are simply decreases in future spending in an attempt to balance the budget. It beggars belief how they don’t understand that if the country is insolvent, we will destroy any future our children and grandchildren would have anyway.
