National and NYC statist politicians invaded our borough this week to do a PR stunt, after local flooding occurred following Hurricane Ida. OAN reported Biden, Schumer, AOC etc skipped right over long standing political issues about cutbacks to sewer system maintenance, which these pols supported, in order to blame the mess on Climate Change and illegal basement apartments. Sewer neglect and global warming are two different things. If these hapless folks can’t attend to fixing an actual municipal problem, what makes them think we should fall in line and support them shilling for more massive government force, to mismanage an alleged global crisis?:
“…Surveying the damage on Monday, Democrat De Blasio was joined by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) to find a culprit for the floods. According to the mayor, so-called climate change was the biggest contributing factor for the historic disaster.
“I want to just finally say, our leaders in Congress, these are two of the people who have been sounding the warning on climate change for years,” he stated. “Congressmember, God bless you for the Green New Deal. We’re applying it right here in New York City… but the bottom line is, this is what climate change looks like.”
Ocasio Cortez, for her part, agreed with the mayor as she blamed climate for the disaster. Other residents in the city however, have not been so quick to believe the nebulous D.C. talking points.
According to a New York Post report on Monday, many residents strongly disagreed with the far left lawmaker.”
