Breaking news on Bloomberg hypocrisy

Perez reported on Bloomberg’s appaling hypocrisy yesterday–making his own “It Gets Better” video while also cutting funding for queer and homeless youth services here in New York City almost simultaneously. Well lo and behold, Bloomberg appears to have seen the error of his ways. This morning, according to the Ali Forney Center, City Council Speaker Christine C. Quinn and Finance Committee Chair Domenic M. Recchia Jr. announced that the Council and Administration have reached a budgetary agreement on the Fiscal Year 2011 financial plan that fully restores the spending reductions to homeless youth programs proposed by Mayor Bloomberg in the November financial plan.

Damn right.

    Nice when politicians see the error of their ways and make necessary changes. So many do not.

    While I’m very happy about this and it’s extremely important to have this service, as far as I know, funding for HASA and city rape crisis centers still remain cut. They too provide much needed services, moreso than building another ugly, glass, luxury condo for the yuppies.
