NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio wants to wait for it…tax the rich to fix subways he helped mess up

This is so typical.  Democrats love to tax the rich because it sounds good to so many people. 
Trouble is in the real world the rich move out and the middle class ends up paying for it any way. 

NY Post reports he said the subways weren’t his responsibility, but Mayor de Blasio now wants to tax wealthy New Yorkers to pay for everything from emergency rail repairs to low-cost bus and train rides for the poor.

De Blasio on Sunday unveiled an election-year pitch to raise $800 million a year for mass transit by soaking the rich with a nearly 14 percent tax increase on high-income Big Apple residents.

This is nothing but a gimmick for De Blasio to energize his shrinking base of support.
