NEW YORK (Reuters) - With Bill de Blasio taking office as mayor in January, New York City appears poised for a resurgence of liberal policies.
After 20 years of Republican leadership, not only will America's largest city have the most liberal mayor in a generation, helping him implement change will be a progressive-leaning City Council and a longtime liberal ally in the new public advocate.
For years we have heard conservative members of Congress say that the federal government has a spending problem. Now liberals in Congress are saying we have a revenue problem. Two different takes on the economic mess our country is in and two different positions that will be difficult to resolve. As a result America continues to sink further into debt and calls continue for additional higher taxes.
