Senator Díaz to Mayor Bloomberg:
Mr. Mayor Will You Please Make Up Your Mind?
Bronx, NY - Senator Rev. Rubén Díaz today asked Mayor Bloomberg a very simple question:
“Mr. Mayor, will you please make up your mind?”
“Last week, Mayor Bloomberg released a video wherein he stated his support for marriage equality ‘Because government shouldn’t tell you who to love or who to marry’.
“Today, Mayor Bloomberg sought permission from the Federal Government to prohibit New York food stamp recipients from using their food stamps to purchase soda and other sugary beverages.
“Mr. Mayor, will you please make up your mind? It is hypocritical to say on one hand that the government should not be involved. Today, however, that is exactly what you did.
Either the government should or should not be involved in telling people what or what not to eat, drink, and smoke, or who they can or can’t marry. You can’t have it both ways.”
