Bloomberg Does Not Want His City Drinking

Bloomberg Does Not Want His City Drinking

The mayor who said he did not need to run for President because he already has “his own army” and vast power in his current position in New York is again acting as the city’s nanny.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg is trying to limit the sale of alcohol in his city after already successfully banning guns, public smoking, trans fats, salt and sugary drinks, according to The New York Post.

The New York Health Department’s Partnership for a Healthier New York City initiative proposes to slash the number of establishments in the city that sell booze through community “transformation” grants to be provided under President Barack Obama’s healthcare law.

One of the goals listed in the “request for proposal” document to community groups is “reducing alcohol retail outlet (e.g. bar, corner store) density and illegal alcohol,” a planning document obtained by the Post states.

There have also been discussions of banning liquor advertising seen by millions of passengers in the city’s massive public transit system.
