Apparently Mayor Bloomberg’s angst doesn’t stop at salt shakers. He believes that the new crop of legislatures heading to Washington D.C. is bunch toothless rubes that can’t read and write:
"If you look at the U.S., you look at who we're electing to Congress, to the Senate -- they can't read. I'll bet you a bunch of these people don't have passports. We're about to start a trade war with China if we're not careful here, only because nobody knows where China is. Nobody knows what China is."
-- New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, quoted by the Wall Street Journal, warning Americans to stop blaming the Chinese for their country's problems
I want to know which is worse: legislators who can’t read, or those who pass 2500 page bills without reading them. At least the illiterates wouldn’t shove a major piece of legislation down our throats.
Mayor Bloomberg is another New York snob, who is completely out of touch with ordinary Americans. Its elitist jerks like this guy who has ran this country into the ground.
