    Bloomberg is a nanny mayor.

  2. Michelle says:

    Charitable giving shouldn’t fall under the purview of these restrictions. Honestly, I think Bloomberg should consider some priorities. Before we worry if the homeless are eating the right amounts of fiber, etc, let’s worry about the fact that they don’t often have any food at all.

    It’s a sad day when private charity, one of the best mechanisms for addressing social justice while preserving individual liberty to make the choice to use assets to that end, is denied in favor of strict government control. If someone chooses to give, let them give as they see fit. Their tax dollars already fund programs over which the public has control.

  3. Louise says:

    Yes, I agree. This is ridiculous re: Bloomberg.

  4. Wasif Huda says:

    In response to the “low quality doctors to treat minority patients,” I am not surprised by this reality. Low quality doctors will work at low-income areas, which have higher minority representation. A tragedy that the most marginalized have the least access to health care and awareness, services that are crucial to live a productive life.

  5. August says:

    “The solution, says United Steelworkers representative Jeff Cech, is that adjunct professors should unionize in an attempt to thwart schools seeking similar cost-savings efforts from avoiding Obamacare. “

  6. Baker says:

    Mayor Bloomberg: “Don’t let them eat cake”

    I don’t know how they missed that.

  7. Slater says:

    Bloomberg is taking his battle against food way too far. He needs to stop trying to act like a mother and start acting like a Mayor.

    It’s not surprising that minority groups have access primarily to low-quality physicians. These groups can’t afford our current rising health care costs, adn therefore they pretty much have to settle for what’s out there, even if it’s not good enough. It’s sad, and upsetting in a way, that this is what this government has brought us to. It seems unfair that only the rich and wealthy get to enjoy services from good-quality physicians while the other ones only get the left-overs, per say, when these latter ones are the ones that usually need more physician assistance at times. I’m curious to see how far this will go, and if eventually these minority groups will have no access to care at all.

  9. Thomas says:

    People seem more attune to the likeability of their physicians than their actual competence when making a choice between different doctors. Just an observation.

  10. Jordan says:

    “The no bagels edict.” Hah. If the city of New York was concerned about homeless obesity, they should just file suit against McDonalds like everyone else.
