Quote by Mayor Bloomberg: "It was plain and simple Congress who forced everybody to go and give mortgages to people who were on the cusp." Bloomberg argued that Congress forced banks and lending giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to loosen their mortgage standards".
"Forced" by Congress..and I'll bet that Republican led Congress forced them by using a water pistol.
Without saying, Mayor Bloomberg wants the "Occupy Wall Street" protesters" out of his city because it's costing NY millions daily in police/fire/ambulance overtime, increased garbage collection, vehicle/equipment/fuel costs, limited coverage of criminal activities happening all over the city (criminals are taking full advantage) and the potential of hundreds of lawsuits being filed in the aftermath by the protesters based on police and their handling of the protesters.
Plus EVERYTHING that the police does is being visually recorded by the thousands and sent all over the world via cell phone and uploaded on Youtube, Facebook, Twitter etc and there is nothing that the NY police or Mayor Bloomberg can do about it.
Mayor Bloomberg is pissed, has no control over this and he dare not try to increase the police's riot activities or stop it.
All he can hope for right now is that old man winter sets in and freezes the protesters out.
