The Pulitzer Prize winning news site that are supposed to fact check politicians, cant handle that the national debt has decreased by $12 billion since Trump took office. In their supposed “fact check” of Trump’s tweet that “The media has not reported that the National Debt in my first month went down by $12 billion vs a $200 billion increase in Obama first mo.” the site confirms that “The numbers check out. And in fact, the total public debt has dropped another $22 billion.” However, they cannot have Trump look good, so they declared the statement “Mostly False.”

Thanks to the tireless efforts of Simcha Felder in the Senate and Michael Cusick in the Assembly, residents can finally look forward to putting Mayor Bill de Blasio’s Bag Tax to rest. An agreement between the State Senate and Assembly, sponsored by Senate Cities Committee Chairman Felder, stopped the implementation of the City’s most recent regressive tax by establishing a moratorium—a freeze until a new City Council begins their term in 2018.
