Po­lit­i­cal scribe: Mayor’s Plan Is Same Old, Same Old

New York Post - - POST OPINION -

Bill de Bla­sio has just been re­elected and al­ready it feels like “déjà vu all over again,” says Will Bred­der­man at Crain’s New York. The mayor told re­porters he plans to take his “man­date” to Al­bany and “re­lit­i­gate the bat­tles he lost in his first term”: a man­sion tax, a mil­lion­aire’s tax, more pre-K fund­ing and rent-law re­forms. But in­sid­ers say de Bla­sio “is weaker now than ever in the state cap­i­tal” — and push­ing those pro­pos­als will ran­kle Se­nate Repub­li­cans as well as Gov. Cuomo. Mean­while, the mayor re­port­edly is look­ing to form a fed­eral po­lit­i­cal-ac­tion com­mit­tee — an “eerie re­minder” of his past po­lit­i­cal fundrais­ing that trig­gered mul­ti­ple crim­i­nal probes.
