The city of New York has restored money that was cut from homeless youth services after Bloomberg decided to care about LGBT people yesterday:
As a result of extensive negotiations over the past six weeks, City Council Speaker Christine C. Quinn and Finance Committee Chair Domenic M. Recchia Jr. today announced that the Council and Administration have reached a budgetary agreement on the Fiscal Year 2011 financial plan. The agreement will achieve the same level of spending reductions proposed by Mayor Bloomberg in the November financial plan, but will restore certain cuts that the Council believed would be particularly harmful.[...]
Youth Programs - runaway and homeless youth programs, serving youth who often have nowhere to turn for help, will be fully restored. Additionally, the number of available slots in other afterschool programs will be preserved.
It's great that the money was restored. The money came from cuts from other programs, which, from the titles, sound important as well, but at least they won't directly force people into the street.
Too bad raising taxes on the wealthy, of which NYC has plenty, has effectively been taken off the table. Why should they pay more when the little people can give up things like their homes?
