Mayor Bloomberg Announces New Yorkers Are Living Longer Than Ever

Mayor Bloomberg held a press conference at Lincoln Hospital in The Bronx today to announce New Yorkers are living longer than ever. Average high life expectancy in the city is now at a record high of 80.6 years, an increase of nearly three years since 2000 and nearly two-and-a-half years longer than the national rate of 78.2 years.

Mayor Bloomberg credited this increase to his anti-smoking, anti-crime, health and traffic initiatives. “If you want to live longer and healthier than the average American, then come to New York City,” Mayor Bloomberg said in a statement. “By investing in health care and continuing to encourage more New Yorkers to take charge of their own health, we’ve experienced dramatic improvements in life expectancy.” Read More

    THE OPPRESSION IN NEW YORK IS UNCANNY. THE STRESS OF LIVING HER FIGHTING FOR SPACE WITHOUT AFFORDABLE HJOMES NOR APTMTS WITHOUIT RENT CONTROL HAS PLACED MANYFAMILIES AND SINGLE MAN AND WOMEN INTO THE STREETS. THE MAJOR SEEKS APPROVAL I DISAPPROVE OF HIS STATEMENTS. PEOPLE ARE NOT LIVING THEY ARE SURVING THAT IS NOT A STATISTIC TO BRAG ABOUT. AND TO PLAY THE ROLE OF FATHERING AND MOTHERING CITIZENS TO NOT SMOKE BY TAXING AND INCREASING THE PRICES OF PRODUCTS IS A DECIEPTION. ITS DISGUSTING TO SEE HOW INTRUSIVE THE MAJOR IS  IGNORING THE POOR AND MIDDLE CLASSES TO GAIN POWER AND CONTROL BEHIND SUPERFICIAL MANDATES IS IMMATURE AND NARCISTIC.
