Bloomberg to Bureaucracy: ‘Suck it Up’

Michael Bloomberg had a stern warning for commissioners or administration officials who complain about having to cut their budgets.

Speaking with reporters at the Sheraton New York in midtown, where the Clinton Global Initiative is being held, Bloomberg said, “I think we go into this with a group of commissioners in this city—and deputy mayors—that are as good a group as anyone’s put together.

"Are they going to complain? Are they going to feel prevailed upon?" he asked. "Absolutely. Now suck it up and get back to work, because that the job and they’re going to have to do it.”
