De Blasio Renews Call For Plastic Bag Ban

The Ny Daily News reports that NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio is calling to outright prohibit plastic bags in the city.
“We need to ban plastic bags — the time for debate on this is over. They’re bad for the environment, they’re bad for the economy, they’re bad for New York,” the mayor wrote Sunday in a tweet. The state is behind the curve here, it’s time to put our planet first.”
The City Council previously passed and de Blasio signed a law to put a 5-cent fee on plastic and paper disposable bags, in an effort to motivate shoppers to bring their own bags, but Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the state Legislature – thankfully – blocked the city from imposing the fee.


  1. It’s time to ban Communists from running New York City. They’re bad for the people, they’re bad for the economy, they’re bad for New York. Go back to Nicaragua!!!

  2. Outof touch. If the supermarket won’t give me a bag,I will literally need to buy bags. There is not one family in this city, other that his champagne sipping friends, that does not have a place in the home where they keep these bags for future use.

  3. I don’t understand if everyone hates this politician who is voting for him, and I know the illegals, the dead, the street people, etc. etc.
