Mayor Ed Koch Saved New York City from Public Unions & their thugs. On July 13th, 1977, the bankrupt city reached its nadir when a 24-hour blackout gave way to mass looting. Bushwick, a working-class neighborhood in Brooklyn, was practically burned to the ground. The Overpaid Unionized Police & Fire Fighters told citizens & business owners "Why should we risk our lives for you. What have you done for us?" Then in 1978, Edward Irving Koch became New York’s 105th Mayor. He put an end to that shit! We need an Ed Koch to save the USA from Obama & his Overpaid Public Union Thugs.
