    My question is:

    Why would you call Bloomberg a liberal? And why would it surprise you that he would defend Wall Street? He's the richest man in NY State, and he made all his money from the financial sector.

    This. Mahanttan is a service economy. less $$ for wall street has a trickle down effect on everything from resturants to yankee game tickets. and city gets a cut of all of it.
