The Grandmotherly Governor and Her Carrots: A Satirical Look at Hochul’s Housing Plan

Hey there Folks!
Melvin P. Atwater here and you’re not gonna believe the big old Bag of BS I have for you today!
I’m sure a few of you will call BS on it, but it’s on the internet so it must be real! Quantum Universe and all, you know. Maybe not here and maybe not now, but somewhere, somehow.
The logic is infallible!

In the world of politics, there’s no shortage of BS. And today, we’re taking a closer look at the latest serving from New York’s Governor Kathy Hochul.

Hochul, who recently announced a $650 million housing incentives plan, has been parading around Long Island, trying to drum up support for her $233 billion budget plan. She’s been playing the role of the doting grandmother, promising to build a better future for the young ones who can’t afford to live in the towns they grew up in.

But let’s not forget, this is the same Hochul who previously tried to push a politically radioactive proposal to mandate more housing in New York City suburbs, only to abandon it when she realized her sticks were more like twigs. And let’s not forget her attempt to legalize apartments on single-family lots, which was also set aside.

Now, she’s back with a new plan, and this time, she’s brought carrots. Or rather, checks. To access the $650 million in funds, communities will first have to receive a ‘pro-housing’ certification from the state, a sort of gold star given to communities receptive to housing development.

But outside the high school where Hochul was speaking, a small group of protestors gathered, their signs reading ‘No housing development!’ It seems not everyone is buying into Hochul’s grandmotherly charm and her bag of carrots.

So, is Hochul’s housing plan a genuine attempt to address the housing crisis, or is it just another cleverly disguised cow pie? Only time will tell. But one thing’s for sure, in the world of politics, there’s always plenty of BS to go around.

As they say, in politics, there’s no shortage of BS.

Only in the world of politics, folks!
