Needless to say, Mayor Bloomberg is not happy about her change of heart. "It's just patently unfair to New Yorkers and Americans and it contravenes established policy for 130-odd years and it just doesn't make sense," Bloomberg said. Apparently the Hungarian mission in NYC had just written out a check for $32 million to the city when the State Department told them to cancel it.
The State Department says the policy was changed because other nations were threatening to charge U.S. properties taxes. Meanwhile, Mayor Bloomberg says Clinton's "betrayal" has cost the city $260 million (and counting).
