NYC has long been a city defined by its people. What was once a gathering place for Native Americans soon became a settlement for European immigrants. This settlement of European immigrants is now a city of 8 million people and counting.
To ensure that NYC continues grow, we have to ensure that its people continue to have children. Having children is one of the greatest blessings any human being can have and as Mayor of NYC I will work hard to try to ensure that this blessing is a used by the people of NYC. To ensure that our communities continue to grow and thrive in prosperity, we have to ensure that the residents continue to invest in the future of this city by having children. We must not be afraid of any human life, but we must love all forms of human life.
The saying “The More, the Merrier” is a saying that is valid and true due to the fact that it is based on the law of large numbers. This law of statistics helps us understand that better things are more likely to happen with more people alive. In order for this influx of people to function in society there must be an educational reform to improve NYC Public Schools so that all future children of NYC will have the basic knowledge, tools, and skill sets to secure success in a more competitive world. A more competitive world will bring out the best in all of us and not the worst. In a world with more people, there will have to be a new building standards that will enhance NYC and its beloved skyline so that property owners and builders can build more vertical at a lower cost by having building expenses for building skyscrapers above 70 stories a treated as tax write-off. With these two measures in place, we will make the most out of the surface area of NYC and ensure that for years to come NYC will continue to be not only the building capital of the world, but also a place to find cheap affordable housing for people.
With all this mind, I would like to invite the LGBT community to procreate and ensure that NYC continues to be a vibrant and diverse place and the best way to do that is to have children. If the members of the LGBT community as well as other people have children then NYC will continue to grow at a favorable rate. In order to help both the LGBT community and other straight individuals to have children, I as mayor propose an aggressive benefits package to lessen the cost of having a children and successfully raising children.
This benefits package will include a tax-credit of $10,000 for new household units that have a new born child, and living in a home with either an male female couple , male male couple , or female female couple. In cases where there is a surrogate mother, the surrogate mother has to live with the child and thus it will be a household unit of four people. Surrogate mothers will be protected by law to be with the child as it will be beneficial for both. In the case where either one or both in a male female couple, male male couple, or female female couple are trans-gendered, and a surrogate mother is used, the surrogate mother will still have to live with the child. The $10,000 tax-credit will be given every tax year starting from the birth of the child and onward up until the child reaches 14 years of age from which the $10,000 tax-credit will be reduced to $5,000. At age 18, the tax-credit will be discontinued. The woman who gave birth to the child will receive the tax-credit. This tax-credit will be contingent on the mother, along with the other members of the household, attending together a yearly parenting workshop which will aid parents by teaching the latest -proven parenting tips and techniques to ensure that the child continues to healthily grow and keenly develop the mind to prepare the child for school and beyond.
This workshop will also provide parents with the resources they need to have success in parenting and childcare, such as job training, career education, drug and alcohol rehab, and classes in financial education.
This aggressive benefits package, will include also include an additional tax-credit of $30,000 for the adult members of the household manage to stay together for the first 18 years of a child’s life. The payments will be disbursed in three stages after the child turns 6-years, 12 years, and 18 years of age. This tax-credit is meant to repay household units that stay together and are a true testament of love.
Also, in order to ensure that parents and children grow up in a drug-free world, I propose an additional tax-credit for parents who don’t do drugs. This tax-credit like the previous will be for $30,000 and disbursed in three stages after the child turns 6-years, 12 years, and 18 years of age.
Finally, to alleviate the high rental costs of daily living, especially for household units with children who attend NYC Public Schools, I propose a housing voucher program for families who demonstrate financial need, no matter how that family is composed. The housing voucher program will be based upon the general standard for rent in NYC being based an individual earning 40 times the rent. The Voucher Program will greatly help students of NYC public schools who have families that are having trouble paying rent or are homeless. The purpose of the voucher program is to provide children indiscriminate of who their father or mother may be, the housing stability needed in order to secure success in school and in life. This program
Below is a chart of how the housing voucher will be based upon the families annual income.
With this benefits package, we can ultimately put divisions to rest, and focus on what matters most which is human life. By focusing our society around human life, we can make NYC the best place to live on earth.
