Bloomberg Plans a $50 Million Challenge to the N.R.A.

nytimes.com — Michael R. Bloomberg, making his first major political investment since leaving office, plans to spend $50 million this year building a nationwide grass-roots network to motivate voters who feel strongly about curbing gun violence, an organization he hopes can eventually outmuscle the National Rifle Association.
So instead of pushing ridiculous cosmetic "assault weapon" bans Bloomberg is going to put his money behind trying... fb.me/6ucTyir9h

Census Survey Revisions Mask Health Law Effects

nytimes.com — WASHINGTON - The Census Bureau, the authoritative source of health insurance data for more than three decades, is changing its annual survey so thoroughly that it will be difficult to measure the effects of President Obama's health care law in the next report, due this fall, census officials said.
Don't know details, but as general rule, seems non-ideal to change survey design exactly when it's most relevant. nytimes.com/2014/04/16/us/…

Talk About Income Inequality! De Blasio Is No Bloomberg, Tax Returns Confirm

nytimes.com — No beachfront acquisitions in the Hamptons. No lavish household expenses. Not even, it turns out, a simple dividend from a stock. New Yorkers already knew that Mayor Bill de Blasio was far less prosperous than his billionaire predecessor, Michael R. Bloomberg. But tax documents released on Tuesday, the filing deadline, revealed just how stark that contrast is.
Tale of 2 New Yorks indeed: Bloomberg's worth (as of 4/15 per Forbes): $31 billion. DeBlasio 2013 earnings: $165k. nytimes.com/2014/04/16/nyr…
