A Round and a Roundy: Bill’s Belated Bailout

10:00 AM EDT on March 17, 2021

Cartoon: Bill Roundy

Leave it to Sleepy de Blasio to propose a taxi driver recovery plan that is late and insufficient.

That's how our national treasure cartoonist Bill Roundy sees the mayor's $65-billion fund, which offers interest-free loans and some grants to drivers who are already way underwater and being preyed on by multiple predators.

We hope it will encourage our elected officials to do more for suffering drivers (as Charles Komanoff has been urging), but we're not optimistic.

All of Bill Roundy's cartoons are archived here.
