Liberals are going nuts over this. People on both sides of the political aisle have problems with the concept due to privacy issues but for any leftists reading, here’s a simple question:
How is this any different than the time in 2012 that a New York newspaper published a map which showed the names and addresses of gun owners?
May I humbly submit a better example than the gun owner list?
The government routinely publishes a list of people who get behind on their property taxes as a way of shaming them into compliance, irrespective of the reason they are in arrears.
Why is it okay to shame one group of people but not others?
I’m with the mayor. Publish the names and addresses of welfare recipients, or stop publishing the names of people with tax liens.
(I’m not even sure welfare recipients would even care. There was a time when it was shameful to be on the dole. Now people brag about it, want more, and have lobbyists working on their behalf.)
