How about throwing out the biggest bum himself -- Bloomberg ?

Mayor Michael Bloomberg's administration is rounding up homeless people and offering them one-way tickets to send them back to their original home towns.

ABC News is reporting that New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has been operating a controversial program that is forcing out homeless people from New York City.

This callous and insensitive program banishes the homeless to where ever they originally came from.

'' The program, which has been in operation since 2007, has sent people back to Florida, Georgia, the Carolinas, Puerto Rico and even Paris. Sometimes the travel comes with big price tags like $2,500 to go to South Africa.

'' Bloomberg has defended the controversial program, saying relocation is much less expensive than spending up to $36,000 per year to keep a homeless family in a shelter. "This saves taxpayers of New York an enormous amount of money," Bloomberg said. "Also keep in mind nobody's forcing these people to go. They want to go." ''
