Radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh says New York City's newly inaugurated Mayor Bill de Blasio punished wealthy residents "for being rich" by not plowing the streets in the city's Upper East Side after Tuesday's snowstorm.

"Already the rich on the Upper East Side are claiming that de Blasio's not plowing their streets to get even with them for being rich," Limbaugh said Wednesday on his radio show.

Limbaugh said de Blasio's excuse was that it was "just a GPS problem." Limbaugh said some New Yorkers alleged that de Blasio intentionally did not plow the streets in an area where many wealthy New Yorkers live.

Limbaugh said the reason was so the wealthy "can find out what it's really like for most people in this snake pit of a country."

In his inaugural speech, de Blasio, a Democrat, announced plans for new taxes on wealthier residents to pay for social programs, including early childhood education. A new tax plan would require approval from the state government.

Limbaugh wondered whether resulting traffic delays and bottlenecks would prompt an investigation, similar to the one New Jersey Republican Governor Chris Christie recently faced. Christie battled fierce criticism over lane closures on the George Washington Bridge in September, purportedly for political payback.

"Is this kind of like what Christie did, or is alleged to have done — de Blasio punishing his political opponents by not plowing the streets where they live?

"I'm wondering. Will there be an investigation of this?" Limbaugh asked.
