So here is the dilemma. Bloomberg, Mayor of NYC, has proposed a tax on drivers who come into Manhattan and drive below 86th Street. The green folks are pumped up about not going to the pump. Some folks on the working-poor side say this is a regressive tax. Congressman Anthony Weiner and State Assemblyman Richard Brodsky are against this tax.
So this is a huge problem and why the right wing will always point at the “progressive” community to say we are a bunch of morons running around fighting for the cause du jour. But when will we, liberals and the like, be able to learn that we can’t have it all?
Now the question is what do we want more?
