My favorite line from the article above-

"Commuters are thrilled with the idea.
"It's a good thing – they should pay their fair share," Manhattan resident Michael Neal said. ""


Pay their fair share? I believe they already pay well beyond their fair share of taxes.
I can't stand this liberal mentality that the those who go out and bust their @ss to become successful are the bad guys in our society and that everyone else is owed something by them.

Last time I checked we are capitalist country....though come January we may be Socialists if the liberals take over.

In socialist countries the only millionaires are the politicians. You know, like Bill and the Hildabeast.

Why the hell should anyone but these commuters pay for this. I can't figure out why when I pay a toll to go over a bridge, some of that money go to mass transit.

Let the people who use mass transit pay for mass transit. Screw this subsidization thru another new tax.

Dem multi millionaires like Clintons, Kerry, Edwards and 100 mil Gore wouldn't hesitate to raise the taxes on te rest of us prols now that they have their's. Ostesinbly to keep us out of the club. The height of hypocricy.

When a bunch of those businesses end up pull up stakes and head off for more friendly waters, those same politicians will be more than happy to simply raise the taxes on the businesses that are left, in order to make up the lost revenue.
As fore the businesses that are forced to stay, who do you think they will end up passing those tax increases along to?

The guest on Glen Beck was saying that last night. NYC is losing tax revenue because of the faltering economy but NYC is not trimming the budget, just looking for different ways to tax who is left or is still making money.
