At last! some one in city government understands economics!

remember that axiom from economics 101 which states

what you tax you get less of what you subsidize you get more of.

Now look around your city, state and the country and see the results of 60 years of ignoring that axiom plus over taxation, regulation of business by city, county, state and federal government and aggressive bully tactics by unions.
