Words fail me.  This was originally a scam intended to finance freebie bikes for city residents on the backs of unsuspecting tourists; but since they don't actually spend any time paying attention to what tourists actually do - those who want to use bikes want to use them for several hours, not 30 minutes at a time - they screwed up and created a system where the majority of users are those who bought the ridiculously cheap annual memberships.

The simple - and proper - solution is to raise the fees charged for annual memberships and increase the amount of time a day-tripper or tourist can have to use the bikes.  But then again, since when have liberals ever tried to do it properly when they can do it improperly and raid the taxpayers' pockets at the same time.

And by devising a tax break to help a failing business, Schumer admits that taxes are a burden to the health of business.

This reminds me of a conversation my brother had with a coworker.  Bro said that Obama promised to undo a bunch of stuff that W had done, only to get into office and do nothing.  (I think they were talking about Gitmo, for example.)  Lib said that 0 had found out some details he didn't know when he made the promises.  Bro said "so given the same set of facts, 0 made the same decision as W, meaning that W was right all along."  Lib started stammering and making a fool of himself.  Bro said he & his other coworkers were all laughing at Lib and having great fun.  Of course, Lib would never admit that he had just vindicated W's decisions even though Lib had just said so.
