T.A. Responds to Fidler’s Tax’n'Tunnel Pipe Dream
We probably shouldn't be lavishing any more attention on Lew Fidler's Tax'n'Tunnel proposal but Transportation Alternatives' Paul Steely White fired off a pretty good, concise response to the Daily News the other day:
Instead of supporting congestion pricing, Councilman Lew Fidler wants to impose billions of dollars in payroll taxes and dig three new tunnels ("Tunnel visions," Nov. 13). If Fidler truly wants to help those who rely on mass transit, he should recognize that they don't need tax hikes or holes in the ground, but the immediate transit improvements that congestion pricing would provide.

OK, I'll admit it. I just miss mixing it up with Fidler in the comments section. Lew, where'd ya go?
