Why not amend Councilman Daniel Garodnick's bill to compel businesses with 20 or more employees to offer Transit Check to include all 51 Council members along with several hundred City Council staff.
Councilman Garodnick and colleagues could give up the perks of their free City Hall parking spaces. They could join millions of constituents who use the bus and or subway to get to work. Ditto for the several hundred Council staffers who work near City Hall.
Garodnick and colleagues are addicted to using government coercion as a means to implement their ideology that the government knows what is best. Whatever happened to freedom of choice in the marketplace?
