BAD-Tax: Brooklyn Dem Rebrands Congestion Pricing

One of the relatively new voices to emerge against congestion pricing at last night’s public hearing in Brooklyn was that of Assembly Democrat N. Nick Perry, who represents East Flatbush and parts of Canarsie and Brownsville.

He called Mayor Bloomberg’s proposal to charge $8 to drive into core Manhattan “nothing but a wanton exploitation of taxpaying motorists, what I call the Bloomberg Anti-Driving Tax, the acronym for which is BAD-Tax, a bad tax.”

He is going to have fun with that one.
