Declares… the Weekly Standard (!), about this quotation, from an industry source:
Of course the toll express lanes will be used more by those with more money.
Only a simple-minded leftist sees that as an argument against them.
For a start the wealthy are often very productive people, and if they are prepared to pay their way to avoid congestion then both they and society benefit.
The Standard goes on to make some truly worthwhile points but was that “I’m not one of those EVIL conservatives!” blurt necessary — especially to supposedly take the edge off a paragraph that, once upon a time, would’ve been printed without any such wimpy qualifications in… the Weekly Standard?
