Actually my comment at 7:12 was tongue-in-cheek. I agree with you, but have you ever noticed on this blog how everyone blows a gasket when government at any level tries to do anything for the poor? The response to the city's making buses free is a prime example. I just can't resist tweaking the right-wing freaks.
