On what planet is it a good idea to ration toilet paper as a means of closing a budget deficit? Apparently, this is exactly what New York City is doing right now.
The picture contained in the article makes me wonder whether the savings from the “spared squares” is being eaten up by having to pay salaries to bathroom attendants. Of course, in a leftist’s dream world where “jobs” is the mantra (as opposed to economic freedom, efficiency and growth), this makes perfect sense. In a logical world, Mayor Bloomberg would confront nasty and bloated government labor unions like our own Mayor Berry is doing.
