It’s not hard to see why most politicians are not in business. Generating revenue through congestion pricing to support the MTA and LIRR makes as much sense as starting a new business to support a failing one.
If the MTA and LIRR can’t make ends meet with the money they take in, the first order of business should be to figure out how to make them profitable. If they’re being mismanaged, which they obviously are, an infusion of additional funds is like throwing money into a bottomless pit.
