Congestion Pricing

Dueling Videos: Weprin and McCaffrey vs. New York’s Future

Azi Paybarah at the Politicker shot this video of Queens City Council Member David Weprin's anti-pricing rally yesterday. Sharing the podium with Weprin is Walter McCaffrey of Keep NYC Congestion Tax Free. Can you count the distortions relayed in this nine minute reel?

After the jump, Azi gets a response from Michael O'Loughlin of the Campaign for New York's Future.

Azi has another video in which Weprin explains that the City Council actually doesn't support pricing, despite last week's 30-20 vote.
