Set-asides skew our tax priorities
So much of our tax dollars are already in a straight-jacket. Set asides for special causes feel good, so we pass them, BUT, less money is left over for everything else we need - libraries, parks, police. As our budget priorities change, we can't reallocate spending for our City's biggest priorities because of the set-asides that force us to spend money one way, even when it could be better used somewhere else. How do we fix this problem to make sure that our tax dollars work for us?
