Sh_t Rolls Down Hill

That's what my boss use to tell us each time he had to enforce a upper management decision he didn't agree with.


"Gov. Tom Wolf's administration says it wants to impose new fees on public water utilities to pay for more inspectors and resolve a federal official's warning it isn't adequately enforcing safe drinking water standards."

"With sales slumping because of the new Philadelphia sweetened beverage tax, Pepsi said Wednesday it will lay off 80 to 100 workers at three distribution plants that serve the city."

Regarding the first headline--every time the federal government saves money by making cuts it's passed down to the local level. More inspectors translates to more requirements and fines passed on costing water users even more as an added bonus.

Regarding the second--while it seems Philly government is making out.. not so much it's citizens' coming or going. Soda cost more. Jobs are lost. Two examples of government hardly at work for us.
