When it comes to winning hearts and minds in public-policy debates, I see the world a lot like Seinfeld's character George Costanza sees resorting to parking in a garage. "A garage," Costanza said. "I can't even pull in there. It's like going to a prostitute. Why should I pay, when if I apply myself, maybe I could get it for free?" But, instead of applying themselves and making a good case for their cause, some in power-wielding Philadelphia are apparently happy to just "pay-to-sway" no matter the societal costs of this policy prostitution.
