As individuals, of course people in wheelchairs would love to be on the Walkway on the Hudson, so government is considering paying to create an elevator for the people with disabilities. The reason why tax payers would consider helping is probably because they would want everyone to be equal. At the same time Mr.X has a point to this situation. Our economy is in a financial crisis!!! So money should be saved towards the people with no jobs so people can have more efficient lives. At the same time the people can go on the other side of the bridge...but what if they live in Poughkeepsie and don't have a car? Now what? All of this is unfair yet confusing. There is no say in this dispute, its either one way or the other.
