D.C. Open All Night Long for Obama

This from The Washington Post:

“The D.C. Council approved emergency legislation this evening that will allow District bars, nightclubs and restaurants to serve alcohol until 5 a.m. — three hours later than usual — and remain open for food around the clock from Jan. 17 until the morning after Obama’s swearing-in Jan. 20.

The bill was the brainchild of the Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington and was introduced by council member Jim Graham (D-Ward 1), who represents nightlife-heavy neighborhoods of Adams Morgan and Mount Pleasant.”

You got to love it. But wait it gets better!

Marion Berry who is the D.C. Councilman for the 8th Ward said that this would be a good idea because it would bring in more tax revenue. He is absolutely right and it is good to see a politician finally be honest when they make a plan.

It is true that the more business the more tax revenue. The question is how does the government pick the right amount of regulation? If they regulate too much they slow business down thus slowing revenue. If they allow businesses to go free the public freaks and they will not get reelected.
