The Silver Bullet or the Werewolf?

The line in support of congestion pricing starts here.

Think of Soviet shoppers spending their lives in endless queues to purchase artificially low-priced but exceedingly scarce goods. Then think of Americans who can fulfill nearly any consumerist fantasy quickly but at a monetary cost. Free but congested roads have left us shivering on the streets of Moscow.

I can't think of a single reason not to apply congestion pricing to San Francisco.
