Maybe its a war on suburbanites, or a Ward 1 war on Ward 7 and 8, or some other meme - but war on cars it is not.

I think you're getting at something here. And whether you call it "war on suburbanites" or something else, when you boil it down it's just self-determination.

We don't even think about it when US elected officials pass legislation that serves the interests of US citizens--even if that legislation negatively impacts Mexico. And the first thing Virginia lawmakers do before passing legislation is not to sit down and ask each other, "So...how might this negatively impact DC residents?"

So I'm not quite sure why it's such a shock that DC lawmakers occasionally pass laws that are intended to promote DC residents--even if those laws have some minor negative impact on suburbanites.
