"Because the government is selling something valuable at a small fraction of its true market cost." I agree that parking has a value that isn't properly priced, but adding a premium on spaces built and maintained with everyone's tax base seems a bit unfair to those who can't afford the premium envisioned. I think your statement about
"everyone wastes time and fossil fuels driving around and around looking for a spot." has the desired effect of reducing car dependancy without adding to the financial burden of living in this city. The scarcity of spaces affects everyone, so why not leave the fairest system inplace while letting the market discourage people from owning cars?

In the end though, all the angst over parking would disappear if there where more dependable transit.
