[Vision2020] Moscow Chamber is public too

I don't understand how deleting a source of income will help remove 
an alleged "financial cloud" from the Chamber of Commerce.

And, unfortunately, this is what happens with tax money. We don't 
really get the opportunity to vote with our tax dollars. It's put in 
a pool and spent as elected officials (the thing you can vote on) see 
fit in order to benefit (hopefully) the majority of their 
constituents. Thus, I don't get to vote with my tax dollars that I 
would rather spend money on park improvements instead of improving a 
parking lot. Or letting my tax dollars pay for swine manicure 
technology, etc.

I think Vision 2020 needs a hobby.
