Congestion Pricing passes

Well, I've had my doubts for a while now, but the New York City Council was able to pass congestion pricing (although my local CM did note vote in support of it).

The real question is does Bloomberg, Quinn, and Paterson have enough political capital to see this legislation get through the legislature in one piece? Also, I think the fight over congestion pricing really has shown the cleavage of New York City politics. Should we move forward, and for the lack of a better word, have progressive policies, or should we stick with the status quo, reactionary policies and planning?
