Tea Partiers: AZ Town's New Trash Plan Reeks Of Socialism

The Arizona Republic reported this weekend about the intense debate surrounding a change to the community's garbage collection services. Currently, Fountain Hills' 25,000 residents can choose between five different collectors. Under the new system, the community has hired a single trash collector to meet the town's garbage hauling needs, collection days will be reduced to once-a-week, and curbside recycling services will be added. ABC15 reports that Town Manager Rick Davis estimated "total savings to reach about $1,000,000 a year," and that officials also hope the changes will cut down on pollution, noise, and traffic.

Tea Party groups have come out strongly against the measure. The Republic reports some people have dubbed it "trashcare," as if it were the local, municipal waste-related cousin of "Obamacare." Fliers were distributed that read "The Hills Will Have Eyes," and which raised the specter of a "Fountain Hills Green Police" poking around citizens' garbage bins. On its website, Arizona Campaign for Liberty warned that "The Fountain Hills Mayor & Town Council is attempting to restrict resident's choice in trash services by forcing residents into a single payer system!" The Fountain Hills Tea Party's website reads, "Once more, government is trying to interfere with free market economics."

OMG!!!

What is with this paranoia about anything resembling socialism? Oh no, the local government is taking measures to save money AND cut down on pollution! Quick, take up arms against the communists who are trying to tell us where to throw our trash.

Aren't these the same Arizonians which the Tea Party loved for it's anti-Immigration legislation?

Even the giant savings isn't jogging them out of their stupidity. Dang.

By the way, we have trash pick up once a week by the town....

AND we have to all put our trash in the same kind of recepticle as everyone else that the town provides (free of charge). We are total socialized garbage collecting, and we don't have rats running around or garbage all over the place.
