Today, the people get to vote on the cap most aldermen wish would go away. The cap would do nothing more than prohibit city spending from rising faster than the inflation rate. That's it. Spending could still rise every year, just not as fast as before. There is no reason for aldermen, or anyone else, to be afraid of that minor restraint. But some people just can't stand the idea that they'll have to make tough decisions and actually set priorities when spending other people's money.
