Rent Seeking the Elderly

by Jadrian

In a tight battle for City Council, Leslie approaches the President of the Pawnee Senior Citizens with a plan to place wheelchair ramps on every city building to make it easier for elderly citizens to get around. Bobby Newport announces a very similar plan, but instead of ramps, they propose adding chair lifts to each building. Both are pandering to the elderly vote with essentially the same program.

P&R: Stairs are a Young Man's Game

Leslie and Bobby are fighting for the elderly vote by offering competing programs, Ramp Up Pawnee and Rise Up Pawnee.
