Why? Did you know that the current rate for a guided trip up the Nose is about $4,600? Did you also know that DNC pockets about $2,000 of that? That is what happens when you have a government-sanctioned monopoly at work. The prices jump and (most often, but not in this case) the quality drops.

However, there is more than just the issue of monopolies, cost and quality. There is an issue of freedom. As in, I should be free to hire whoever the hell I want. Who the hell is the government to tell me that if I want to go rock climbing I absolutely have to hire company X and I cannot hire company Y? That runs directly contrary to the entire foundation America is laid upon--capitalism, freedom and democracy. When the government starts making our choices for us, we normally call that totalitarianism.
