Corporate welfare is rearing its head again as Nashville is closing in on a $225 million taxpayer handout to build a new major league soccer stadium.
Proponents tout the supposed economic benefits the deal will bring from this growing sport. Yet, no matter what sport stadium it is, the economic costs far outweigh the benefits. These taxpayer-funded stadiums are repeatedly found to be wasteful and hurt taxpayers who are trying to make ends meet.
Contact your local officials today and let them know the government shouldn’t be giving away your taxpayer dollars on sweetheart deals to billionaire owners. Tell them to stand up for their constituents and say no to taxpayer-funded professional sports stadiums.
