Well, he just found $116 million to give to MetLife.

Note: I find it more appropriate to give a company bringing 2,600 jobs to NC incentive money than a professional sports franchise that benefits only a handful of people in the state.

Ok, where is the outrage Panthro?

If thats what you think then I am sorry to let you down. I'd rather give $100M to MetLife 100 out of 100 times then give JR money for renovations.

Why? Surely MetLife doesn't need the public money. They make millions. Why can't they spend their money instead of taking tax incentives?
