Funny how all the Republicans on this board who have stood party lines and railed against any tax increases and fought government involvement at all levels are now screaming for a tax hike and begging the state government to step up and keep their beloved Panthers in Charlotte.
Republicans like football. They don't want to raise taxes and give it to poor people, that's not the Republican way. It's ironic though, that Pat McCrory is the one who threw up his hands and said no, considering he was elected mayor of Charlotte during the Panthers first season.
Financially it's probably the right move. As for getting re-elected...if the Panthers move, he'll be run out of the state.
