Panthers Get Big Tax Break

Recommended Posts

You can follow along with the thread. They settled at $215 million. Interesting note, completely opposite of the arguments made by the Panthers for renovations a couple years ago and the team's valuation of the stadium is less then the cost of the renovations made then.

Good stuff, I wonder what community program will have it's funding slashed to give our resident billionaire a tax break.

Cry me a river libtard. Just because a company gets a tax break doesn't mean people starve.

Tepper didn't become a billionaire by feeding the poor.

largely it does not impact you as a fan.

It does however impact you as a citizen.

No, but it definitely means that one of three things happen:

Either you and I pay more taxes to cover the difference, the government cuts services elsewhere to make up the difference, or short term the government borrows money, most likely through municipal bonds to cover the difference and the shortfall can gets kicked down the road with interest.

Calling someone a libtard also doesn’t mean the thing they pointed out goes away. Also Snake, before you call someone else a libtard, you should consider this: supporting tax breaks for some businesses but not others, which is what you’re doing when you support a sports team’s property being taxed differently than everyone else’s, that is the government favoring one private business over another.

There’s a term for that practice, it’s called socialism. The socialist in this case is not the person against the tax break, it’s the person for it.

The government has a long history of not using tax dollars the way it was intended. I speak for myself, I don't trust them to use my taxes to accomplish good for the community, because they seem to be unaccountable. It's better for the individual to decide instead of using compulsory methods. Giving them a "blank check" , IMO, seems irresponsible.
