Rams Leave Taxpayers Holding the Bag

It turned out to be a big waste of the taxpayers money…the effort to keep the rams in St. Louis.

The Rams are leaving and taxpayers are holding the bag. The Post-Dispatch says the effort to get the rams to stay by promising a new stadium will cost $16 million —most of that going to an architect. But, the NY Times told St. Louis to look on the bright side. The paper said that with the city’s shrinking tax base — it would have been a disaster for taxpayers there to help pay for a billion dollar stadium. So the Times called the teams departure good news for St. Louis. Football fans in the city probably disagree.
