The Congress Might Cut One Huge Funding Source Of The Increasingly Anti-American Teams

As the careless payers refuse to end the anthem protest, many sports fans are ready to boycott the NFL, and now they and on the sports team got a nasty surprise. The Congress might cut one huge funding source of the increasingly anti-American teams.

In the U.S. House and Senate, there is bill currently reviewed which will ban the use of federal money for financing the construction of professional sports arenas.

Oklahoma Republican Rep. Steve Russell first presented the bill a few months ago, and now has become an interest to others as well as the NFL players continue to express their dishonor of America. The bill already has bipartisan support.

“The federal government is responsible for a lot of important functions, but financing sports stadiums for multi-million – sometimes billion – dollar franchises is definitely not one of them,” Rep. Russell said.

The financing is a form of community bonds that channel taxpayers’ money into the projects for construction of sports arenas.

“For the past 17 years, 36 professional athletic stadiums have been built or renovated by federal tax-exempted municipal bonds. This cost taxpayers $3.2 billion dollars,” the Caller explained, quoting information from the Brookings Institute.

 

Advocates for the federal funding of professional sports arenas often justify the costs by pointing to economic development, but new research shows that isn’t true.

“There is no statistically significant positive correlation between sports facility construction and economic development,” the Journal of Economic Perspectives said.

So, millionaire players are protesting the country that funds their home stadiums, and that is kind of annoying.

Let’s be clear, this funding cut should be for all arenas not just for the ones that belong to the teams that protest the national anthem.

Ending this funding is a great idea, but now as these spoiled elites are protesting it sounds even better. This is a nice move to remind them that it’s not all about them.

Freedom of speech doesn’t give players the ability to sit during the national anthem… but the First Amendment does, so their teams have no way of forbidding them to kneel.

    I think the funding should be cut across the board and not just for those teams that have dishonored our country, our flag and our servicemen. These players make so much money, let them fund these arenas. Their salaries are an embarrassment .
