I agree with most of it. As a Minnesota taxpayer, I agree with this article. My local Republican state representative voted for the stadium and argues that the GOP would have gotten killed if it did not go through. I think he is full of hooey. I am less likely to vote for him now. The base was strong, and frankly for the sake of Minnesota and other cities I was hoping we would be the state that finally said no to paying these millionaires/billionaires more from the public coffers.
