Minnesota lawmakers just don’t seem interested.

If the Vikings and their fans want the team to stay, and the owners won’t pay, then the fans should pay through user fees. No public funding should be granted without a pro-rata return on the team’s direct income to the state. If not, not one penny of public monies should be extended.
Contrary to the article’s tone, I am proud the legislature is making this thing difficult! I will not cast my vote for any legislator who votes to support a public subsidy of any kind for the Vikings stafium. Its about time to get our priorities in order for the real needs of the state like roads, bridges, capitol renovation, parks, health care and other meaningful investments.
Haven’t we learned anything from the recent economic crisis? And our state is faced with more to come. We don’t need a Vikings debt albatross around our necks, while searching to solve real issues of concern for the economically battered citizens of our state.
