$35.5 million in 2 years? Wonder where all the stadium haters are, I'm sure they'll tell us the numbers are fake, and how they wish those $35.5 million dollars could have been collected some place else

Well Appleton, it all depends. Were those increased taxes the Twins are collecting already being collected by there activities? If Bob goes to a Twins game instead of bowling the taxes he paid are not new, they are just coming from another place. On top of that I don't think those increased taxes remotely cover the actual outlays the government made. If the state gave me 200,000 to make my house a much better place to host parties, I am sure the receipts and taxes at my local liquor store and grocery would go way up, but that doesn't mean it is actually a good idea. It all depends on the facts/numbers, which are lot more nuanced than series of tax receipts.
