So Ryan is going to get tax relief for this project, which will attempt to develop the area around this monstrosity, while other areas that Ryan has exclusive rights to develop will probably get the cold shoulder. This boondoggle is going to hurt other parts of the City while it picks the taxpayers pockets.

More Wilfare. Can't say that we shouldn't have seen this coming.

But nothing for protection for our kids at school. Something is wrong with the leadership in Minneapolis.

No, no, no, no, no. This corporate welfare needs to stop. Whoeevr approves of this subsidy in an official position needs to be removed immediately and the legislature needs to ban it, and the office that regulates it.

Boy, oh Boy. Now the fun starts. The Minneapolis Mayor and minions are filling wheelbarrows full of money and bringing down the street to Ryan Companies. I wonder how many homeless men, women and children they have to pass to get there. Shame on you, Minneapolis.

With the Minneapolis Mayor on his way out he must feel the need to create some sort of legacy for himself?

Come on, Minneapolis residents - get some spine and demand that these sweetheart deals come stop. The city council did an end run around you in the first place when they approved the stadium deal without letting you vote on it. How many more times are you going to let them stick it to you?

Who is a bigger supporter of corporate welfare Rybak or Dayton? Both seem more than willing to stick it to taxpayers to aid the politically well connected.

Makes no sense, Wilf needs an attractive venue to make more money. Wilf must have an attractive venue. Government is contemplating spending money for no apparent reason than they can. [sic-old joke] Enough should be enough. In 42 years of running my own business not one penny came from government support. For me it was sink or swim. We swam and am proud of it.
