Dear fellow tax hikers, a grave injustice occurred at today's Hamilton County Commissioners meeting. Bengals Owner Mike Brown wants $300,000 to upgrade the stadium's instant replay system and he didn't get it! We are disgusted by this development.
The Bengals only earned $49 million last year, good for 5th in the NFL. That's not enough. Mike Brown needs more and we're going to make sure he gets it. When the Bengals want something, it is the duty of all Hamilton County taxpayers to provide.
We don't care that the current instant replay system still works. We don't care that the NFL is under a lockout and that there may not be a season next year. We want to spend $300,000 to replace a system that isn't broken and may not be used for years. Don't you?
We applaud County Commissioner Greg Hartmann for his support of this deal. Tax Hike Hartmann endorsed this spending plan, defended it against the unfair criticism, and he expected it to pass. Tax Hike Hartmann did not throw in the towel until those conservative Commissioners Todd Portune and Chris Monzel announced they would not support this expenditure. This will change. Your money is Mike Brown's money and he is going to get it.
