    I didn't realize all the Miami residents lived in hotels and therefore are paying the extra 1% bed tax. No wonder they don't want the renovations.

    @spesh it's not people who use tax payers money for food that are low life scum. It's the many who use it as the only income their willing to try for. Taking advantage of the system is what makes them low life scum and there are way to many doing it.

    Its not used for highways, schools, are anything of the sort. In government finance, every revenue stream has a unique output, and all monies collected from the "bed tax" are streamlined through just a few programs, none of which are use on state highways. When the government collects taxes, the money isnt put into one giant bucket to fund all government programs. In fact, 60% of that "bed tax" in Miami goes to fund programs for people that dont even live here.

    It was a metaphor, dude. Doesn't matter what the tax is or how it's used, it will have an impact on south Florida citizens, regardless if it comes from tourism money or not.

    There is still no set date for the renovations, right? It wouldn't seem like it after reading the article. Hopefully we can get this thing rolling soon.

Tax payers are paying for the baseball stadium until 2049, and the Dolphins are $230 million in debt from their LAST set of renovations. What happens in 5 years when our owner decides to dress the stadium up some more?

    But hey, if some roads cant be maintained or a hospital cant be built, no worries, you can just walk(youd be forced to walk) to the stadium to enjoy some good ole' fashion football. After you buy a ticket of course.
    I'll make something very clear for you. Whenever businesses get tax breaks or some kind of loan like this, that is the furthest thing from socialization of anything. People like Ross create jobs, and as a state you want ppl like that in your neck of the woods so to speak. Welcome to the real world, welcome to how our economy works, or rather how it use to work, when it actually worked. I for one want Florida to do well, and to prosper. If we lose ppl and in turn a franchise like the Dolphins we all suffer.

    The highway stuff, is just nonsense!
