Billionaire NFL owners sponge of the Tax payers back. Tax loop holes in the code uses Tax-exempt municipal bonds to fund private-use stadiums

Your money is used to fund a sport rather then fund the infrastructure of the country or support needed money for the disabled,the homeless and our veterans.

Our communities gain almost no economic benefits from subsidized sports teams

Here is a recent quote from the Washington Post:

"Recent bipartisan legislation on Capitol Hill aimed to strip federal funding from sports teams. A bill sponsored by Sens. James Lankford, R-Okla., and Cory Booker, D-N.J., would prevent teams from using municipal bonds that are exempt from federal taxes."

Rep. Steve Russell, R-Okla., introduced a similar bill in the House.

Lankford said in a statement in June:

“The federal government is responsible for a lot of important functions, but

financing sports stadiums for multi million—sometimes billion—dollar

franchises is definitely not one of them. Using billions of federal

taxpayer dollars for the subsidization of private stadiums when we have

real infrastructure needs in our country is not a good way to prioritize

a limited amount of funds.”

Sign this petition to end this government waste!

Support all legislation to remove all Subsidies that benefit the NFL.
