Special Interest Welfare (NOLA Style)

I already wrote about all those fiscal, free-market conservatives in Georgia subsidizing their economy to the tune of $10 Billion. They may want to keep government hands off of business, but they'll never keep business hands off taxpayer dollars!

And you know how I like to compare Georgia with New Orleans?

Down in the Crescent City, folks who own real estate already pay an astronomical amount of property tax to subsidize our feudal lords and ladies for nonexistent city services like streets, water, police and schools. No longer do you have to wonder where the money to the local government goes instead of those things because, in NOLA, property taxes are collected to subsidize private hotels and privately owned pay-parking lots.

Your tax dollars at "work."
