Florida GOP Ken Hagan Wrong Again

The City of Tampa may have a highlight reel to show off its successful 2017 College Football Playoff championship, but Hillsborough County doesn't seem to have the tax receipts to prove the event was an economic success for the region.
When Tampa landed playoff championship week more than three years ago, Hillsborough Commissioner Ken Hagan claimed the event would bring somewhere between 1,700 and 1,800 full-time jobs, as well as $250 million to $350 million in economic impact. However, that kind of revenue would have generated an extra $17.5 million to $24.5 million in sales taxes, which there seems to be little evidence to support. here

The Republican Party is built on lies, sustains itself on lies and could not function without lies. It's endemic. The Party attracts liars, then breeds liars and the cycle goes on forever and ever. Amen.
