Last evening I emailed President Obama as per his request of the nation.
I pleaded with him and his staff to do a study on ALL the monies from the state level that has been wasted on projects to revitalize cities in the form of convention centers and the debt that the cities are taking on. There they will see all the waste that could have been used for education, infrastructure and medical benefits.
If his administration is going to help states in need, I suggested that he pass by every state that subsidized projects like convention centers. Unless they become casinos, most will eventually go into foreclosures as the convention business is drying up.
If I get a response, I will pass it on.
