Economics Well we have such cooperation with the sports Pittsburgh Fear the Scowl shirt teams that we will keep increasing our deficits when we cannot afford them (Anyone remember that Pittsburgh is in Act 47, equivalent to a form of bankruptcy?) by building and improving stadiums and shying away from any form of tax regarding ticket purchases etc. (Cause it’s ok for the poor man to not have their street plowed but not ok if they can’t even afford a Steelers ticket). In fact, the will of the people was usurped to help build our deficits thanks to a lobbying firm hired by the Stealers (misspelling intended) and our State government. And why did we have to pay for it? Because our industries wouldn’t or because the teams think they deserved it. Columbus has a hockey stadium, no public money. And look where the SF Giants play. At least the Pens worked a deal out for their place. Oh but now are trying to back out of their community improvement deal.

Oh and let us get to the Police and Firefighters Unions. Pittsburgh Fear the Scowl shirt These are the folks who are supposed to protect us, yet have rigged their pension system to take us even further down the rabbit hole of debt. We’re one of the few entities with pensions left where your payout is determined by the total earnings of your last 5 years, not your base salary. So they rig the schedules to stack over time to the point where the currently serving mayor’s salary is less than more than 5 of current retirees annual payouts. And any effort to change this is met with threats of a strike.
