Should D.C. Help Finance a Soccer Stadium?

D.C. United officials are pushing for $225 million in public money for a new stadium, an amount that is $75 million more than the amount that a coalition of D.C. Council members are drafting legislation to authorize.

At least there is some honesty here in the use of the word 'help' to fund the Stadium.In the same way the city 'helped' to fund Verizon Center. .

Fisher seems to believe it's a 100% city funded deal, from his rantings.

It would help if TWP can dig around to determine what hte $150mil, or $225mil is really for.

Folks are spouting off that it's for the stadium itself, or it's for infrastructure, or it's for cleanup.

It's hard to really tell if the District should put up the money if no one really knows what it's for.
