Somehow, the NFL got itself declared a non-profit corp.! They don't pay taxes AND they get government subsidies!
- They make $10 BILLION dollars a year AND PAY NO TAXES ON IT!
- They take another BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR in government assistance!
What a disgusting mockery! A mockery of real non-profit companies! A mockery of people who really need government help!
We, the tax payers, need the league to pay their fair share of taxes AND put that billion dollars a year in assistance back into our economy!
If you're not disgusted by this, that's part of this whole wrong situation. If you want to help get this travesty undone so the taxes and subsidy goes into our economy, check out SackNFLTaxBreaks.org. This is not some liberal leftist attack on the upper class. One of the founders is Ryan Rudominer, a proud shareholder of the Green Bay Packers. That's right: an NFL shareholder agrees the league needs to be a giving part of this country like any successful company.
The news and the government are starting to take notice and speaking against this. But a lot of people still don't know it's going on or protecting the league.
Just let them know you want that billion going to real needs and the taxes we'd get to go into the country's infrastructure.
All it takes is you signing an online petition. 30 seconds to help yourself and everyone else. The NFL will still be a hugely successful organization with all of its revenue avenues still bringing in the profits. No one is saying that is wrong. I'm saying that a successful company that is a profit organization should pay taxes like all other companies and not get government assistance.
Please sign the petition. You'll see my name there.
