The Cuyahoga County Committee of the Whole decided to quickly move the Quicken Loan corporate welfare package out of committee and fast track towards a vote on the 28th. Before even considering what upcoming State Budget Cuts and what proposed Federal Budget Cuts might do to the County and City of Cleveland's finances.
However, the deal cannot be made unless Cleveland City Council approves their end of it — $88 million in taxpayer money. Your money.
Do we have a chance to stop it here? Yes! Show up and make your voice heard! No corporate welfare on the backs of Cleveland taxpayers!
Remember, they are all up for re-election this year! And as the narrow 9-7 vote on the Dirt Bike scam indicated, there may be some dissension in the ranks.
Although the bill is only being introduced at this meeting a large «We Will Remember in November» presence is a good start to making them think twice.
