The kept putting it on the ballot until people said yes. Then they repackaged it "so that it would be paid for by hotel guests and car rentals." So a few more numbnuts said "okay, well it's not my money!"
However, all the cities get that dumb idea so if you travel and rent a car you pay 80% in taxes.
Then we go to the stadium and get charged $7 for a pint of beer.
