Florida Marlins Stadium
With 83% of those responding NO to the question: Will the new baseball stadium benefit Miami Dade County? — you might think the elected officials would think twice about their decision or at least conduct their own scientific poll.

They don't really care what we think. And besides, it's too late anyway. I'm sure they're confident that we will forget.
This is an utter and complete breakdown in the representative democracy system. The Commissioners that allowed this to happen should be completely ashamed of their actions. Everybody knows that the majority of the taxpayers of Miami-Dade County were against the taxpayer giveaway. How could our Commissioners, in good conscience, ignore what was so clear to most of us? At the end of the day, we should all be ashamed that the people we elected into office can betray their constituents and continue to get re-elected.
I agree last poster. I couldn't have said it better! I feel as though I am powerless. It is like I am watching a train wreck.
