Varney reminded the entire FOX and Friends nation that the NFL stadium has collected $1 billion in federal subsidies.

Stuart Varney said:
“There’s $1.1 billion in direct subsidies from taxpayers to the NFL… Taxpayer subsidies go to the building of stadiums. There have been 20 new NFL stadiums since 1997. All of them have received a degree of taxpayer subsidies.”
American public has spent $7 billion to build and renovate NFL stadiums over the last 20 years. The US taxpayer often pays 46 percent of the cost to build these projects.
The NFL doesn’t respect us. Why should we respect them?
