Reid Reacts to NFL Ending Tax-Exempt Status
Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid on Tuesday said the ending of the NFL’s tax exempt status shows how much money the league is making, saying the NFL has bigger issues to handle.
“That tax break that they got is $100 million. They’re treating that as if it’s nothing, because they have such problems with other issues, not the least of which is kowtowing to the owners, especially one that has a team here in Washington,” Reid said. “… We know that they have an ongoing crisis with the head injuries, so the National Football League has a lot more problems than the subsidy that they get from taxpayers.”
