Of course the Pro Wally World & Pro Corporate run Government Folks in P&N are all for this.
Of course myopic folks like yourself fail to see that money spent on infrastructure and promoting trade results in higher revenues and MORE than pays for itself.
If widening this street will result in higher tax revenues for the government, then the benefits to Walmart would have to be several times more than what this costs. So why does Walmart need the government to pay for it? I'm not against the government spending money on development, i.e. a convention center that brings outsiders (and their money) to local hotels and businesses. But it sounds like this benefits ONE company. If the local government wants to give in to Walmart's blackmail and give them money, go for it. But I don't want MY money subsidizing Walmart.
