So I see Comcast is going ahead and building a new tower which will create hundreds of construction jobs and millions in recurring revenue through city wage taxes. All with the help of a tax abatement, no doubt. I wonder if the PFT is going to try to stop the job creation because of the abatement. Now would be the time to do it. Not after the tower is built. Where's Gym?

The Four Seasons will be moving into this building and closing its present site. It will have 200 rooms compared to its current 357 rooms. Rooms in the new hotel will be $500 per night. Not only will Comcast get a tax abatement, Comcast is getting $30 million from the state for this project. No mention is made if this has some connection to David Cohen endorsing Corbett or a second term. They just keep finding new ways to spend our money. Your tax dollars at work!

"Taxpayer" doesn't mind to give his money to the rich. He only hates the middle class and the poor.
