On Friday's show of "Something's Off With Andrew Heaton," host Andrew Heaton and his guest, Reason's Eric Boehm, discussed football, stadium subsidies, and politicians.

In this clip, Heaton discussed Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, the billionaire longtime Democrat who recently announced a possible bid for president in 2020.

Soon after his announcement, Schultz was attacked by the mainstream media for saying the Democratic Party no longer represents his values, and that he may run as an independent. Heaton noted the failure of the Democrats for the way they punish Americans when they reach financial success in business.

However, the financial benefits of these teams often do not outweigh the tax burdens placed on their communities.
