Forbes List of Richest People: Aren't You Glad We Gave Corporate Welfare to the Richest in South Florida? By Geniusofdespair

Micky Arison: Laughing all the way to the bank.

The Miami Heat Stadium deal was another stinker for Miami Dade County taxpayers. More corporate welfare for a billionaire. In the recently released Forbes List of the richest billionaires, Heat owner and Carnival Cruise Chairman Micky Arison was the highest ranking South Floridian on the list, tying for the 211 slot with $5.7 billion.

No more corporate welfare for billionaires. Tell the Dolphins owner Stephen Ross to go fly a kite. He should use his $4.4 billion to buy one. He is number 286 on Forbes list. Norman Braman is a light weight at $1.6 billion.

Micky Arison seems to get a pass 'cuz his team wins and he's compared to the others like Loria. However, we're still waiting for two things: 1) for the Heat to turn a sufficient "profit" to pay the County some funds, and 2) for that famous soccer field that was famously advertised in the pro-Arena advertising (remember that?). We're waiting, Micky!
