Yeah, tell me about it. I'm not one of these people who *****es about taxes like a small child being asked to share his toys. I'd gladly pay higher taxes.

Really, I wouldn't be burning to go to those Olympics if they wind up in Japan or Turkey (the host will be decided later this year). And Spain's Olympic committee have said that this bid will be the last they make for the foreseeable future. They (Madrid) were the last city eliminated before Rio de Janiero got the 2016 Games.
