Is it time to pull out the T.A.R.P. on Citi Field? The government has issued Citigroup $45 billion in federal bailout funds from the Troubled Assets Relief Program. So, should Citigroup still be allowed to spend $400 million for the naming rights of the Mets new baseball stadium? Voters overwhelmingly say, “No way!” 82% of registered voters in the Big Apple oppose the corporate sponsorship while just 13% say Citigroup should proceed as planned. 5% are unsure.

    If this is true, then it’s really good that you actually said it. On the other hand, I’m sure other people should be hearing about it.
