Good for them. Maybe they can afford to buy the Joplin Airport - I'd say $15 million plus the land value would be a very fair price. Since they are about the only people who need jet service for their private fleet, the Joplin airport with it's new $15m terminal, regular runway extensions, and expensive employees, it amounts to the taxpayers giving a profitable company welfare while cutting medical support for poor children.
