Expect a myriad of arguments along the lines of:
"but that could pay for x hospital beds" as if it were an either/or situation
"it's taxpayer's money" as if only taxpayers should be able to dictate how public funds are spent (remember, not everyone is a taxpayer, and people pay vastly differing amounts).
"we're subsidising private companies" as if sane people would expect private companies to invest in something that won't see them make a return on that investment.
Let's face it - if the individual got to decide where money was spent, it would only be spent putting public services outside their own front door. A core part of any governing body is to ensure the needs of the minority are met in the face of the feelings of the majority.
