Spending money on business? You mean as in the case of GM and Chrysler? I agree that it is completely wrong. There is no vehicle shortage in the US and no threat of there being one.Why do you think? They spend a lot more money on business than they do people on welfare. I'm sure if you think about it you can come up with a reason.
Certainly any company, and individual, will leave if their are better opportunities elsewhere. Many states and countries compete for companies in order to have more jobs for their citizens. There is nothing unusual about that. If the US government is not a good place to do business, and in the past it was among the best, then businesses will do what they are doing. Leave It is not difficult to figure out.Nope. I'm suggesting you can't bibe them enough to keep them. In places where taxes have been eliminated altogether, they still left. You have to consider working for next to nothing, foregoing health care benefits, and becoming as cheap as where they are going. Appeasing them with mere taxes won't be enough.
Of course not. That runs contrary to the idea of free enterprise. As the US has been turning its back on the free enterprise system, national debts and unemployment have increased, and they'll continue to do so.But I sure as hell wouldn't give them any more money either.It is not wise for the government to give money to businesses. The opportunity for corruption and incompetence and cronyism should be abundantly clear.
There is a lot of support, from both parties. No me mind you, but there is support. The auto industry once took a money, in the millions I think, for a "jobs program." We gave the money, they fired folks, and made huge profits. Them folding would have been painful, and our leaders would have been blamed, wrongly so, but business won't do us any damned favors in return. And some, largely conservative, will make excuses for them while demonizing the individual who might need some help. It is all quite illogical.
