    Money, like water, flows where it flows for very sound and very predictable reasons.

    If it's flowing out of instead of into the country, there are very sound and predictable reasons why this is happening.

    If there is a desire to have it flow to here instead of there, create the reasons for it to do so.

    This is not very difficult to figure out.

    Yes, I probably pay more in taxes each year than you make.
    Ergo, you support this govt.....duh.
    As for your state being a nightmare, maybe "your" president ought to defend the borders.
    Let see....Texas has more illegals...yet is doing well.....ergo...illegals are not the problem.

    If we just had large petro deposits....gee wiz.

    The ideas from the article said that the Democrats want to punish business for moving abroad.

    We know from the past that they want to punish business for staying here, hiring employees, selling goods, making profits or just existing.

    Nothing new here. Move along.

    You just said you had no problem with tax incentives, ie, picking winners and losers....but previously you argued govt should NOT pick winners and losers.....ergo, you are contradicting yourself.

    Arizona has 6 million people and TX has 27 million, TX is more than double the size of Arizona and that is what you want to ignore. Your problems are indeed the results of illegals, there is more room here and much of the growth is well away from the border.

    You really must be in that 40% who still supports Obama in spite of the economic results.

    I think you need to read what I wrote one more time with an eye for trying to comprehend what I'm actually saying.

    This bill gives tax breaks to companies INSHORING (opposite of offshoring). It gave tax breaks and incentives to companies closing foreign facilities and moving them back to the US. Now isn't that exactly the kind of thing the pinko left has been bitching about? Giving corporations "welfare"? Providing tax abatements and special deductions? Shouldn't you be glad that's not going to happen?
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    Do you know what a tax incentive is? it is businesses keeping more of what they earn. You seem to have a problem with that

    California has huge shale reserves.

    But their economy sucks and that States home to 1/3 of America's welfare recipients even though they only account for 1/8 of the Nation's population.

    So its not the existence of Oil is it ?

    No, its the policies that allow that oil to be accessed.

    And tax incentives were part of this bill, so liberals should be quite happy that it was killed. Why should we give tax incentives for companies to relocate back to the US to use our precious infrastructure? Damned if you do and damned if you don't with the libs.

    It's interesting to imagine that you are an expert on AZ economics, but the issue here is not one of too many workers (or illegals), it is one of lack of job creation, primarily, like CA, driven by a massive loss of household wealth....along with poor education (low funding) and low state investment. We have LOTS of open space......but laughably, that is not a driver of economics.

    You really must be in that 40% who still supports Obama in spite of the economic results.
    You still need any and all forms of baiting to distract from your failed arguments.

    This bill has an increase in the deficit (which is what you want, less revenue). What you lose sight of is that "net", this would cause more US jobs and ultimately decrease the deficit.
