    Hey, I have an idea. Why don't we cut education funding so we have more taxpayer money to lure industry to our state?

    Or, how about we use taxpayer money to provide educated and skilled workers to attract industry? Nah, that's a socialistic pipe dream isn't it?

    LOL! 30 years and you are still waiting on your trickle? There is no benefit, except to further build the offshore savings of the wealthy. One only has to look at the last 3 decades to see that since Reaganomics, our economy has declined and our debt has increased.

    No, you didn't explain mandatory unions that are in Wisconsin and unions forcing people to pay dues out of taxpayer funded wages. Why do you support someone else telling union employees how to spend their money. Forced unions is something that is indefensible.

    Sorry, but tax subsidies aren't funded by the taxpayers, they are a reduction in taxes that businesses earn. Where did you go to school? You really don't understand taxes at all.

    I understand what tax-payer subsidies are. That's not the point. Where did you go to school? You really are good at deflecting. You're also one of the most hypocritical righties that I've ever had the misfortune of dealing with. But, hey, whatever. If it helps you get to sleep at night by talking out of both sides of your mouth and ignoring evidence that points out your hypocrisy, then sleep well, I guess.

    You do now that Conservative informed you, because you did make a mistake in saying:

    Just sayin'.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    If you know what tax subsidies are then you sure haven't shown it. It isn't taxpayer funded, it is a taxpayer keeping more of what they earned by doing certain things required by the govt. No tax subsidy is an expense to the govt. which has been explained to you over and over. Still it doesn't sink in.
