I can think of no better way to bankrupt that state than your post.
You sound like Pelosi
You make a complex subject sound simple. You’re a free market guy. So am I, to a point.
Does the federal government spend our money strictly on the free market in your perfect world? What would that do/have done to our military?
Does the state government spend our money, or attract new money by cutting deals for companies that existing businesses don’t have?
Does the local city or county government have any limits to what it does as far as granting TIFs and other incentives for Home Depot (or anyone) who promises jobs against an uneven playing field with local mom-and-pop hardware stores?
Or are all the above “free market players” like you and I? That was the gist of the article.
You sound like a NAFTA supporter. I hear the giant sucking sound and smell the Mexican diesel. Please enlighten me, patriot.
