Not only that Chet, in my state, they're giving away tax breaks to businesses (corporate welfare) while it provides lots of $7.25 an hour jobs, the corporations are now asking that their property tax assessments be renegotiated because they think they're being asked to pay too much. They already bought land for next to nothing, now they want even more tax breaks after being located here for at least 5 years.
Isn't this how Detroit's auto market got into problems? They received tax breaks from the city, the city couldn't collect enough revenue to keep up with infrastructure, automakers left town, the tax base was lost, and the city crumbled.
Corporations will holler, if you don't give us the tax breaks we want, we'll just leave and go to South Carolina where those people down there will work for cheaper wages.
The top 01% usually always get what they want.
