    Once again you fail to address the corporate welfare.

    How did donkeyface bring Trump and the GOP into the war between Leftie owned and run Amazon vs radical Leftists bullying a corporation in the state of NY that is governed by uber liberals again?

    It has been covered many times, and every time you were wrong. You're sticking to your opinion like a fly to the shit.

    Without Amazon HQ deal, there are no jobs, no investment, no taxes to the city from business or payroll taxes. Zero. You got that, right?

    With Amazon HQ deal, Amazon build the HQ, they pay for the HQ. What infrastructure you're talking about? Making an intersection to enter Amazon parking lot? Everything behind that point is at the cost of Amazon.

    With Amazon deal, NY would still collect taxes, just for certain period of time (lets say 10 years) it would be reduced. So Instead of collecting $10B, they would give them tax incentive and collect $7B. There is no money out of taxpayers pockets. After 10 years, Amazon would pay full tax. Payroll taxes from 25K people are always there.

    Tell me, how much money taxpayers would have to pay out of their pockets to get Amazon HQ in New York?

    And to answer your question from the beginning of the post. If I have no income, I got nothing in my family budget. Zero. You got that, right? Tell me, how much money is in your family budget if you have no income?

    Someone offers me a job, but will start matching my 401k after two years, whatever I make from that job brings to my family budget ore than I have without a job. Plus, after two years, I got extra into my 401k.

    Good, this garbage of giving big business big tax breaks or big discounts on land etc should stop.

    I'm glad to see Amazon won't be getting any special treatment.

    If a company wants to expand and build then they should do it the right way, without any special treatment from the government.

    The kicker in that is Foxconn didn't build and create all those jobs they got for all that corporate welfare trump and walker gave them.

    They got to keep all that money but didn't create the jobs.
