    No. They should have the same tax rates for every business in the state. Giving big out of town companies a sweetheart deal is just fucking the locals.

    I won't argue about what 'true' conservatism is, but I don't think government should be using taxes rates to help/harm anyone. They should use the taxation power to fund government, not manipulate society.

    I realize this is SOP for both Democrats and Republicans, but they are both wrong.

    They don’t want to. Every politician now gets to claim they created jobs. You are really blind to the game?

    Good conservatives want to lower taxes for all business, not pick and choose who gets special treatment. That is corporatism.

    Government is then picking winners and losers. That is more government influence.

    Some people want to mandate it though, which isn't the best kind of business. It's overbearing government.

    Bernie Sanders Asks Nation To Please Stop Mailing Him Books On Economics

    ". . . “I’ve got 1,200 copies of Human Action, 1,500 copies of Basic Economics, and 4,700 copies of Economics in One Lesson,” the angered senator said. “I’m drowning here.” Sanders also showed the late-night host a small mountain of children’s books on the subject of economics from the easy-to-read Tuttle Twins series, sent to him from Americans who assumed he had somehow missed classroom discussions on the value of a dollar and supply and demand while in elementary school.


    Sanders further confirmed he still hasn’t read a single one of the books, stating that they look like they’re “full of harsh facts” and that he prefers a more emotion-based approach to economics. He added that he’s “a little peeved” that our nation has so many choices for books on basic economics on the market. “Do we really need that many?”. . . . "
