    Little start ups do not bring thousands of jobs to a locality. There are likely dozens of breaks to the little guys anyway. There are always enterprise zones.

    Amazon is going to do that anyway . You are rewarding them for nothing. They ain’t building a new HQ out of the goodness of their black hearts .

    No, its the definition of governments competing. Capitalism is about private owners competing. When the government starts orchestrating things, that's socialism.

    This is why we're flailing headlong into socialism. You dimwits don't even see it coming - you're even cheering it on.

    That's not what they're saying. They're saying they'll give one business a break if that business does what the state wants. The rest of the businesses in the state have to pay their taxes as usual.
