  •  Ala wanted to let companies steal worker taxes (0+ / 0-)

    We actually had a legislative proposal to allow companies to KEEP the taxes withheld from workers' paychecks! It wasn't even a disguised subsidy, it was a straight-up tax giveaway. So these companies would be able to take money from their employees, put it toward corporate profits, and a state whose taxes are already much too low would get even less money.

    Of course, we are always more than willing to let those companies give "grants" to nonprofits, or buy advertising space on public property, but it never equals the tax revenue they should be paying. Our physical and civic infrastructure continues to deteriorate.
