  •  LePage is also lying if he says Texas lures (7+ / 0-)

    companies without the use of economic incentives.

    The Texas Enterprise Fund (TEF) alone has given away $500MM in the last ten years, far more than most states.

    And that does not include other grants from the Texas Emerging Technology Fund (TETF) and other pots of state money, 'workforce development' programs, and state and local tax 'incentives.'

    And yes, Texas has also had the phony tax cuts that only increase fees of all kinds and local property taxes.

    These broken people won't stop, they will have to be stopped.  I hope and expect the worm will be turning shortly.

    •  I'm with you in that hope. (3+ / 0-)

      You're absolutely right, they won't stop until we make them.

      Appreciate the information on what is going on in Texas.

      It's a huge trickle up of tax dollars to the well connected few, isn't it, while we get the real drip, drip, drip in a drought trickle down.

      They're robbing our states blind.
