Missouri House and Senate Approve Corporate Welfare for The Ford Motor Company


B
lackmail?


Extortion?

Just wondering aloud what methods corporate America uses on politicians to grant them tax relief when middle and lower-income Americans can't even get unemployment extensions- let alone ANY tax relief that's not diluted/offset by raises in other taxes and fees.

At any rate- the taxpayer welfare for Ford legislation finally has made it's way to Governor Nixon's desk to be signed.
