American citizens seemingly need to get this realization through their heads:
In the 21st Century- MOST businesses will seek taxpayer-financed corporate welfare to build in YOUR city.
I mean- WHY- if I'm a wealthy owner of a corporation- should I spend MY or OUR money to build a new facility when America's politicians are so willing to finance my plans on the backs of taxpayers?
So goes the talk of Independence pollys on a "new" east Indy business park- and the ONLY indication in this EXAMINER feel-good story about taxpayer subsidies is in this paragraph in the story:
"Clayco executives stressed that this is a public-private partnership and said the city has to continue to play an active role – possibly with city money – though Independence City Manager Robert Heacock said it’s too soon to know if financial involvement will be needed or what that would look like."
Meanwhile- these SAME Independence pollys want you residents to increase YOUR sales tax for more police and fire protection.
You get what you (don't) vote for....
