Leave it to the sore-loser Democrats to piss on this deal.
Let’s have a look at a different one, out here in Washington State where I live. Three years ago, Boeing extracted $8.7 billion — that’s right, billion — worth of tax breaks from the state government. Boeing has 78,000 workers here, which means the deal is worth roughly $4,000 per year per job. For 27 years.
What did Boeing give in return? Nothing. No claw back. No employment commitment.
Ah, but there’s a difference! Washington State has a Democratic governor, so Think Progress is silent. You see, the “progressives” have no principles, only talking points: Republican Bad, Democrat Good.
And then you wonder why a complete slug like Donald Trump got elected? Did it ever occur to any of you or your kind that tens of millions of people are sick to death of your smugness, your arrogance, and your lack of integrity or standards of any kind?
Nope, because you are “progressives.” You only talk to yourselves, listen to yourselves, and praise yourselves. See you in 2018 and 2020.
