Not the federal government. States are still free to tax businesses as they choose. Many states have tax-deferred economic development zones.

By the way, you are totally clueless about oil development in Alberta.

Your only tax money is that which the government takes from you.

Money that the government chooses not to take from others is not yours.

You have no right to the assets of others.

Pre-existing conditions are already covered if one stays with the same insurer.

Exploding costs and deteriorating service will sink Obamacare.

Well, I take that back. It most definitely IS about the attack on that embassy and four dead Americans. And why we still have no answers as to why it happened and who is responsible for it happening after repeated requests for help were denied.
The president continuing to lie about was just salt being rubbed into an open wound.
The coverup was just as aggregious as the attack.

It's astonishing that the President of the United State would even say that. It's more astonishing most of his followers believe him.
Let's see what he really said shall we Carol?
"Look, if you've been successful, you didn't get there on your own," he said. "You didn't get there on your own. I'm always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something -- there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there.
"If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges.
"If you've got a business -- you didn't build that," he continued. "Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didn't get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the internet. The point is, is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together. There are some things, just like fighting fires, we don't do on our own."

It was about education and infrastructure stupid, without which the most savvy business person couldn't be successful.

Fox grabbed this and beat it up day in day out. Yet it was in the same context as the Kennedy speech. "Ask not what my country can do for me, but what i can do for my country" These ringers are so into self and greed they can't see past their own stupidity on the power of collective infrastructure giving them those opportunities to succeed. Not once being thankful for that but a compulsion to complain that someone else might get something as a handout because they weren't as successful. This is what those extremists use for propaganda to commit terrorist acts against the West. Not because of benevolence but because of greed.

No, but I worked in a special ed classroom and later on was lead staff and house manager for residences for both mentally ill and developementally delayed adults. I know a lot about both conditions.

If you give a tax break for an industry, then you need to either cut spending or make up the revenue.

We all know they never cut spending when they issue these breaks.

So do they raise revenues else where? If they raise income or property tax or sales tax then we pay for the tax break.

If they do not raise revenues to make up the difference & do not cut spending, then the amount of that break is added to the debt,for which we are all responsible.

So, t s not a question of of rights o assets. Its a question of who makes up for that loss of revenue?

I built my company ,the only thing government did was slow down the process and keep me from expanding. As for greed ,what the hell have you done to earn one dime from me. You call me wanting to keep what I have worked for greed, I call you taking what I have worked for theft.

"real dumb"
One more time you prove yourself to be a liar. I am not and was not a fan of former president Bush particularly, when it comes to the economy He was not a conservative, he was and is a liberal. I have said the president nobama inherited economic problems. The problem with failure president nobama is that he has not espoused any solutions. The bad situation he inherited he has made worse. Why working folks, not losers like you accept him and vote for him is difficult to understand. Fewer are working, the average income of those working is declining and more rely on food stamps to feed their families.
Keep lying, that is what you do best. Other posters point out your lies on a regular basis like 50 times a day on average.

You had just said that Bush was just one man did not cause the mess all by himself.

Yet you blame Obama everyday for the effects of the Bush recession.

No lying, dancing squirming & denials from you can change that fact.

Above, you blame Obama for a slow recovery (expected from the worst recession in 80 years).. So where is you just one man" argument for Obama like you gave to Bush.

You are a liar. You support Bush & try to lay blame for his failures onto others.

And really, the right whiner ploy of declaring Bush a liberal or a Democrat as a way to hide from your party's failures is pathetic.
