Study: Tax breaks hurt, don't help

Full story: San Bernardino County Sun

Tax breaks aren't a good way to create jobs. That's the central point of a study released this week by the backers of Proposition 24, a state ballot initiative that would roll back three business tax breaks approved by the Legislature in 2008 and 2009.

Riiiiiiiight, because giving our money to the government to spend has been such a productive use of capital! How about attracting some businesses back to California by lowering business tax rates, instead of forcing businesses to other states with a more friendly business climate? It's to the point that the only well paying jobs in California are held by lawyers, politicians and the SEIU!

AO TEACHER, Government runs business; business runs government -- both are owned by the same people. Get real.

I agree. By the way, that is the definition of National Socialism!

Increased taxation never works. The focus at the state and the national level should be on growth. Until our manufacturing base and innovation is reborn the employment of the 15 million + idle workers will stall. Expanding the gov-mint will only lengthen the recovery period. We need to re-invent industry instead of penalizing and looting the existing businesses and wealth.
