Now wait! I thought "giving tax breaks to the rich" was a bad thing. Could it be politicians say what sounds good to their voting side and not what is the truth? You mean they actually.......LIE?

Coleman is giving tax dollars to attract Progressive Insurance to consolidate jobs that are already here.

BTW Progressive Insurance was founded by Peter Lewis an avowed socialist, pop smoker and liberal democrat. How interesting he is connected to his company... Maybe a big campaign donation?

Or maybe Colemans buddy B Hussein said to do this.

Sure they'll increase jobs.

That's why Ohio has so little unemployment.

As we can plainly see prosperity trickles down from Republican plans

Actually, if you'd READ the article, it consolidates jobs in from the 'burbs to Columbus, which helps the city.

And is your unsupported smear of Progressive's founder your way of saying these are 'bad' jobs? Or are you just upset because a DEMOCRATIC Mayor is taking the lead?

Maybe you're just stupid. That'd be my guess....:)

This is giving tax breaks to those who actually CREATE jobs - companies. The rich don't generally create jobs, reTHUGlican mythology to the contrary.

And chimpanzees "MAY" fly out of my rear end...

I'm a little bored with the "mays", "mights", and "coulds" in the news lately.

Your consistent name calling of those people who have the audacity to not agree with you on the issues only serves to diminish any valid points you might make.

Your characterization of republicans as being thugs is no better than those ridiculous people who refer to the democrats as being dumb. Both yourself and those people who attack democrats are nothing but extremist haters.

Good luck leading your life by hate.

This is why the stimulus was a bad move. Companies expect to be paid for hiring, and they won't hire unless someone throws money at them.

It is the rich - through ownership or executive privilege - who give the yea or nay to hire. That's never going to change, unless you want a true socialist nation - and that's not why people from socialist nations immigrate here. You can name call all you want, but this country wasn't built on the theory of communes.

Your real issue is with greed, abuse and the love of money.

This all sounds great for bringing jobs to Ohio, but seriously does columbus city council or Ohio tax authority actually follow-up to make sure these companies hire people here in columbus and Ohio and not just bringing their employees with them. I bet not!

Oh noooo, what I am to do, big bad Columbus Dispatch message poster Harvey called me a name for pointing out the hate that he spews. What am I to do?

Hilarious...

Go ahead and hate on me all you want Harvey. Doesn't bother me at all because the attacks that you make on me and the name calling only serves to reinforce the notion that you are an extermist hater.

It's business which creates jobs, period. Your babbling about socialism is simply meaningless noise.

This program is nothing but corporate welfare.

It is not the role of government to choose winners and losers in the free marketplace.

Lower taxes for all will bring business.
