The Movie industry has an unlimited potential to bring millions of dollars and hundreds of jobs into this state and Deval goes and messes with it. He obviously hasn't got a clue. Nor does he have the state's best interests in mind.

This is a tough one. The jobs are short lived and the tax breaks are phenomenal. I wonder how much it costs in commerce to film a movie in this state. Major roads are closed, extra security is provided by the cities hosting the project. I'm not convinced it's a good deal for the state, it isn't a good deal for the taxpayers and the businesses on those closed streets.
