So, by the tone of your post, can I assume that you don't like businesses? That must mean that you grow all your own food, including saving back all your own seed. You must also have a flock of sheep and a field of cotton somewhere to make all your own clothes. And you have built a wind mill from scratch to power your house that you built yourself from trees you cut down with the axe you manufactured in your shop, right? You also evidently rob used oil from restaurant dumpsters to make your own diesel fuel to run the vehicle you built out of spare parts. Man, I wish I had that much energy.

Your assumption is wrong. I like businesses fine. I do not like giving taxpayer money to businesses.

And I don't like giving taxpayer money to people who refuse to work, but it still happens.

Also, please identify the people who refuse to work.

By the way, the business community gets than anyone else.

My point is that, unlike giving away money to the leaches of this country, government programs for businesses create jobs and help the economy. And if you don't see anyone living on the dole, you're completely blind. I personally know several just in my community that could be doing some sort of work but are drawing disability income. A couple of them are in better shape than me and one could do whatever she wanted if she'd get off her fat butt and lose a hundred pounds. Yes, there ae many who need government assistance, but there are also many who just need their butts kicked.

This may very well cause an economic boom to the areas that give up the tax revenue. There will be jobs associated with the pipeline. The price of fuel could very well be reduced in the area.

I do not support throwing away money . This looks more like an investment.

When the pipeline comes through it may create some jobs. However, it goes through North & South Dakota and Nebraska first. So I believe most of the construction jobs will be already taken. After it is built there will be very few pipeline jobs. The oil is going to go right through Kansas to the gulf cost. It will be refined there and shipped whereever. I doubt it will reduce the price of gas. Typical business break. They get the break and the government and people gets little or nothing.

How does a business moving from Missouri to Kansas help Kansas when it (the business) gets to keep 95% of the Kansas state taxes it collects from its employees??? This is among other benefits. It does not create any jobs just moving. OPEN YOUR EYES. You see a few people get a few thousand $ when business breaks give millions.

Those employees in the community boost the local economy. They buy food, clothing, homes, autos. They pay sales taxes, property taxes, excise taxes, income taxes, taxes, taxes, taxes.

The cpompany was moving is offices across the state line. I doubt any employees will be moving their homes. So Kansas gave a company $47 million dollars so they could get the employees to buy a few lunches and do some shoping. I doubt it. Wise up. Deals like this go on all the time.

So if business paid zero tax, everyone would be working and everything would be fine, right?

The way you guys talk, if you lowered everyone's tax to zero, the income of the goverment should be infinite, because of all those jobs created. At some point "trickle down" becomes a perpetual motion machine.

They don't have to go to zero. When they are low enough the vast majority of people don't find them too high you will maximize government revenues.

But at no point would they go so low that we couldn't afford a trillion dollar military. Anyway, I distrust anything copied out of a little red book covered in sheep skin.

Lowering taxes has never created jobs or collected more tax revenue. Check the figures

Lowering tax rates increases tax revenue. It spurs economic growth every time it is tried. Maybe you should check what happened when Pres Kennedy reduced tax rates.
