More Payoffs for Jobs

Remington Arms is getting about $1.5 million for an expansion that may create 100 jobs, i.e. bring 100 people from another plant to Ilion. If Remington Arms is thriving and willing to put about $10 million into it themselves, what exactly is the point of giving away taxpayer money?

Apparently, New York gives money to failing businesses that need to be propped up, successful businesses that NY wants to stay in the area, and businesses that lose money and employees. I have two words for the legislature: Tax Relief. The other words are : for everyone.

    Before i left rome in'80 they used to give tax breaks to companies to come to rome, and at the end of the break-they left town. business taxes there are just too high. no wonder people left in droves...and then came the filth.
