I don't know why hypocrisy bothers me...but it does. This week, I have been seeing a lot of folks on facebook going off about Big Business Subsidies, and of course, they are all the Republicans fault.
Except when it is the Democratic Governor of Washington calling a special session of the State Legislature to get a series of bills passed that will save Boeing $8 billion in an effort to convince Boeing to open a new factory in the south Puget Sound area.
You know...I really don't have a problem the idea itself. I'm assuming that someone has done the math and figured out that even though they are saving Boeing $8 billion, the state expects that they can make MORE than $8 billion in increased excise taxes and property taxes.
Mmm...that word...assuming. Guess I'd rather say 'assuming' than 'hoping'...using the first one means I expect to be disappointed.
