Incentivize more business

  • Follow Letters

The president, during his campaign for re-election, made many promises to those of us who voted for him. I now feel that he should establish a dialogue and partnership with local leaders in all 50 states to fulfill his promises made during his re-election bid.

I would like to see him put teams together in every state, whose objectives would be to get state legislators to agree to plans such as offering tax incentives to companies that will locate businesses in their states – incentives such as land donated with no taxes to be paid during their first five years in business. The end result would lead to jobs and community improvement, not to mention small businesses popping up all over those areas.

Mr. President, the ball’s in your court.

Whoa....wait a minute

Whoa....wait a minute Joseph......"to get state legislators to agree to plans such as offering tax incentives to companies that will locate businesses in their states".

You want STATES to offer companies tax incentives while OBAMA makes them pay another $1.6 trillion in ADDITIONAL taxes at the FEDERAL level? So you want STATE taxpayers to cut their own throats to lure businesses while OBAMA is is doing everything possible to drive them out of the country to China and Mexico?

Anyone who voted for Obama should keep pretty quiet on the subject of incentivizing companies. It's hard to convince them to come to your state when Obama is driving them clean out of the country with taxes and regulations. So shhh Joseph. Listen to me and pay attention......"tax the rich", "more financial regulations", "more environmental regulations", "50 people and 30 hours per week full health insurance", "union card check". Those are YOUR incentives to business. Apparently you were not concerned with incentives for companies 3 weeks ago if you voted for Obama.
