    Republicans and the "free" market

    So you republicans like to talk for days about how great the free market is, but please explain to me how this shit is a free market: https://www.google.com/amp/www.chica...story,amp.html

    This goes back to my statement about republicans stacking the deck in the so called "free" market.

    Oh and cue irony since it's not even an American company.

    I guess you missed the part about it being a bipartisan bill.

      Bipartisan in that a few democrats supported it, the bill passed 64-31. With only 2 republicans voting against it. It was mostly a republican bill.

      So again my question is why are republicans in mass behind this bill?? It's state sanctioning with tax dollars to give one foreign company an unfair advantage in the "free" market.

          Exactly.

          Both parties do this, fyi.

          Living in Austin we see this constantly. And Austin is very liberal and run by Ds.

          High tech companies would get massive incentive packages to open wafer fabs (where silicon chips are made) all throughout the 1990s. I, and many friends, worked in places that got incentives.

          Sadly, it's how business is done all too often. I've even seen companies play cities off each other to get more incentives, kinda like NFL owners looking for the sweetest stadium deals.

          Not defending it, but it does create jobs and thus revenue on the back end. Taxpayers can only hope they get more on the back end than what they gave away as incentives.

              "Free market" ? Fella, you are way behind the times...

              Just wait until the government intervenes in the economy to REALLY combat AGW, then we will see just how unfree markets are and have been for a long time.

              Sounds like a good deal for Wisconsin to me, bringing jobs to the USA.

                Happens all the time. Any reason why the Dims were against it ?

                  Right, but we already know that liberals are socialists. The republicans constantly talk about how they're capitalists and hold to the free market. This isn't what they demonstrate with bills like this.

                    Probably because they don't enjoy the idea of giving away 3 billion in tax dollars to inflate the accounts of a few billionaires.

                      Italy's seasonally adjusted jobless rate rose slightly to 11.3 percent in July 2017 from an upwardly revised 11.2 percent in June and above market expectations of 11.1 percent. The number of unemployed persons increased by 61 thousand from the previous month and employment went up by 59 thousand.

                      There were 2.950 million unemployed people, 61 thousand more than in the previous month. Meantime, employment also rose by 59 thousand to 23.063 million and those detached from the labour force declined by 115 thousand to 13.317 million.

                      Youth unemployment rate, measuring job-seekers between 15 and 24 years old, went up to 35.5 percent from a revised 35.2 percent in June.

                      Italy's overall employment rate, on of the lowest in the Euro Area, edeged up to 58 percent in July from 57.9 percent in June.

                        None of this is addressing my original question. Why are the free market republicans supporting this??

                            If it weren't for "incentives", and an not-so-free market, Mexico would have a lot more industrial/manufacturing plants than it already has, which is too many.
