Earlier this month I went through Gov. Cooper’s press releases going back to May, showing him going back and forth between decrying corporate tax cuts and announcing giving millions of dollars to corporations.
I might as well update it with today’s announcement, dutifully reported by media as if they haven’t bought hook, line, sinker, and pole the governor’s phony framing of the issue as a “choice” between corporate giveaways or teacher pay. So what’s new? I mean, what’s most recent?
- Nov. 8: complained about corporate tax cuts
- Nov. 12 announced $1.7 million to Pamlico Yachtworks
- Nov. 19: announced $3.4 million to Well Dot, Inc.
Confused? See this discussion of the four policy combinations on corporate taxation and welfare — and which combo Cooper chooses and why.
