More liars, hypocrites
Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee.
Tennessee offered huge tax incentives (read: subsidies) to foreign automaker, Volkswagon.
What did it do for the state's economy and its residents?
His state ranks 39th in the nation in per capita income, but 13th in the nation when it comes to receiving money from the Federal Government!
I watched him this morning on CNBC, where he gave such a phony display of dissapointment that they "couldn't reach a deal." It was sickening. He deserves and Oscar for that performance.
