Subsidies.

Do we need them?


I say no, why should we give industrys money just to keep them afloat?

Not to mention its a waste of tax dollars, and can certainly be seen as a way of lining a politicians pocket book.

What if your competition subsidizes its industry?

Do you know what the maximum tax is on European corporations versus U.S. companies?

Isn't tax protection a subsidy? Do we allow them to compete unfairly?

Doesn't Europe run 75% tax rate ?


subsidies by competition? if you mean striking a business deal, thats perfectly normal, what I'm talking about is the gov taking our tax dollars and pumping businesses full of money that shouldn't have the money or shouldn't a business anymore.

yes, evading taxes is a subsidy.

No, Europe doesn't have 1 75% tax rate. And their corporations pay less than half of what ours pay.
