And somehow, magically, none of those people getting millions in tax breaks don't have to worry about that, do they?
They still aren't hiring, even though they're getting bigger tax breaks. They've had bigger tax breaks since 2001, and our unemployment rate has still gone up. That's ten years; technology hasn't increased so much that it accounts for all of or even a majority of those lost jobs. Hell, corporations got tax breaks from last month to this month, but the unemployment rate didn't drop, did it? Even in the short term, tax breaks have never been shown to increase the rate in corporations hiring.
In fact, the unemployment rate saw a steady decline during the Clinton administration, and he raised
taxes. He was also in power during the surge of internet availability, arguably the biggest technological development of all time
, but that didn't make people lose jobs, did it?
In any case, the things happening in Wisconsin have nothing to do with taxes for corporations. The governor spent money on that long before these protests began. This isn't an either-or situation. He didn't trade one for the other; he simply wants to give money to his rich friends and get rid of the unions that are likely to oppose him in the future.
