PHOENIX MAYOR PHIL GORDON GETS IT

Mayor Phil Gordon's views on corporate tax subsidies shows that he certainly gets it. Hailed as one of the 100 to watch by the New Democrats Network, Gordon's sensible approach to economic development is in line with the latest jurisprudence on tax subsidies as a violation of the Commerce Clause. Not only are the tax bribes that have become so commonplace in the competition for increasingly scarce jobs harmful to taxpayers, but also to the communities that surrender to socialized corporate bribery.

The campaign didn't work too well for Nancy Regan, but at the risk of sounding simplistic, governments need to "Just Say No" to socialized bribery and make their cities and towns compete on the basis of the real factors of production which attract and grow economies.

I like this mayor too. I used your post on my blog Daily Eats in which I wrote about Mayor Phil Gordon's state of the city address. Hope that's cool with you.
