Always government handouts

Texans for Public Justice have put together a really good report on government subsidies for WalMart here in Texas that I highly recommend. Stories like this constitute another reason why I tend not to get too bent out of shape over things like the driving deputies. That story is about a couple thousand dollars, and it generates a front page story in the newspaper and a ton of outrage and snark. This one is about millions of dollars being funneled from counties and cities to one of the largest and most profitable businesses in the world, and it will largely be ignored. I confess, I don’t quite understand why that is. Be that as it may, read it and if you live in an area where your tax dollars are going to benefit WalMart’s bottom line, you might consider giving some feedback about that to the elected officials who made it happen.
