Why does he hate jobs and freedom?

Intel needs to build that plant in a blue free state.
 
2022-07-02 11:06:50 AM  
Rapepublicans are the ones holding the bill hostage and don't want to pass it because it will bring jobs back to the US and we cannot allow Dems to do that.

Also, Ohio has already promised $2bln to Intel to build up an already affluent area where a lot of HQs have moved in the last few years.

My Trumper neighbors blamed this all on Biden, because of course they did.
 
2022-07-02 11:07:04 AM  
He absolutely did not complain about it. He just wants it to go faster.
 
2022-07-02 11:07:23 AM  
Why won't he act like a Democrat and just hand over the money peacefully?

He needs to follow in the footsteps of Gov Inslee with his Boeing tax break, Mayor DeBlasio with his Amazon tax break or and Hochul with her semiconductor industry tax break.

Hey Mike. I live in Ohio.

Go fark yourself. You caved to anti-mask and anti-vax morons. You signed a 6 week abortion ban trigger law into effect, and you are likely to sign a total ban in soon.

You can make us all feel better and quit or get hit by a bus.

You can complain about corporate welfare, or you can complain about budget deficits. You can't do both.

NewportBarGuy: He absolutely did not complain about it. He just wants it to go faster.


Oh, you're half right. He is helping Intel put leverage on Congress to allocate the money the Republicrats crammed into the 2021 NDAA.

Inslee, who put undue pressure on the Boeing unions to sign a contract that cut their benefits and then biatched about them rejecting it, would be proud.
 
2022-07-02 11:14:06 AM  
Socialize losses, privatize profits. That's the GOP way.

Wait, companies that base their decisions on where to locate solely on getting tax money handouts might not be the greatest corporate citizens?  Gonna have to sit down for a while after hearing that shocker

This is about Ohio's new abortion restrictions. Intel was stalling because they didn't want to commit to building infrastructure in a thecratic hellhole. A lot of red states are about to learn this lesson.

Just have a few states bid out the business. It isn't hard. Biggest incentives win. Avoid the taxmaster.
 
2022-07-02 11:19:30 AM  
Oh silly submitter, the Republicans aren't the party of business anymore because businesses were mean to then and said we should respect all people and not be quite so fashy. Now they're the party of fascism, and only support businesses that are unwavering in their support of the state.

If that's the case and they decide not to build in Ohio, I really hope they're very very vocal about the reason.  "If we wanted a plant in a theocracy where regulations could change daily based on the whims of religious bigots, we would have built a plant in Saudi Arabia.  Cheaper labor there than Ohio, and the company wouldn't have to dick around with health insurance."

Thanks, Biden. Doesn't have quite have the same ring as thanks Obama.
 
2022-07-02 11:32:01 AM  
Pretty sure DeWine is correct -- this is about pressure and leverage to get the CHIPS Act passed expeditiously. $52 billion dollars is 2 and half years of profits based on the $20B they earned last year ( -- and, not to mention, quite the wack of state sponsored socialism for those madcap MAGA types hiding under there bed from the socialist boogeyman, keeping desperate score).

He doesn't seem too concerned about the abortion ruling, as he described how their health plans will cover all manner of Healthcare, including assistance to leave the state for an abortion. And DeWine says Intel never mentioned it.

So, yeah....I think it's all about the ca$h.

He's only upset because he can't figure out a way to make women pay for it.
 
2022-07-02 11:34:54 AM  
You can give them all the money and benefits they want, you'll be lucky if whatever they build there provides half the jobs they said it would, and there's zero guarantee that they won't shut down the plant and move elsewhere if there's profit in it for them.

Like hasn't this exact dance played out multiple times in public before?

I really wish they wouldn't be publicizing that. It's just going to force the Neanderthals in the Indiana legislature into implementing our own abortion hellscape.

Ohio has a Republican majority in both the Assembly and Senate.  They have a Republican Governor.  It's on the Republicans if the deal falls through.

No doubt they'll blame it on Biden, Whaley, and Ryan.

Bringing the educated talent to Ohio is the difficult part.  A lot of times PhD scientists and engineers don't want to raise their families among scientific illiterates just because a loaf of bread cost 30% less than it does in the civilized world.  My company had that problem in Kansas during the FSM nonsense, candidates outright said they wouldn't move their families to Kansas even for California money, it would have to be a lot more than even that.

(see above post about THIS memes)


The Rust Belt is the Rust Belt because corporations ran away from this area to relocate their plants down south in states without labor unions and with anti-labor laws (and also overseas).

They learned that the quality of labor done by morons was poorer than up here, too, but then automation made up for it in many ways.

But how is it gonna work out when your plants in Mississippi and Alabama and Texass are wiped out by EF4+ tornadoes and hurricanes or you have a 115 degree heatwave and the power grid collapses?

In the next 30 years you're gonna see a trend of people moving North to escape the consequences of Global Warming and you're gonna see these plants move north as well.

Intel might as well suck it up and break ground on the plant anyway and be ahead of the curve.

Frankly, America would be a lot better off if offering tax breaks to or for specific companies/organizations was outright illegal.  Then you wouldn't have every medium to large corporation holding a city or state hostage every few years with threats of "give us a 30 year abatement or we'll relocate and leave a big empty factory here along with taking most of your jobs".

I'm good friends with one of the Board of Education members during that time.  She was one of the sane ones.  I can tell you her public statements about the creationist crowd do not reflect the depth of disgust or the quality of obscenity she felt about them.

A collegue of mine once called me boasting how he had taken a tech job in Alabama; and that the money was great while everything was cheal. He thought I was a fool for not doing the same.

A year later he called me again lamenting how everyone around him was insane and how desparate he was to get out.

I get headhunters hitting me up for Texas.  I have a very niche background.  Some headhunters get offended when I say no due to politics.    Usually goes like this.

Me:nope I value my families freedom and access to basic needs.  Texas wants to restrict that.
Headhunter:but it is remote, you don't have to move.
Me: did I stutter?  I don't see this company taking a stand against so i can only assume they want these laws.   (Funny side not I do stutter)
Headhunter:   srsly, in order for you to consider what do you want?  Them to move their headquarters?
Me: well their position they have had open for 8 months now would actually get considered then.
Headhunter: .....
Me: ....
Headhunter:srsly you know the pay right?
Me : hangs up.
