Reply to: Koch Brothers Should Return $157 Million in Government Subsidies
It's clear you have no clue. subsidies are meant to help a company that's struggling or short on cash for growth. the ability to compete is a farce. that's what profits are for. it use to be a company earned profits and it than reinvested, increased workers pay etc, not line their pockets and than turn around and bum money, tax payer money to do the fore mentioned things. maybe you should look at koch's short list of things they want done. right to work laws bust unions etc. what good is bringing a job if it pays minimum wage while a union job pays much more. research what ALEC has done to destroy whats left of the middle class among other things. facts do matter, even today.
Reply to: Kochs Bankroll Move to Rewrite the Constitution
This article is full of distortions and false info. An Article V Convention is a Convention to recommend .. It cannot approve anything but the suggestions. The state legislatures do the ratifying if they can put together 38 states that agree. There is no "threat" of a "runaway convention" as nothing is finally decided until after the convention completes its suggestions. If the delegates to the convention decide to recommend 1 or 20 amendments, each one must be voted on by the state legislatures individually. Where is the threat. Keep in mind that this convention might very well recommend parts of the constitution's amendments be repealed...such as the income tax, the 17th Amendment that removed the ability of the states to appoint its Senators (they were never intended to be elected by the people). Lots needs fixed in Washington beside term limits and budget. Convention of States is the only constitutional way that it can be done. Congres won't do it. Too much power lost.
