Toothless Corporate Bullies

Smart City Memphis makes a great case for not succumbing to the threats of corporate welfare cheats. The taxpayers should fund only those services which are commonly agreed to be public services and let the private sector do its thing. The influence of Chambers of Commerce and large corporate lobbyists have the politicians cowered and afraid to satnd up for the taxpayers. They long ago forgot where the money is coming from that they so easily give away to large corporations. It has got to stop.
