Bredesen says taxpayers do have limits??

Phil Bredesen, after giving away hundreds of millions in taxpayer funded corporate welfare as Mayor of Nashville and says that there is a limit to the number of taxpayer dollars he is willing to give away. Wow, I am glad Phil's benevolence with OUR money does have its limits.


Bredesen, a Democrat, says the state has offered incentive packages to attract two major projects, and to a series of VW suppliers. He declined to name the companies, but said the offers of tax breaks will stand despite a growing budget shortfall and a dire economic outlook.

Bredesen says if the state is successful in landing either or both of the unnamed projects, it will be a good time for what he calls ‘‘a breather’’ on incentive packages.
