Hollywood: please don't take away my corporate welfare

Government doesn't even do a good job when it comes to bribery with taxpayer dollars. Here is a thought, get the government OUT of the corporate welfare business and let CONSUMERS decide which products they want to succeed or fail.

A group of international filmmakers has sued Iowa's Department of Economic Development after having to postpone a multimillion-dollar project due to problems with Iowa's tax-credit program for filmmaking.

The lawsuit, the first since Gov. Chet Culver suspended the program in September, alleges breach of contract after the state failed to issue a final contract needed to obtain financing to complete the film.
