I really wish someone would explain to me why tax breaks are included in everything now days.

If everyone would pay their share there'd be money coming out the kazoo.

It is simple ladybug. The tax credit deal was to encourage those just like this big firm to build low income rentals for people that can't afford to buy homes.

Instead of fixing what causing this problem that can't afford to buy homes and good paying decent jobs, they applied a band-aid to it. It was quick fix with no long term plan to go with it.

Just another ineffective program that is out of control and we are taxed for it.

They have done studies after studies and they have already shown it gets low income families off the street but does nothing for the economy.

Hada is one those types that prey on cities like Salem. They need to give that woman salesman of the year.

There are waiting lists of people hoping these projects get build.

Every major city in the usa is failing. The minorities are taking over each of these cities and now they have come up with the Diversity shuffle plan. Spread these people out. Get them out of these blighted cities and living con

living conditions.

Here is what happens. Bring in these action groups that are now screaming, no no we can't keep putting these people in areas that have no jobs. Thus Salem.

What is happening now, is because of these big action groups hammering down these programs these tax credits are getting harder and harder to come by. They have raised the standards and now the overall picture of Salem is taken into consideration. I know this will tick off city council but that is a huge fact. We have to have the jobs to match the population. We can't keep a welfare state growing. That is probably why they are now trying to build at least half of their intended project. They can't get the full project to fly.

You got to have the balance of growth. Now here is the worst part. These projects that are successful come with the people who move into these areas armed with protections out the butt. If I was a small employer in this town, I'd pay attention to all of this, because your own hiring practices will be watched like hawks.

We can't keep these borders open with no job growth. These people have to live somewhere.
