How much money will Gov. Scott Walker have the taxpayers of Wisconsin give to Foxconn to install its company here? The State Journal has reported $3 billion over 15 years.
I am frustrated with subsidizing companies that are capable of covering their own costs. If they are not able to pay for their own buildings and any other costs related to building here, then they shouldn't be expanding.
I would like to have a lake house in the North Woods. Can Gov. Walker subsidize that for me? It will give people jobs to build the lake house.
Gov. Walker promised Wisconsin residents 250,000 jobs when he initially ran for governor in 2010. To date, seven years later, he still has not reached that goal. He is planning on running for a third term and would like to have Foxconn on his resume.
I would like to know if any research has been done on the pollution Foxconn will be leaving behind and its water use in manufacturing.
If the governor is trying to keep taxes down for the taxpayers in Wisconsin, paying Foxconn to be here is a negative. We don't even have all the facts need to give Foxconn a definite yes or no.
