8. Then why do we taxpayers have to foot the bill to move the

foreign companies in? It's not just repubs who make these deals either. VW is coming to my county and all that came out prior to sealing the deal was that Sens. Alexander and Corker were working really hard to get this deal. Then a little later that local officials and the Gov. were working hard for it, too, but it was so secret that no details could be released to us peons.

A week or so prior to the election is was leaked that VW would have relaxed pollution standards which would result in even more Ozone alert days. The good stuff didn't come out until after the election, around Nov. 18th and 19th and folks around me, even the repugs, are beginning to grumble.

If this link works it's a small list of the incentives given to VW. http://chattanoogan.com/articles/article_139277.asp
