One can only hope that the days of taxpayer-funded corporate welfare are coming to a close. James Ostrowski's lawsuit against numerous state officials, agencies, and corporate-welfare recipients to end the freebies has been percolating through the courts and will be heard by the New York State Court of Appeals on October 12, 2011. A big rally is planned for Albany that day.
Government funds going to the politically connected (i.e., state capitalism) has poisoned the marketplace, rewarded defective business models, discouraged competition, and cost the taxpayers dearly. It must be ended if New York State, and now the nation, are ever to return to robust economic health.
New Hartford Online has all the details on the lawsuit.
Thank you Mr. Ostrowski for taking this on!
