Tax Attacks II… In a previous post, I suggested that neo-populists like David Sirota and New Dems like Ed Kilgore (the two have been warring lately over what a progressive economic agenda might look like), ought to find common ground in supporting some kind of ban on the ability of footloose corporations to extract tax breaks from job-hungry state and local governments. Sirota has since emailed me to say he’s for the idea. And now Kilgore has weighed in with his qualified support. See, we can all be friends!
