Re: How do they get away with it?

It is not socialism, it is the opposite of socialism. Socialism is the practice of collecting funds that are then re-distributed among the population to even wealth and services distribution. The proposed tax cuts are the *exact opposite* of that. The tax cuts are a promise to alleviate one company of taxes in the *hope* of receiving other benefits from their entry into the local market. The distribution of wealth and services is a secondary *possible* benefit that is not guaranteed. The outflow from the common purse is a guaantee.

It is not socialism, it's a market distortion.
