TIF Tidbits to Transfer to Text

Nick Johnson of FromDC2Iowa is becoming the guy who consistently digs deeper into an issue than I would be able to on my own, and today is no exception.

Today, Nick writes about the more subtle features of TIF, or Tax Increment Financing, how it impacts developing businesses and why calling it anything but "corporate welfare" is a mistake.

Go read the whole thing, but pack a lunch and something to drink, cause it might take a while.

Do the Democrats feel that Iowa's problems (and I think we have many) are not going to be solved by status quo politics?

TIF is just an example. Our bizarre system of education financing is another.

There are many more.
