This is a key moment to attract "green" businesses. To start the conversion to a healthy environment with cleaner air in the Wasatch Valley by taxing the emissions of old time polluters and attracting green companies during this time of growth with lower taxes due to their low pollution profile.

"The president’s new budget proposes to provide $20 million to fully support SelectUSA. ....when companies like Hexcel choose to build and expand in U.S. towns and cities, our middle class grows stronger, our economy thrives and the next generation will find good jobs."

I was the lead software engineer on an automated storage system used at the old Hercules (now Hexcel) composite fiber manufacturing plant in Magna back in the late 80's. They have since continued, "to build and expand" because it made good economic sense. And, because they did it in the right way and at the right time/place, they've succeeded.

While I appreciate the pro-business **appearance** of President Obama's "SelectUSA" program, I note that the paltry $20 Million he's devoting to it is less than 5% of the money he dumped down the drain on the Solyndra fiasco, just one of his many pet "green energy" project failures.

If he **really** wanted to do what he purports to want with the "SelectUSA" marketing ploy, he'd do more to reduce the tax/regulatory and general governmental bureaucratic burden on U.S. businesses and people.

Business propaganda is propaganda. Mostly false.

The notion that favorable perks to investment will create jobs is false.

When businessmen cause the government to take money from the taxpayers and give it to business, it does not create jobs.

Consumers, who are the real creators of jobs, will have less will have less money to spend to create jobs.

It might help if conservatives could learn to ask meaningful logical questions.

Ultra Bob,
any time we try, the liberals cannot answer or otherwise ignore them
