Cult of Corporations
Turns out that the euphemistically named “Jobs Package” (read massive corporate tax cut) enacted by the state legislature and signed by the governor in 2013 has been anything but. “Blow Up Your Budget for Nothing Package” is much closer to the truth. Despite rising corporate profits, New Mexico has consistently ranked near the bottom of the nation in job creation for years.
While the Governor and Republican-led legislature remain in the thrall of the Cult of Corporations, New Mexico’s real job creators are fighting for life supporting access to credit and business insight.
