Again and again, the business community pushes for corporate income tax cuts and job creation credits.&nbsp; But there’s no evidence that either does anything but drain the treasury. &nbsp;So far, we’ve been kissing out tax revenue goodbye, along with the jobs that Hewlett Packard moved to Mexico and the 200 we lost when Schott Solar shut down.</p> Wed, 13 Feb 2013 14:00:00 +0000 Dede Feldman 24960 at http://kunm.org Op Ed: A Jobs Plan For NM That Might Actually Work Op Ed: Power, Position And Pork...And Maybe Some Solutions, Too http://kunm.org/post/op-ed-power-position-and-porkand-maybe-some-solutions-too <p></p><p>Opening day in the NM Senate is always filled with high drama.

Thanks to Santa Fe’s total abdication to everything NRA—you can openly carry any kind of loaded gun here as long as you’re not a felon, and over 19 years old.</p> Wed, 02 Jan 2013 14:03:00 +0000 Dede Feldman 23172 at http://kunm.org Op Ed: Taking A Bullet For The NRA Op-Ed: in New Mexico, SuperPacs Are the New Normal http://kunm.org/post/op-ed-new-mexico-superpacs-are-new-normal <p></p><p></p> Wed, 12 Dec 2012 12:00:00 +0000 Dede Feldman 22407 at http://kunm.org Op-Ed: in New Mexico, SuperPacs Are the New Normal
