Americans for Prosperity’s latest radio ad in North Carolina focuses on the ongoing debate over state film incentives that are scheduled to expire at the end of the year.
“The film production subsidy is the relic of a bygone era in North Carolina politics, a time when corporate welfare and other forms of picking economic winners and losers was acceptable,” explained Donald Bryson, North Carolina Deputy State Director of Americans for Prosperity. “With the passage of the historic tax reforms in 2013, that era should be over, and our ad captures all that is wrong with this egregious form of corporate welfare. We want listeners to hear this ad and be enraged that their hard earned money is being wasted on subsidies for film production — and not for a core function of state government, such as education, public safety, or transportation.”
