OPINION im T.ursda , Auous,27, 2o, I O continued from page 4 lion tax credit from Louisiana in 2014 to upgrade its facilities. Since 2007, Good Jobs First says Koch Industries itself has received more than $20 million in subsidies through an Oklahoma program designed to incentivize investment and job creation. Okla- homa's government website lists more than $28 million in such tax credits to the firm and its subsidiaries. Koch, it should be noted, is not like other top executives of major corporations. His com- pany is not publicly traded - it is privately held, with most of the company owned by he and his brother, David. That means the Kochs could reject subsidies and not have to justify the move to hordes of shareholders. In- stead, though, they have accepted the gov- ernment support, even as they fund conserva- tive campaigns that deride the influence of government on the economy. Of course, Koch's speech certainly did identify a growing trend in America. As Big Business has used campaign cash to se- cure more control over politics, elected offi- cials have been ap- proving more and more taxpayer subsidies for corporations. Conser- vative opposition to those expenditures will no doubt be the key to reining them in. However, it is dif- ficult to believe that the head of a company that has benefited from so much taxpayer sup- port is really going to use his political power to end the largesse. In other words: The mes- sage may be compel- ling, but the messen- ger is not particularly credible.

Yet in less than an hour, four trains passed through Cheney. Do the math. Meanwhile, there were many gas-guzzling SUVs and RVs cruising around the streets, and there was a concert in Sutton Park.
