Love the story in today's New York Post featuring praise from film-industry types for the tax credits that attract movie and TV location shoots in New York City.
"This is absolutely one of the best things any government has ever done for its economy," declared producer Harvey Weinstein..."Without this incentive . . . this movie would be shooting in Toronto."
Of course tax cuts for anyone but himself are clearly a bad thing to our friend Harvey. Why else would he be such a fervent supporter of Democrats and their "tax cuts for the rich" demagoguery?
Harvey Weinstein...gave $2,000 last year to John Kerry, the presumptive Democratic presidential candidate. He made most of his political contributions during the 2001-2002 election cycle, the last in which unlimited soft money contributions to the national political parties were allowed. Weinstein gave $85,000 in soft money to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and $50,000 to the Democratic National Committee during the cycle.
