I've heard the same rhetoric here in Tulsa when they were trying to lure Boeing here. "Think of all the jobs it would create!" (jobs that none of you can get because Boeing's own people already have them!)

That's still 500 more people coming into a (likely economically depressed) area, buying gas, groceries, homes, rent, cars, starting families, living lives. It might not be direct jobs for the locals but where are those specialists spending most of their paychecks?

Yeah, and the money that they're spending are tax dollars provided by the taxpayers of Rhode Island so they're just redistributing taxes in an unfair manner. They would have been better off just providing tax cuts for that amount and let the taxpayers spend or invest the money themselves.

Well, now you're just trying to mix common sense and government. Everyone knows you can't do that.
