Hollywood Harper Peterson Rides Again

February 19, 2019

Fresh off his genuflection to the Altar of AOC, throwing his support behind the comically expensive “Green New Deal,” Sen. Harper Peterson is back at it again with some more retreads of bad ideas.

Just in time for Oscar season, Sen. Peterson’s out with welfare for Hollywood.

Recent studies have shown that film credits have no meaningful impact on industry activity in a given state and instead gives away state revenue to an industry that has over $40 billion in revenue every year.

There’s a lot of talk about the transfer of wealth among policymakers these days. It’s too bad the freshman senator from New Hanover only seems interested in transferring the money of his constituents to government bureaucrats and Hollywood millionaires.
