Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick On Trade Trip In Israel

BOSTON (AP) – Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick is visiting Israel to discuss trade, business partnerships and other issues.

Patrick is scheduled to meet Thursday with Israeli President Shimon Peres.

    Who’s dime are the corporate “exec’s” traveling on? Taxpayers?

    Is this trip going to accomplish what the China trip did? Oh wait, a solar panel company gets millions from us and then moves to, you guessed it China.

    What about his economic and jobs council? Oh that’s right 2 years in, never met.

    Why doesn’t Deval stay home and work on Jobs for us. If companies want to move here they will. What we have to do is eliminate the “unfriendly business state” stigma and companies will come. Change the tax structure and the burdensome business regulations we’ve created and they will come, and better yet, stay.

    Globetrotting with the rich is doing nothing for Massachusetts except costing $$.

      Massachusetts has a unique composition of a highly educated work force and a long tradition of national leadership in social issues. The governor is advocating for the commonwealth. What is wrong with that?
