Boeing math doesn't add up

So the governor wants to add a 10-cent gas tax on us so Boeing can get a gazillion dollar tax break to afford us an additional 2,500 jobs? How many will be laid off and just what might the total number of actual jobs will be created? Some 2,500 is a drop in the bucket and is insignificant when unemployment is around 7 percent or more. And add to that a toll on I-405, closing the Diamond Lane, and forcing more and more cars to use the remaining untaxed lanes and completely clogging an already plugged up freeway. And do you really think the money will be used as advertised? Where do we get these guys?
