... for God's sake, don't even pretend reducing taxes has anything to do with the fact that we have reduced tax revenues.

Taxes rates have nothing to do with declining revenue.  It's all because the price of oil tanked.  Oklahoma is trying to imitate Venezuela.

I know you don't, but sadly, too many in this state believe that is true.

And they don't believe cutting the gross production tax from 7% to 2% makes a difference either...  How many are going to believe Dewby that wind power is the big problem?  Again, too many!

Wind power cost Oklahoma $60 million in revenue. Cuts to the gross production tax cost us one billion dollars in revenue. Now which is the big problem?

I see a lot of my friends who work in the oil patch are the ones promoting this the most.

Exactly!!   Wind power subsidies are one of those little jewels that actually work the way they are supposed to.  Bringing development, new technology, more good paying jobs, and diversification of the economy!  A LOT more than $60 million worth...  

It really sucks for the RWRE Clown Show that it is working that way - like Conan says, it pulls the curtain aside just a little bit...
