Good morning, welcome to Radioactivity. I’m Rob Lorei. Coming up we’ll talk with a reporter at the Tampa Tribune who has done an in depth series of articles on a state welfare system for businesses that was designed to create jobs- but has had a very mixed record…..

But first three listener comments about yesterday’s program about the Supreme Court’s decision on the affordable Care Act.

Tape

The Tampa Tribune reported this week on state programs that give financial incentives to companies to create jobs here. But the report says the program has fallen far short in the number of jobs created- after giving hundreds of millions of dollars to businesses.

The reporter of the series which is called “Gambling for Jobs” is Michael Sasso and he joins us live.
