Let's cut Corporate Welfare to Social Welfare levels!

Corporate welfare costs our country way more than social welfare and it effects far fewer people. Both are paid by us, through taxes.

Corporate welfare supports people who earn upwards of 200 to 300 times what the workers for these companies earn.

Many of these companies have workers that earn so little that they need social welfare to get by... even though the corporations are posting record profits.

This is double dipping.

Our taxes pay for corporate welfare and social welfare. Yet, these corporations make profits from underpaid employees. Record profits during these years that our country is struggling.

Forget my thread's title. It should be... "Let's cut Corporate Welfare".

5. We can start by figuring the amount Walmart's employees cost us in food stamps and Govt. Healthcare

and BILL them for it.

8. What?...cut welfare for the corporate person-hood?

Are you kidding?...are you trying to starve them to death?
Sure they get more, but they are so much bigger than us little people...they have to eat more...

Sorry I was just feeling snarkey...it is a wonderful idea...I say end that socialist program altogether.

9. End Socialist Programs for Corporations!

I like that. Almost sounds like a Republican angle.

11. And that is exactly how we should frame it.

And it would not be a lie.

10. Yes!!! cut welfare for those entitled folks. the 1%ers who need more

because they are so much more important than you or me. The "job creators" who make work for the little folks. YES, those folks who are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness; not those of us who have to sweep up after them--the 99%ers.

12. Oh they would not like that one bit.

It would cost them thousands of dollars to bribe the congress not to pass it.

13. The original scam was all that money was supposed to go to the workers....

 

You know,...because the companies couldn't afford to give pay raises.

15. Amen.

I love the idea of billing corporations such as Walmart and McDonald's. When they refuse to pay a living wage, they are the true freeloaders.
