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".

Our priorities are so screwed up...

We cut entitlements but not military spending.

Increase military spending but cut support for veterans.

Cut spending on the nations infrastructure but boost corporate entitlements.

The Land of the Free has the highest proportion of it's population behind bars than any other country in the world. Mostly in private, for profit, prisons.

Throw drug users in jail but let CEO's that defraud our country remain free and and able to keep their jobs.

...there are many more examples of how we are not who we pretend to be.
