opensecrets.org says that we spend roughly 100,000,000,000 per year on corporate welfare.
Do YOU agree/disagree that the American people should pay billions in subsidies to private corporations?
I have other questions coming about various things Americans pay for via taxes. Save your…
No, if Obama had any courage and integrity, he would have stopped these wasteful payments. In three years, he hasn’t stopped one single dime of corporate welfare. Why aren’t liberals enraged about this?
Yes I agree we should end most all subsidies, but not all. Some do help . But to be blaming Obama for this is ludicrous. We have been doing this for years on end, and now you want put the blame on some one. Why not blame whoever started this subsidy stuff.
No. You gamble, you pay the price. If you want security, but a lower salary, you take the public sector; if you’re a risk taker and want to earn millions, try the private sector, but don’t come crying if it doesn’t work out. We, the taxpayers, should spend our money on essentials, like a public option for health care, public transport, education and medical help for our veterans.
No I don’t? I also don’t support American taxpayers money being spent on:
The Fast and Furious operation.
So called Stimulus plans.
Jobs bills that aren’t jobs bills but are tax and spend bills!
Bailing out the rich.
Bailing out car companies.
Bailing out unions.
Bailing out banks.
Giving loans to green energy companies who’s owners are O’Bama campaign contributors or who have relatives of Senators or Congressmen working for them.
Giving loans to green energy companies who are not solvent.
No . And your figure is way too low . If we ended all tax loopholes the revenue would double .
My Brothers Do you know zeitgeist movementhttp://www.zeitgeistmovingforward.com/? May be Zeitgeist movement is a solution for you and me do your own research. Today almost all world media in hands of New World Order puppeteers like Murdoch. They manipulate and brainwash people, many of us don’t understand or realize that we all victims of evil plans of NWO. Democrats and Republicans have both failed us. No one is looking out for OUR interests. Next, the Federal Reserve is a Private Bank that issues our currency and controls our Nations Credit. This is against Constitutional Law. It is the Treasury Department’s job to do this. Recently the Federal Reserve printed Trillions of Dollars causing severe inflation. Then the Government used this money to give it to already Rich corporations as our tax dollars. This rigged markets and caused economic collapse around the entire world. These Corporations in turn used that money to give themselves bonuses.1. It consists of Homeless people, hippies, mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, high school students. College students, adults, children, teenagers, democrats, republicans, libertarians, moderates, jobless people, people with jobs… every type of person there is.2. It is in every Major city around the entire world.3. All the protests in America and some other parts of the world are peaceful. But not every part of the world is protesting peacefully. Some countries have over thrown their dictators.4. It’s time to mobilize and aggressively move on common sense political reforms. We’ve had enough of… The Two-Party Oligarchy, Big Government,Big Corporate Power,The Concentration of Power It’s time to… ,Decentralize,Create New Political Parties,Restore the Rule of Law.The economic top one-tenth of one percent of the global population has launched an economic war on us. They are hoarding $39 Trillion in investible wealth, not counting the vast sums they have hidden in offshore accounts. In the United States, we now have the highest and most severe inequality of wealth in our nation’s history. While there is a record number of American citizens currently living paycheck to paycheck, in debt, unemployed, underemployed, without healthcare, on food stamps and in poverty, as our society is breaking down, global bankers have taken our tax dollars and given themselves all-time record-breaking bonuses. The same people who destroyed our economy have been rewarded with trillions of dollars in national wealth. It is now evident that both political parties and all three branches of government, along with the mainstream corporate media, have been bought off by global economic elite. As a broad-based network representing people across the political spectrum, we are working together to reach common ground and fight for pivotal political reforms. As long as the economy and government are rigged in favor of the top economic 0.1%, we will all lose.Here’s a general outline of our common ground platform:Enforce RICO Laws,Break Up the Big Banks,End the Fed,Break Up the Mainstream Media,Shut the Revolving Door,End Closed Door Lobbying,Increase Government Transparency,End Corporate Personhood, Amend Campaign Finance,Verify All Votes,Investigate War Profiteers,Investigate War Crimes,End the Wars,Reopen the 9/11 Investigation,Restore Civil Liberties,Uphold the Constitution,Clean Air, Water & Food,Reduce Healthcare Costs, Profiteering,Make Healthcare a Human Right,Improve Education For All, Reduce Costs,Reform Prison System,Reform Drug Laws,Immigration Reform,Rebuild Infrastructure,Protect Internet Freedom,Empower States’ Rights,End Corporate Welfare,Raise Taxes on Richest 0.1%,Reduce Taxes for 99%.These are the core common ground issues that we must urgently rally around and support. Unless we organize and take decisive action, we will all suffer the consequences of our collective inaction. Any politician who does not urgently move on these issues must be voted out of office and replaced by people who will aggressively fight on these fronts. Your Question I added to the star list. My Brother you doing good job do not stop!
No, let’s end ALL subsidies.
