Both Republicans and Democrats have been called out for giving out corporate welfare. No on in Washington seems to give a damn.Bob Schieffer Slams Republicans for Giving Out Corporate Welfare Instead of Helping the Poor
While millions of poor and middle class Americans vote Republican, GOP politicians make it clear where their allegiance lies—with the wealthy and big corporations.
They don’t even attempt to hide this fact. They constantly oppose programs that would help the poor, and build their entire economic ideology upon policies which always benefit the rich.
So it should come as no surprise that Republicans would choose to approve billions of dollars being given to giant farm owning corporations, while not approving a single dollar for the poor.
Bob Schieffer called out GOP Representative Mike Kelly this past weekend after the House of Representatives did exactly that.
See, earlier this month House Republicans passed a bill which removed funding for SNAP, but went ahead and gave billions of dollars in farm subsidies to big farm owning corporations. The Republican defense of this is of course that they “couldn’t pass a bill which included both provisions, so they decided to separate the two.”
