About $59 billion is spent on traditional social welfare programs.$92 billion is spent on corporate subsidies. So, the government spent 50% more on corporate welfare than it did on food stamps and housing assistance.
For just $93 billion a year the federal government is able to provide a better life for these CEOís and their families. Thatís less than the cost of 240 million cups of coffee a day. Wonít you help a needy corporation today?

Republicans were in control of the senate and white house when those corporate welfare programs happened.

What does this have to do with a Republican lying? I disagree with corporate welfare and I think if the company can't survive on its own it needs to file for bankruptcy. There should be no bailouts. Let them fall on their ass. If you honestly think this is a Republican/Democrat thing then you're dead wrong. But if you'd like to sit there and continue to pin all of the worlds problems on Republicans, nothings ever going to change. And we will never be able to compromise and move 'forward'.

It's comical how this realoldschool guy keeps claiming to be an independent, but he gets his panties in a wad every time his beloved GOP is picked on...and I still see everyone that has negative posts about republicans is all the same person in his mind. Lol

with the trillions wasted on government handouts to individuals, the 92 billion in corporate subsidies is a bargain. Now, do you want to substantiate where you got those made up numbers for corporate subsidies?
Not quite

Nothing you wrote is correct. Sorry the facts don't match your fantasy world.

On social issues, I'm to the left. I've never claimed to be independent. I've made it quite clear I don't agree with liberal fiscal policies and that's why I classify myself as a conservative. Your arguments will be more believable when you stop making stuff up.

Aren't you the one who pretended not understand how to read search results after someone proved you wrong when you defended Fox News? Why do you act everyone that disagrees with you is only one person? That makes you come off as a little wacky.

Are you the one that says the same thing over and over and over and over?

No, that's just your delusional mind telling you that there's no way more than one person can realize you're full of it. But, I do remember you never addressed that question every time it was brought up. I see your still doing that. Which means that you're an idiot, a liar or both.

If they weren't all the same person, it's good to know that you agree with the person that made sexual remarks about my seven-year-old daughter. You also agree with the person that does consistent hateful name-calling. And also agree with the person that has no respect for anybody that they talk to. Is that really who you want to take sides with? Be my guest. If that's what the Democratic Party is all about, I want nothing to do with them, and I'm happy to call myself a Republican.

What a scary world you've made up in your head! I don't see where anyone here has mentioned your daughter. Looks like you're just throwing stuff out there to change the subject. Seems like your comments get crazier after you're accused of being crazy. Boo! We're all the same person!!! LMFAO!

I never said anyone mentioned my daughter on this post. Do you ever read what you write? Or what anyone writes for that matter? Let me guess, this is the first time you've ever commented on a topix political post. I'd say the odds of that are zero. Go on in your fantasy world buddy. Whether or not you are the same person with personal attack after personal attack against conservatives, you are eerily similar...the way you change usernames for every post, the way you argue, the way you ALWAYS say how you remember in another post something about me not answering a question. Whether its you or 50 raving liberals in this town because somehow they all talk about Fox News, and all remember MY comments, I'm still glad I dont have to live with a soul filled with hate. You really should make someone else a focus in your life. I'm really not that important. Reply as you wish. I'm done talking to you on here or in any post. I'm sure you'll carry on with your, "wasn't that you in another post talking about Fox News?" "Do you still think all these people are the same person?" Yes. I do. The only delusional person here is the one who starts diluting every topic with name calling and hatred. And that's people like you. Whether its you or multiple people, I don't really care. All you Democrats do is say hateful things. And like I said before, I'm glad I'm not a hate filled liberal. I'm proud to be a Republican.
