"Corporate Welfare" is what Fascism is all about:
==========
"Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is the merger of state and corporate power."

Benito Mussolini

Fascism is the blight on any economy because it actual aids concerns that would normally become extinct or have to downsize because of incompetance, greed or theft. By proping up such concerns, up-coming legitimate businesses, who don't sustain themselves by stealing monies from the US Treasury, are at a disadvantage in the marketplace.

All "Corporate Welfare" needs to be examined and eliminated ASAP, unless a compelling reason can be given to satisfy the American People of its necessity.

...APRIL SURPLUS LOWERS U.S. BUDGET DEFICIT....(5-11-13)..The U.S. government reported a rare surplus of $113 billion for April - the largest in five years and a sign of the nation's improving finances....Steady economic growth and higher tax rates have boosted the tax revenue in recent months, keeping this year's budget deficit on pace to be the smallest since 2008....A smaller deficit is also likely to give negotiators more time to work out a deal on raising the nation's borrowing limit....Through the first seven months of the budget year, the deficit was $488 billion, according to the Treasury. That's lower than last year's deficit of $720 billion over the same period.......

The "Too Big To Fail" Scam was suppoted by BOTH Parties.

Remenber,

http://www.sanders.senate.gov/imo/media/doc/1...

. General Electric CEO Jeffrey Immelt

Amount of federal income taxes paid in 2010? Zero.$3.3 billion tax refund.

In 2010, not only did General Electric pay no federal income taxes, it received a $3.3 billion tax refund from the IRS, even though it earned over $5 billion in U.S. profits.

Number of offshore tax havens? At least 14.

GE has at least 14 tax haven subsidiaries in Bermuda, Singapore, and Luxembourg for the purpose of avoiding U.S. income taxes.

Taxpayer Bailout from the Federal Reserve?$16 billion.

During the financial crisis, the Federal Reserve provided GE with $16 billion in financial assistance, at a time when Jeffrey Immelt was a director of the New York Federal Reserve.

Jobs Shipped Overseas? At least 25,000 since 2001.
----------
AND Jeffery Immelt is Obama's JOB CZAR.

It is gonna be a very arduous ordeal to seperate the Chaff From The Wheat-----but approaching it from a left vs. right, OR Democrat vs. Republican perspective, is obsolete, as the CORPORATE Power Structure has their people in BOTH Parties and at BOTH Ends of the political spectrum.

It's the DEBT that should be lowered you idiots!!!!! Deficit is the projected spending.....kinda reminds me of my ex... was going to have the truck worked on, got estimate, tried to scrounge up enough to get the work done, then it ended up costing less than they quoted...then the idiot said "looks like we have extra to spend now". What a fool.

So in your world, when that man in Cleveland helped those captive women escape, he was only, actually, ratting out a neighbor. No other motivation. Gotcha.
LOL; GREAT REPLY!!!!!!!!!!

I always get a good laugh out of that fool because prior to the election he was all -“Obama will be kicked out of Office by the American people”-… and now he is all doom and gloom/end of the world as we know it.

Agree. That's why conservitives are screaming Bengahzi at the top of their lungs. Trying to drown out the good news.
Naw; they are screaming Benghazi at the top of their lungs because they so desperately need to relive their delusions that had Romney ran with Benghazi the way they are doing now that Obama would have lost the election. They were so traumatized from Rasmussen and Gallup getting it wrong that they will never recover and are just stuck in that moment in time when Obama said to Romney in the second debate,“Please… proceed”… LOL!

The most unemployment....especially amoung blacks and hispanics. It's sad. He should apologize to them.
Why do you feel the need to single out Blacks and Hispanics? Aren’t we all Americans? Funny thing is that it was the very people who you claim are owed an apology who came out in record numbers (in spite of what you say as far as unemployment among those groups) to overwhelmingly vote for Obama… how do you like them apples, LOSER?

Obviously they like them a lot… shown by the fact that they came out and voted for him again. It must pain you to no end when you see that the majority of the American people don’t agree with your retarded assessment of things. At some point you’re going to have to get over the fact that we won… but just like most losers, you will carry this for years to come; but I get to enjoy your pain and suffering.

Were you looking in the mirror when you wrote this?

Benghazi is your political football, and your disingenuous indignation is as transparent as un-tinted car windows. Please, you’re fooling no one; that’s why a recent poll showed that a strong majority of Americans aren’t even following your Benghazi obsession because they know fake outrage from unpatriotic right-wingers when they see it.
No you are

When iwant a laugh I turn on the transgressions men do to each other. Whether men in uniform towards civilians both domestically or foreign. Or whether it is civilian versus civilian. Then i think of people like you and laugh...hahahhahahaaaa! Gotta love the carnage and death!
wow-you've gone over the edge, do you realize that?

You must have laughed hard enough to pee in your pants when Sandy Hook happened.

You are correct....obviously they like it a lot (being worse off)....go figure......No, I will not carry this for years to come, I don't carry it now....I am amazed that those that have it worse vote for the very thing that makes it worse on themselves....HEY it's their choice.....they are having it their way.....suffering. They just don't have a brain to know the difference...AND THAT is what O banks on....He knows they are stupid and will vote for him. The slavery of today.
