Why do you have a problem with people receiving GOV assistants but not corporations?

[quote:Anonymous Coward 1447583:MV8yMDQzOTY3XzM0MzQ5NTY0XzJEN0UwOEUx] Any real conservative has problems with welfare for anyone, be it for certain groups of people or big corporations/banks. I only skimmed the first page but some people still think big oil companies get subsidies from the US government. Big oil companies take advantage of tax loopholes to keep more of their own money, which does not equate to government giving them taxpayer money (therefore, it isn't a subsidy). The problem with welfare is that it encourages laziness and steals from others. The best welfare program is a good paying job and to get one of those you need either a college education or special skill set that is desired by the market. America needs to get back to being the land of opportunity. If we didn't have so many regulations and high levels of taxation, jobs would come flooding back in to America. If we didn't have so much government spending (welfare, warfare, useless alphabet agencies) we could have much lower taxes and people would be more generous with their money, because they would get to keep more of what they earned, instead of having their money confiscated by the government that wastes taxpayer money on bad business models, bombing children in the middle east and giving bankers bonuses.

A lot of you people here on GLP seem to think people on welfare(the vets, the disabled, the old, people who make under 20k) are the problem. But there is no outrage or anger for the companies who make billions yet find ways to stick their hands in the pot. When you come one here and make threads about people who receive "handouts" when most of them actually need all the help they can get but fail to mention companies who exploit gov assistants you look like a bunch of selective problem solving hypocrite. How can you sit behind your screen and bash these people yet turn the other way at the real problem. Its like the cop who would rather chase down someone peeing in an ally instead of the guy mugging down the street.
We need to do better.
