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

[b]The program has doubled in size since 2008 and quadrupled since [/b]2001. Food stamps are one of nearly 80 means-tested federal welfare programs, including 17 for nutritional support. Collectively, these programs cost $700 billion annually, plus $200 billion in state contributions. From 2001 to 2006 the food stamp budget doubled, even as unemployment remained around five percent. Food stamps make up 80 percent of the current farm bill, costing $770 billion over the next 10 years. Food stamp spending is projected to remain permanently and significantly above pre-recession levels. Were food stamp spending returned to pre-recession (2007) levels, and increased at the rate of inflation, it would produce 10-year savings of $340 billion. The current farm bill calls for only $4 billion in savings. The rapid increase in assistance is remarkably similar to the rapid decrease in the ratio of workers to Social Security/Medicare recipients, and it’s just as unsustainable. It’s also a demonstration of how absurd the program has become. We are the wealthiest nation on Earth, and yet 1 in 7 Americans have to get food assistance? More than 40% of us don’t pay federal income taxes, which means the burden of these costs fall on fewer and fewer Americans as well — about 4 in 7, if that. That kind of ratio will lead us to the same entitlement crunch we’re already barreling toward with Social Security and Medicare http://hotair.com/archives/2012/06/27/sessions-food-stamp-programs-exploding-in-costs-size/ ---- So we have $770 billion dollars in food stamp programs alone, that's upwards of a trillion dollars in that one program alone. It's unsustainable. No way around that. Recipients have DOUBLED in size since Obama took office. Well, here we go for another 4 years. Will it double again? [/quote] Corporate welfare = MANY, MANY trillions. [/quote] Link??? I don't necessarily doubt it but would like to see it and know under what in the budget this is listed as there doesn't seem to be all that much unaccounted for. [/quote] You need a link? The public numbers were around what, 17 trillion? That is a VERY conservative number. They've stolen everything, these people on welfare have given up, they just don't give a fuck about a government that doesn't give a fuck about them. Makes sense to me. :1dunno1: [/quote] Yes, I do because I can't find where in the federal spending these "trillions" are. It's very clear, however, where the entitlements are. http://www.cbo.gov/publication/42636 [b] Notice that well over HALF of federal spending goes for entitlement programs.[/b] [/quote] Now you're just being ridiculous. Stop. [/quote] Did you look at the link? That is what the Congressional Budget Office report says. We spend 20 Trillion dollars on entitlement and social programps, about 60-70% of ALL federal expenditures. It's not what I say, it's what the records at the CBO says! It's a FACT. [/quote] And how much have the bankers gotten with their bailouts? It's certainly not billions as you have suggested. That's ridiculous. [/quote]
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.
