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

Washington ladles out about [b]$100 billion a year in handouts [/b]to the undeserving rich. That is a minute fraction of federal outlays for social welfare (Medicare alone will cost more than $670 billion this year). But it is still roughly $100 billion too much. http://reason.com/archives/2012/09/05/the-worst-welfare-benefits-the-best-off None of those links provided says anything about any TRILLION dollars going to corporations. [/quote] I am not the person who claimed trillions. But I will provide this for you http://abcnews.go.com/Business/food-stamps-making-food-companies-fat/story?id=17166643 100 billion to the wealthy and 72 million to feed the poor. If you're cool with that... [/quote] edit: 72 billion [/quote] Yes, that seems like a very REAL figure. That is for one program, just food stamps. But I am tired of people trying to pretend the government spends MORE money on corporations so I'm just getting my fair share to justify a lifestyle of complete irresponsibility. Note no where do I say veterans, social security, and so forth. Those are things people paid or gave into. It's the 100% freebies I oppose. [/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.
