    No, corporate welfare is picking winners and losers through tax breaks/subsides. You, as a conservative, should be against all of it because its bigGov trying to plan the economy.

    Corporate welfare is a term describing a government's bestowal of money grants, tax breaks, or other special favorable treatment on corporations or selected corporations.



    Two Republicans stood by their vows to end the federal subsidies of Big Oil, but in the end, it wasn't enough. The rest of the Senate GOP voted to allow the largest oil companies to keep their taxpayer handouts even as they post near-record profits.

    Senators voted 52-48 on Tuesday to block a bill that would have stripped the oil companies of more than $20 billion in subsidies that many argue amount to corporate welfare, particularly when the companies are posting an estimated $3 billion a week in profit.

    The tally fell eight votes short of the 60 required to break a filibuster and move to final approval.
    Senate Democrats have said that the subsidies to big oil companies should be cut to tame the federal budget deficit before other government programs that many midddle class Americans rely upon.

    “Republicans would rather cut college scholarships, slash cancer research and end Medicare than take away taxpayer-funded giveaways to oil companies that are raking in billions in profits. That tells you everything you need to know about their priorities,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid declared in a statement after the failed vote.
    The Washington Current: Sens. Flip Flop, Let Big Oil Keep Subsidies

    This is the current DNC Talking point.

    20,000,000,000.00 to oil companies is evil corperate welfare we cannot afford.

    69,000,000,000,000.00 in unfunded liabilities cannot be touched.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    end a food stamp supplement for elderly and disabled residents
    If this affects the illegals... good. If it is solely based on the elderly and disabled.... this is disgusting. Now how in the freaking hell are they going to get money to eat? I wonder what is really going on here.

    I'll give you another hint "non-enforcement of regulations can cause deaths"!

    If the government's most pressing issue this year is to reduce the deficit and spending, then gifts to major oil companies should be at the top of the list of things to cut, not throwing seniors under the bus.

    It's not, what you FAIL to, and I doubt you've even bothered to do more then get your marching orders and start decrying the "evil GOP Big Oil" folks, is that those subsidies can't just "be turned off", it's not like a "gift" you give your neighbor. We're talking about taxes that cover a broad spectrum of issues, grant,s subsidies etc. etc. FURTHERMORE, this is the act of the state of New Mexico, not something Congress did, thus you are off on a tangent about irrelevant issues.

    You are right about one thing, we do need to focus on important matters, that 20,000,000,000.00 to a wide range of oil businesses may seem big to you, but it's small potatoes compared to the real problems.

    How did any person get money to buy food before government decided they could take money from me in order to give it to you?

    You're the one that brought it into the conversation. And, yes, they can be repealed - or they can be discontinued. But, the GOP doesn't want to, shows where their interests are. They are for those that support their campaigns, not the regular folk.


    And, Susana Martinez, the Governor of NM who is behind this is a Republican. The acorn doesn't fall far from the tree, they are alike - throw the people under the bus and let's give corporations and the wealthy more!

    You are right about one thing, we do need to focus on important matters, that 20,000,000,000.00 to a wide range of oil businesses may seem big to you, but it's small potatoes compared to the real problems.
    You may consider it small potatoes, but it adds to the deficit. So, cutting them out would help, much more than just throwing seniors under the bus and letting the poor people starve.
