....wait for it....
Conservatism says they should instead of government!
Pure conservatism says wealthy corporations will pay a living wage to workers, and via charitable contributions help prop up those individuals in society who are poor because for one reason or another can't work. Conservatism also says that if you don't form national unions but rather allow "local, in-house unions", the corporation can better deal with "internal problems" rather than leave such to the devices of national unions. How well did that work for the employees until unionizing went national?
How much better is the standard of living for working class Americans today?
Can most middle-class Americans easily survive off the wages they earn today?
Can most Americans claim to earn a living wage?
If one can answer in the affirmative to all of these questions, then I'll stand up and declare "Conservatism rocks!!!" But I bet you can't.
Conservatism looks after one entity and one entity only: The Corporate Interest! And those interests didn't go amok until Reaganomic took hold in this country, i.e., "LOBBYISTS!!!!"

hus: Hon we have spending problem
hus: we have to go to a MWF caloric intake schedule to handle this problem.
wife: "caloric intake?" WTF why not just call it what it is ? EATING you dumb ass.

Any logic is better than what I am seeing from liberals. How can liberals keep calling for more revenue and ignore the 56 plus million people earning income not paying any FIT or the 24 million unemployed or under employed Americans not paying full income taxes. How anyone can expect the people paying the most now to pay more is beyond logic and common sense.
