    So, start a thread on what you think should not be subsidized then.Oil companies are mentioned in the OP article, other subsidies are not.

    They pay income taxes on their employees but the political wing is the same as KKKarl Roves.

    In your attempt to be clever, you've made no sense.

    it is not what I think, it is what the constitution says, ..it makes no provisions , for government being venture capitalist.

    government cannot invest in GM, of hand out money to business, it likes.

    nothing in the constitution states government can hand out money...to anybody.

    Looks like the republican party are getting what they ask for...in spades.

    <Senate Democrats plan to draft a budget blueprint that calls for significantly higher taxes on the wealthy, oil and gas companies and corporations doing business overseas, reopening a battle over taxes Republicans had hoped to lay to rest with the “fiscal cliff.”>


    <“There’s going to have to be some spending cuts, and those will be negotiated,” Schumer, the No. 3 Democrat in the Senate, said in an interview after the show. “But doing a budget is the best way for us to get revenues.”>

    <House Republicans are eager to draft a reconciliation bill to cut spending on federal health programs and to overhaul the tax code, in part by cutting rates. And Democrats are eager to draft a reconciliation bill that would raise additional revenue, in part by limiting tax breaks for wealthy individuals, oil and gas companies and multinational corporations.>

    Senate Democrats’ budget plan will reopen battle over taxes - The Washington Post
    The democrats want every dollar and every cent from the working class in order to redistribute while denying they're communistic in nature.

    At this point in my life I could care less if they use Marx's model or not - the end result is the only thing that matters. Generally I call them "nanny state elitist psychopath tyrannical devils" however their redistribution economic idea goes nameless.

    Of course in our democratic society (which temporarily still exists) idiots will vote for whoever promises the most free taxpayer money...

    Some country we live in... The poor have no reason to become middle class, the middle class have to support the poor and the rich have so much money it doesn't matter.....

    Just because you say so. If they don't have profit, how do they manage to give massive donations to their fav political candidates and pay the income tax on those donations? Please provide a link.
