    Accusations of hypocrisy, is one of those little rhetorical attack methods, typically used as a means of character assassination.
    It's used instead of actually debating a person over subject matter.
    Ever heard of groupthink? It's the mien of far left radicals. Character assassination is a mantra for them. It's Hitleresque; they have made themselves the chosen ones.

    I asked this question

    Which major tea party elected officials - or even those who failed to get elected but were candidates - ran on a platform of ending corporate welfare?
    all I got in return was this link

    Tea Party Coalition of WNY endorses Dr. Ron Paul for President[QUOTE=1Perry;1059739451]Tea Party Coalition of WNY endorses Dr. Ron Paul for President

    Again I ask, which tea party candidates campaigned on a platform of ending corporate welfare? Are you claiming that it was Ron Paul? Are you claiming that the views of one lone person are those of the entire tea party?

    Please provide verifiable objective evidence for both because the article does neither other than make a partisan allegation about Paul and the tea party without substantiation.

    After we add tarp and other bailouts, I'd take that bet.

    Conservative classwarfare is incredible. No one called corporations pigs. Only pointing out a fact, we spend more of our tax dollars on corporations. You are not anti business to honestly think they need less of our money than single mothers do.

    I have seen evidence in the past to indicate that the person I was interacting with actually has a sense of humor and would not in fact respond as if he had a 7 foot fence pole wedged up his ass. It was a joke. Relax.

    I'm sure it was, I merely stopped at that one. There seems to be more than a few corporations are pigs comments.

    Id say you were wrong.

    Social Expenditures are outstripping everything except perhaps the military and those are scheduled for cuts already.

    Corporate Welfare

    One egregious type of special-interest spending is ‘‘corporate welfare’’ or business subsidies. The federal government spends about $90 billion annually on corporate welfare.

    http://www.cato.org/pubs/handbook/hb111/hb111-26.pdf

    I
    And it rewards them handsomely. The Federal Government alone shells out $125 billion a year in corporate welfare, this in the midst of one of the more robust economic periods in the nation's history. Indeed, thus far in the 1990s, corporate profits have totaled $4.5 trillion--a sum equal to the cumulative paychecks of 50 million working Americans who earned less than $25,000 a year, for those eight years.
