    If you're talking about corporate welfare, sounds a little low ballish.

    I'm not selling it. You are very "liberal" because this fact is unknown to you.

    My personal circumstance is not relevant and is quite unique. I pay the government nearly nothing and get / ask nothing in return. The issue is not you or I, but what the taking from those you hate so much who make money (you know the people that you call rich) and give it to a growing number of people who feel entitled to others money. It won't end well, its not sustainable, and when the house of cards falls I'll still be fine just like I am today. You?

    You are correct. A drop in the bucket. Now please add in disability payments, please add in section 8 housing, the telephone hand outs and the other social safety net programs created by the left to buy the votes of the masses who don't want to bother trying.

    No idea why you are responding with an op-ed.

    Can you point me to the part in the op-ed that tells you how much of that trillion number is the actual number, according to the author of this op-ed?
