    I may be mistaken, but I actually think that Fang is referring to tax cuts.

    Corporate welfare? This has been about personal income taxes. I see all this howling over peanuts being given to people, even those with plainly evident needs. Where is the outrage over billions upon billions being heaped with no accountabilkity at all onto the rich and the filthy rich, people who essentially have no wants or needs at all?

    MOre whining based on the flawed assumption that the richest 1-2%, (the only cohort that pays MORE of the income tax share than their share of the income) are not paying enough

    only a hard core statist can claim tax cuts-that resulted in the richest one percent PAYING EVEN A HIGHER SHARE OF THE INCOME TAX Burden-could call such stuff welfare for the rich

    when the top one percent start paying less than one percent of the taxes than you might have an argument. Being charitable, when the rich pay less of the income tax burden than their share of the income, then your babbling can be seen as someithing other than blatantly dishonest nonsense. But that is no where near happening

    He thinks the government is the primary owner and stakeholder of all wealth-hence his idiotic claims that tax cuts are welfare even though those receiving the tax cuts now pay an even higher share of the tax burden

    The government says to the citizen: "Your earnings are not exclusively your own; we have a claim on them, and our claim precedes yours; we will allow you to keep some of it, because we recognize your need, not your right; but whatever we grant you for yourself is for us to decide." ~ Frank Chodorov, The Income Tax: Root of all Evil

    WTF are you talking about? How did you get the money that wasn't taxed? Was it given to you? If so, by whom? All I see is a person that either has no grasp of reality, or you has no grasp of taxes. You can pick.

    Well if its not about corporate welfare, which I hoped was the case to save you some face you have nothing of substance to say.

    Why should the government be able to tax money inherited by someone? It doesn't matter the amount.
