    what exactly is corporate welfare. I hear that term alot and it has no real meaning

    some say this is corporate welfare--a city offering tax abatement to a corporation contemplating building a factory in that city. That is not welfare-its called a negotiation. The city gets jobs, payroll taxes, and workers (who support other businesses such as diners near the new factory) which the city fathers believe is worth more to the city than "lost" tax revenues that would not exist unless the company built the factory in the first place

    another example is say the owner of a NFL football team telling the current city in which it is located to help finance another stadium or the team moves to a teamless city willing to do so. That's not corporate welfare, that is again a quid pro quo

    what do we get by subsidizing sloth and dependency? what do I get by paying lots of taxes so some 19 year old can have her 5th child with her 4th boyfriend? NOTHING-what i get is more crime and more dem voters voting for those who promise them more of my money

    Actually, this is a horrible idea, since people could raise the amount of income taxes needed to be paid to be a citizen, and therefore cut out the voting rights of more and more of the population until a few hold all the legal power to impose their tyranny on the larger population. I don't think our Founding Fathers would support that at all.
    It could become a formula for oligarchy, to be sure, unless voting were limited to people who paid any income taxes.

    I'm not so sure that the founding fathers would find fault. Their idea, after all, was that only property owners would vote.
