    Which Economic Evil is Worse?

    --There are those that say welfare is laziness and sucking on the teet of the government.

    --There are those that say corporate head honchos that earn over $175,000 a year that do little actual work and basically just show up for thier job on occasion is a crime. These people make sure the company is profitable generally at the expense of the "little guy".

    --There are those who say the Unions that milk tax payers or corporations for more and more, thus making that company less and less efficient are the cancer in America.

    Alright, if I have to pick I'm going to say the Corporate Elite. They're drinking our blood from every possible angle and from every segment of society, while the welfare queens and union bosses only have a handful of ways of screwing us.

    Only a very small minority on welfare use it in an unfair way.

    Most top employees actually work pretty hard and have crazy hours.

    I have no problem whatsoever with people unionizing and making their work pay more.

    My biggest concern are those that influence congress and distort the resolution of issues to their favor in detriment of the majority. If we did have such bad corruption (or campaign contributions), we would have much more sensible laws and a more responsive government I believe.

    welfare because it creates dependency that is trans-generational. corporate elites tend to victimize shareholders who can move their investments. welfare parasites vote for more and more welfare pandering politicians and the malignancy spreads. I can avoid poorly run corporations with overpaid executives. I cannot avoid having to pay taxes for genderations of those addicted to entitlements

    I think that is clearly wrong. and most corporate executives are useful. people on welfare-some cannot help it-don't help America at all.

    At least a corporation produces something, the other two produce nothing at all.

    Sure. I don't have anything against corporations, just corporate executives who get nine figure bonuses for running companies into the ground. The rest of us have to eat what we kill.

    I'll take one word from one answer and another word from another answer and state my biggest evil - corporate welfare.
