End corporate welfare
Robert Reich's ongoing video series continues here with the above theme. Why are we giving handouts to corporations that don't need it, when in so doing we don't have enough money for schools, roads and lower taxes for the rest of us? Especially when only about 12% of government spending goes to welfare for individuals in need, while a much greater percentage goes to the corps who are raking in record profits. Who are the real takers here? And who is government serving?
