    They won't, because they can't. The horde is just a mindless tidal wave of collective circle-jerking.

    If you read the source in the OP, it might clue you in. Just hover your cursor over each category and do a search on each one of them.

    I'd love to respond to this, but I think I'll just wait a few more minutes in case any others wish to humiliate themselves too.

    Well, for starters, how about the $3.2 Billion tax concession to Boeing. That would equate a nearly %100 tax break. Or there's the $262 million to Dell. Just a few examples.

    Don't even go there with Monsanto and all the tax breaks, military perks, special laws and concessions, and preferences they receive from the US taxpayer. Oh and how they manage to skirt the liabilty issues for their poisonous, disease causing products.

    Wise perception. The confounding enigma is how EASY it is for the faction among the 1% ...to baffle and herd a lot of poor rednecks. Politics.... has a natural tie to economics but NOW...to pervert that...Mass Psychology has become more relevant to many than Economics.

    If you can WORK...rouse...inflate...the effects of Inferiority complexes, paranoia,sociopath and psychopath tendencies.CULT-Think,...can take REASON and LOGIC and TRUTH out of POLITICS...make it about paranoia,hates, resentments,herd instincts...greed... then you can potentially make DEMOCRACY...a liability. That's your Tea Party creed.

    Are you sure you're thanking the right people?

    I believe the OP's numbers may be slightly off - according to The Federalist (surely that's a source you trust), the actual amount each of us pays toward corporate welfare programs is estimated to be about $2436 per year. Not only does corporate welfare wreak havoc for small, privately-owned businesses, that's $2436 of my income those companies and corporations absolutely do not need or deserve.

    So, no, regardless of the actual amount that corporate welfare costs me every year - $4000 or $2400 - I am NO fan of corporate welfare.

    Evidently, you are.

    I'm shocked. SHOCKED.

    My god you guys do not comprehend anything, do you?

    Where did the $4,000 figure come from?
