    HEY! Only the US government provides large corporate welfare to it's domestic companies. Just ask Mariner and a few others. Don't you know that is one of the reasons the US is soooooo evil? Of course, some on this board fail to acknowledge the fact that one of the reasons the US government subsidizes some domestic corporations is so that they can compete globally with the subsidized corporations of other nations.....

    I agree 1000% that Airbus should no longer receive subsidies. However, Airbus has maintained the argument that Boeing also receives subsidies in the form of defense contracts (Boeing is the 2nd largest defense contractor after Lockheed-Martin). Airbus’ claim is outlandish in the sense that Boeing has to compete for these contracts nor do they deliver a NET profit that is equal to Airbus’ subsidies.
