    It would be nice if he would ask people on welfare to make a tough choice and work for a living... But that may cost him votes so we won't hear him say that anytime soon...

    By the way, when was the last time you heard a non-taxpayer thank a tax payer for taking care of them????????

    About the same time I heard a CEO of a failing company thank a taxpayer for the $billions we used to bail them out.

    Add up all the welfare used by individuals in this country and it's not even a drop in the bucket when it comes to corporate welfare. Do I hear people like you crying about that?

    By the way, in your best guestimate... How many welfare recipients are there vs. Companies that have been bailed out? Thanks.


    I think you are confused.... I am against bailing out companies that want a government handout... you know...a conservative... Not a liberal who is only against certain bailouts...

    I think it's the American government that needs to make the tough choices on how they can drastically cut their own spending.

    I love how people always come in and reply to one of the other replies instead addressing the original issue.... Evidentally those people how nothing to add to the topic...

    I think most people agree that those CEOs = Chief Embezzlement Officers need to go to jail. That's not my question. What tough choices do Americans need to make?

    Can you just answer the damn question? Not that hard! I want to know what Obama supporters have to say.
