    Then why were hidden tax breaks contained within the bill?

    248 million to Hollywood

    331 million to railroads

    222 million to Puerto Rico

    I've heard that corporate welfare exceeds the taxes that were raised. The answer to part of our problem is so obvious. Does Hollywood really need our tax dollars? Some of the wealthiest people in our country get welfare. And yes, oil subsidies should stop too.
