Why aren't fiscal conservatives more passionate about corporate welfare?

    Instead, their passions are wrapped up attacking the working class and low income people, who pay into the system (i.e. SS and Medicare).

    Why are their priorities so messed up?

    I hope you're just woefully misinformed and not as stupid as your posts indicate.

    Given that entitlements are about to bankrupt the US government, not corporate welfare (whatever that is) I'd say conservatives have their priorities pretty straight.
    The only question is why liberals are too stupid to understand this.

    Fiscal conservatism is only a facade. They use it as an excuse to get rid of programs that they hate for ideological reasons. The rhetoric is that everyone must sacrifice, but their actions are to provide tax break after tax break for the already wealthy.

    Ever heard of the "Starve the Beast" strategy? If not, look it up. We're in the end game.

    It's to get rid of "entitlements," whatever that is.

    When was the last Koch rally protesting against corporate welfare?

    Seriously, do we live in the same world?

    You should ask Obama the same question:
    Who?s who in the Obama cabinet
