For people who claim to vehemently oppose "Corporate Welfare", progressives sure seem to support it and defend it 24x7. When Barack Obama throws trillions of dollars at the auto industry and Wall Street, they celebrate. When he throws billions of dollars at Solyndra and Elon Musk, they defend it.

I've realized that progressives literally cannot figure out which way is up. They contradict themselves from one breath to the next.

Its not just the left that can be partisan hypocrites. Its pretty abundant on the right, too.

As long as it's their corporation, or if it's their guy handing out tax dollars, all is well.

Their hearts in the right place and that's all that matters, don't cha know...

With RINO's maybe. But not with true conservatives. Besides, that's not what this thread is about. If you want to discuss right-wing hypocrisy, then start a thread on it. This one is about how progressives feign outrage over something that they created, support, and defend.

But you haven't done that, nitwit. You've yet to even state one example, much less prove one. Any other stupid things you'd like to say?

Are you that fucking retarded, that I would actually need to?
You partisans are all from the same grove, just different trees.

Liberals call tax breaks corporate welfare and that's highlarious, because they have no problem with the fact that 45% of the population doesn't pay income taxes at all. Another problem with corporate tax is the assumption that it actually is payed by the company its aimed at and not added to the price of the goods and services. If you think of it that way it turns into a thinly veiled federal sales tax.

I definitely have no issue at all with tax breaks for for Elon Musk's SpaceX company not since the Obama administration canceled the Space Shuttle program. I don't care for the US relying on the Russians to get our Astronaut's into space. Commercial development of space is going to have huge benefits for all in the future and the private industry can do things cheaper, faster, and more efficient than any government run bureaucracy.

I saw this bumper sticker that was brilliant..."I will believe corporations are a person when Texas executes one".
