The Jentleman -
Many people of all walks of life favor getting shit for free... Being black has nothing to do with it.
The top 1% loves their free shit, as do oil companies, weapons contractors, farmers, etc. I've paid taxes for over 20 years in this country and yesterday I stopped by the pharmacy to pick up 2 weeks worth of medication for my fiance. It cost her 180 bucks on top of the 600 dollar monthly premium that she pays. And since she is relatively healthy and has not used her deductible, we are now responsible for 100% of the prescription cost.
So who's getting free shit in this country? I'd much rather have my tax dollars go towards helping people like me who works their asses off than to give tax breaks to people like the Waltons who make millions each in daily passive income
What is “whataboutism”...
And I believe all the top corporations receiving subsidies are clean energy companies.
I would definitely be okay with removing all subsidies for corporations.
This is not a non sequitur, we're talking about our tax money. You're telling me that oil companies, soy bean and corn farmers, defense contractors, etc are all green? Our tax money goes to shit that most of us don't need, but when we want things that actually help people they are called entitlements and hard working people are shamed for not wanting to go broke paying medical bills
Here’s the top 10 who have received federal money since 2000.
I’m fine with ending subsidies for them.
NextEra Energy. $1,938,811,949
NRG Energy. $1,730,060,410
Southern Company. $1,475,553,962
Summit Power. $1,441,936,555
SCS Energy. $1,254,154,000
Duke Energy. $898,436,173
General Electric. $836,524,548
I don’t see a whole lot of what you’re complaining about though...
