    Default 99 Of Fortune 100 Receive Tax Payer Subsidies

    As the article states, this isn't Capitalism!

    On average, they receive 200 million Tax Payer Dollars.

    This is outrageous!

    So who are the major corporate-welfare queens? The biggest grant recipients were
    General Electric ($380 million), followed by General Motors ($370 million), Boeing ($264 million), Archer Daniels Midland ($174 million), and United Technologies ($160 million).

    I've been avoiding CNN's Morning show because of their wall to wall plane disaster coverage!

    I can't wait to hear what Neil Cavuto has to say about it tonight on Fox Business Channel.

    though I will read it, is based on a false premise.

    There you go again bashing the job creators. Those subsidies are essential to executive compensation which will then trickle down. The rigged market is also essential and only a socilaist would ever want intrusive gooberment regulations to stop this. It is a great example of how good old fashioned American creativity and ingenuity can build wealth.

    Gee, they wanted to implement a .03% transaction tax on wall street to try and take something out of the hide of these high frequency traders and these masters of the universe had a fit. Tea Party politicians and their supporters screamed socialism & defended these job creator's right to take their well deserved rewards.
