Yes, Ms. Whiner, what can I do for you?

I need some help. I just can?t make ends meet any more.

What kind of help?

Money. I need some money. I just don?t make enough money to support my family.

Your family? Tell me about them.

I have two kids. Seven and ten.

What does your husband do?

I?m not married.

Divorced?

No. I?m just not married.

Does the kid?s father help to support them?

No, neither one of them do.

Neither one of them?

Yeah. They have different fathers.

What do you do for a living?

Nails.

You do nails?

Yeah, you know, nails. I do nails at Nail Fantasy at the mall.

How much money do you make doing nails.

Not enough. I make about $14,000 a year.

How much education do you have?

I like finished high school, you know, but college just wasn?t for me. I wanted a new car, you know, and I needed to go to work to get the money for payments.

Your oldest child is ten. How old are you?

I?m 26.

OK .. what do you want from me? Why did you come see me today?

I need more money. I know there must be some sort of like government checks I can get. I keep hearing about people getting checks for all sorts of things. I want a check.

With your income, you don?t pay income taxes, do you?

No, but I have payroll taxes ? and I should get some of that money back. Other people are getting checks. I want a check.

Wait a minute --- I have something here that might help you.

(Congressman Cheatem reaches into his desk drawer and pulls out a .38 caliber revolver ? he pushes it across the desk to Ima.)

Do you know what this is?

It?s a gun.

Can you use one?

Yeah, my first baby?s daddy showed me how.

OK then. I want you to take this gun, go find someone who has been more responsible with their life than you have, and I want you to use this gun to rob them. That way you should be able to get the money you say you need.

Rob them? I can?t just walk up to someone and rob them! Are you crazy?

Why can?t you?

Because that?s, you know, illegal. It?s, like, illegal! I could get caught and they could put me in jail!

But you?re here asking me for a check! What if there was some sort of a government check you could get, where do you think that money would come from?

I don?t know. The government?

Sure, the government. But where does the government get its money?

The taxpayers, I guess.

Yeah, the taxpayers. So you want me to arrange for some money to be taken from these taxpayers and given to you, right?

Well, other people are getting checks. Why can?t I get one?

Why don?t you just take this gun and go get some!

I can?t!

You mean you won?t. You won?t pick up this gun and go take someone else?s money, but you feel perfectly comfortable coming into my office and asking me to, right?

What do you mean?

Well just how in the hell do you think we get the money you want us to give to you? Do you think these people just come wandering in here with buckets of their money just begging us to find some irresponsible losers to give it to? Come on, girl? We take it, just like I suggested you take it. We take it at the point of a gun! We point that gun at those poor saps and we say ?hand it over, or we?ll take every damn thing that you own.?

Well, everybody has to pay taxes!

You don?t!

I know, but that?s because, like , I don?t make enough money!

And whose fault is that?

It?s not my fault. I can?t help it if I just haven?t been as lucky as those other people.

Yeah, you can?t help it. You decided that you needed a new car and you couldn?t afford one if you were going to college, then you decided to get pregnant as a teenager by two different deadbeats who got between your legs and then out of your life ? and it?s all someone else?s fault.

Hey! I don?t have to take that from you!

OK ? calm down. (The Congressman puts the gun back in his desk drawer) You don?t need to use this gun. You don?t need to because we can.

Who?s ?we??

We .. the government. We can do what you can?t. Like I said, we can use this gun to take property from someone else ? and I?ll see to it that some of that money gets to you. You?ll get your check.

Oh, thank you!

But there?s a catch here. You have to do something for me.

Sure! Anything!

No, no. Button your blouse up. That?s not what I had in mind. I have plenty of interns around here that would cause me a lot less grief than you would. What you have to do is get out there and register to vote ? register to vote, and then remember just who it is that put that check in your pocket the next time an election rolls around.

No problem! I?ll do it, I promise!

Q: According to the General Accounting Office, what percent of U.S. corporations paid no income tax for the year 1995?
11%
39%
61%
91%
A: 61%--almost two-thirds?paid no taxes at all.

The figures reported above give us some basis for assessing how corporate welfare matches up with ?social? welfare?programs for the needy, such as TANF, food stamps, and the like?in terms of costs.

The nation's largest corporations and richest citizens receive more welfare money than our social welfare programs. In 1994, the United States spent $104.3 billion on corporate welfare, while spending only $14.4 billion on Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC; now TANF). If we add together recent federal monies spent on AFDC/TANF, food stamps and Medicaid, it comes to about $85 billion annually. The total cost of the corporate tax breaks and subsidies is hundreds of billions of dollars.

Federal aid to corporations and wealthy individuals include bailouts, export promotions, loans, loan guarantees, debt forgiveness, below cost sales, interest free financing and other benefits. Barrett and Steele (1998) estimate that in 1998 corporate welfare cost the federal government $125 billion a year (note: estimates often vary, as these depend on exactly what one counts as corporate welfare; you will read precise definitions and estimates when you access the Boston Globe link a bit later).

In general, social welfare programs account for a small amount of the national budget. AFDC [the program prior to TANF] is less than 1% of the federal budget and, on average, no more than 2% of each state's fund.

Golly Alpo, what a surprise you don't recognize a post about individuals welfare rather than one of your pet peeves.

Go look up what percentage of INDIVIDUALS pay LITTLE TO NO federal income taxes.

EDIT: Here, I knew you'd be either too lazy or too dishonest to go look.....

While that's one alternative, what I had in mind was don't have kids if you can't afford them, don't look for handouts, and be responsible.

And don't be born to a poor family that can't afford sending you to a private school so you have go to a shitty, run-down, underfunded public school, thus getting lower SAT scores and not being able to afford college.
