Since its their money to begin with, just because the government takes less from them than you think they should does not make it welfare. Since corporations cannot vote, why should they pay for government programs? Its taxation without representation, the very principle we had the Revolution over.

YOU voted for the fat government programs YOU want. If you want them so bad then YOU pay for it, dammit.
