    Nothing is more important to our government – NOTHING – than handing another taxpayer-paid government assistance welfare handout to the largest corporations and the wealthiest investors in the world. And BOTH sides of the aisle are PLENTY non-partisan when it comes to these communist welfare handouts to the wealthy! Who CARES about education or health care – QUICK this is IMPORTANT: ANOTHER welfare program for Boeing! One thing this all proves, though: Without government welfare handouts from the working class, American free enterprise is a dying and dysfunctional failure.
