That's right wing thinking. They control the media, but that doesn't make them correct.

The government supports roads. The government supports police. The government supports parks. The government supports the negotiation of trade agreements.

Subsidized daycare for working parents makes it more likely they will work. Subsidized taxes for rich companies lets rich people buy more toys from other countries. I know where I would rather have the government spend money.

I like M2T's idea of treating it as a subsidy, but to be honest I didn't think about it much.

Also, thanks to blink for the moderation, it was a really annoying slur. Made me think a lot less of him.
