Just about all 'welfare' is, in actuality, subsidies from the government to businesses, whether by providing customers, as in the example you provide, or by enabling employers to pay cut-rate wages people could not and would not tolerate if it were not for supplements received from the government.
When things are not called by their right names, what is said cannot make sense. When what is said does not make sense, what is planned cannot succeed. When plans do not succeed, people become uneasy. When people are uneasy, punishments do not fit crimes. When punishments do not fit crimes, people cannot know where to put hand or foot.
