Republicans (Paul Ryan especially) are going to steal "Corporate welfare" out from under us
I watched a bit of the Hannity nonsense with Frank Luntz this morning and almost spit up my coffee when Paul Ryan mentioned "corporate welfare" I almost did a spit take.

Don't be surprised when they make it their own....and of course do nothing about it.

Ryan talked about ending corporate welfare,

But when pressed on details about cutting corporate welfare, he had nothing to say

1. When you are an idiot, good ideas are hard to come by

3. And when you're smug about your "good ideas"...
...it's easy for others to steal and co-opt them.

Not directed at you personally, of course. But that is one of the many downfalls practiced by Democrats and liberals these days: we're so sure we're right, that our ideas are correct, that we pay no attention to the art of politics and getting those ideas accepted and defending those ideas. So we end up losing anyway, in spite of our better ideas.

6. The Regressive Party uses in-your-face lies
the only way to combat that is to have some in-your-face fighters that use facts
You have to fight the same way they do..........

7. Absolutely right!
We need to be aggressive with our approach, and fight for what is right.

4. Which Democrat asked him ---How can you say you are ending
Corporate Welfare when your Medicare Reform gives Tax Cuts
and pay for it by cuts to Medicare and Medicaid?

The Republicans are not even willing to cut subsidies
to Big Oil.
