Yes, he is talking primarily about corporate tax subsidies, but what are the bailouts if not corporate welfare on steroids?

Exit questions:

1.  How far Left is our President when Rahm Emanuel from 2006 actually sounds like a conservative?

2.  Didn’t the President’s Porkulus bill pretty much dismantle Clinton’s welfare reform that Emanuel speaks so proudly of in this clip?

John Adds: What happened to his concern for distorting the market and “picking favorites.” Haven’t we be doing a lot of both recently?
