They own MSNBC and work for Obama.

But they also are roommates with the Pentagon and the war industry.

Maybe GE and other mega-corporations deserve no subsidies or special tax breaks.

Our "representatives" continue to ignore the People and bend over for the Fortune 500.

Personally, I don't care what their politics are, the fact that they have $90 billion in cash and probably more overseas, whereas the country's infrastructure is falling apart angers me the most.

Large corporations exist in a realm that is beyond "mere politics." The point is to influence those in power, no matter who they may be.

What's your plan them to stop the bleeding? It's easy to criticize Obama and those czars... but what would you do?

I'm glad you support Obama's plan for ending special tax code preferences that go to big corporations and the wealthy. Please convince the GOP that this would be good for reducing the deficit.

True. Pay no taxes, buy pols to make sure you continue to pay no taxes. Which Party, take your pick. Growth, well, those jobs need to be overseas.

I'm not sure how you decide if a corporation is liberal or conservative, or that it matters at all.

No corporation should receive subsidies or bail outs.
