I voted citizen. But in truth that is not the answer either. The right answer would be to provide more jobs. Not sure if it would help, been pondering in my mind, where this country bans imports of all kinds. Even if it is an American corporation that just happens to get it build outside of this country. That may bring back some jobs. Just not 100% sure if that would even work.

They are both the same, a handout is a handout. It is all part of the same dysfunctional system.

Public welfare is needed, there are clear cases of waste and unproductive projects, but overall it is a benefit for people and the economy. Corporate welfare benefits those companies who are politically connected.
