I've tried explaining that to them. They're either genuinely incapable of understanding that, or they're deliberately playing dumb.

The above post to which I am responding spews out the totally incorrect accusations the Dems always throw out. Hmmmmm...another White House plant here or just an unknowlegeable person who buys the lies.
It's a toss up.

Ssshhh Obama doesn't want his base to know this lol

They just can't get the concept that when government demands more money (Obamacare, taxes etc) businesses see that as an added expense. They must either cut elsewhere, (jobs) or raise prices to pay for the increase expense. It's a simple concept to understand but it's above their heads.

They must think businesses pick money off trees to pay all those expenses.

I am concerned that nearly half of all U.S. births are paid for by Medicaid. Those kids are welfare-dependent from day one. That's simply not financially sustainable, in any way, shape, or form.
Im concerned about nearly half of the births are paid for by the government but im also concerned how just In the third quarter, corporate earnings were $1.75 trillion, up 18.6% from a year ago, according to last week's gross domestic product report. That took after-tax profits to their greatest percentage of GDP in history. But somehow they want us to spend aprox $92 billion and more on corporate subsidies a year. Figuring that majority of the owners of the corporations are the top 10% of the rich who own about half of the wealth in the country that scary.

That's actually good news for all the severely underfunded pension systems, all of which own corporate stocks. Or do you not want union retirees to get their pensions?

Do you mean the greed of wanting government to take make money I earned to give to you and people on welfare who refuse to work?

Or are you talking about the government taking away my money to help pay for Michele Obama and her "mothers" trip to China includes her stay at a hotel that charges $8,400 a night. Then telling me I have to cut back to pay more taxes. No, that doesn't site well with me either.

As far as im concern they are the most able bodied of us all. But as ive said before the right (im not the left) often has what i call selected morality. Even to the point of ignoring, being in denial or justify handouts to the rich. Im sorry but to me welfare is any money given out by the government that doesn't get services or goods back in return. Both money given to the rich or poor is welfare. Intill the right gets more balanced in there "Welfare Reform" Its bs.
All subsidies should be banned. You subsidize something you get more of it.
It is not moral to use force and take from one person to give it too another. When you rob from Peter to give to Paul you'll always have Pauls support.
