If Jeff Bezos, the richest man alive worth $ 188 billion, can afford an $ 8.4 billion acquisition of MGM and a $ 500 million 417-foot yacht with a helipad, you know what? He does not need $ 10 billion in corporate welfare to fund his space hobby. Yes. We will end the Bezos bailout. pic.twitter.com/QKdPw7WNxp

Last year, Intel made $ 21 billion in profits, spent $ 14 billion in stock buybacks and gave its CEO a $ 110 million signing bonus after it shipped over a thousand jobs overseas. No. we should not be giving them billions in corporate welfare with no strings attached. Amendment time.

This episode by @scottsantens has never left me. It chronicles Pulitzer-nominated Theresa Funiciello’s experience as a welfare mother and the horrors of a system that many are trapped in.

One of the real lessons of Trumpism is how easy it is to fool massive groups of people. We’ve seen it since the Reagan era non-existent “welfare queen” stories, but the last 4 years have confirmed it’s possible to fool way more people about way more obviously untrue things

If we can afford billions of dollars in corporate welfare to corporations who are destroying the planet, then yes, we can afford to transform our energy systems, rebuild our crumbling infrastructure, and create millions of good-paying union jobs.
