: Not if it was that chicken factory in which 27 burned to death because the boss had dead-bolted the fire-escape from the outside to prevent workers from taking a break.

Whats that got to do with it? Thats just an illegal act, whats its relation to capitalism? Where is the profit in killing your workforce?

: Actually once you throw medical numbers in the mix, the price goes up. I know something about welfare because I worked as a social worker for about fifteen years. In that time I discovered 4 cases of serious fraud in my caseload. Petty shit was fairly common (extra shoe allowance type stuff)

Petty shit adds up, but even one cent in fraud is bad. Give them (criminals) and inch and they'll take a yard.

: What gets me is that corporate welfare is so much more vast yet there is not nearly the outrage.

There is from me. What better way to tarnish the business community than to have them beg for stolen goods from the govt. People should becase it also means that second rate companies are being held over good ones.
