The new Congressional leadership has vowed to reform the welfare
system. They claim these entitlement programs place an undue burden
on the average taxpayer. Unfortunately, Congress is focused on the
nation's less expensive social welfare system, when they should be
focused on corporate welfare, e.g., subsidies, grants and tax breaks
for businesses. During 1994 the federal government spent an
estimated $104.3 billion on corporate welfare, while spending only
$75.1 billion for social welfare programs for the poor.
The Corporate-Welfare list will provide information on legislation,
studies, policy papers, and campaigns aimed at eliminating special
interest handouts dubbed Aid For Dependent Corporations (AFDC).
This is a low-volume list with all messages originating from the list
