Ending Corporate Welfare

Program #COLC-YESF001. Recorded in Boston, MA on February 07, 1996.

Interviewed by David BarsamianThe real welfare scam is not AFDC, Aid to Families with Dependent Children, but ADC, aid to dependent corporations. Tens of billions in federal dollars go to some of the largest corporations and wealthiest individuals. They benefit through all kinds of bailouts, loans and subsidies and a tax code designed to keep money in their pockets. The welfare kings are laughing all the way to the bank. Chuck Collins and Felice Yeskel are co-coordinators of Share the Wealth in Boston. They have done much to expose the taxpayer-sponsored handouts to the rich and powerful. They have also devised creative solutions.
