Aid to Dependent Corporations

Program #COLC001. Recorded in Boston, MA on May 11, 1995.

It should be a national scandal that so much welfare goes to the rich and powerful. But you hardly hear about it. Instead we are bombarded with stories about fictitious welfare queens driving Cadillacs and getting multiple Social Security checks. Meanwhile, fat cats feed at the public trough demanding and getting tax breaks and all sorts of subsidies. Doesn’t matter much who is power in Washington. The practice is largely bi-partisan. As Elaine Bernard says that should be spelled b-u- y. Interviewed by David Barsamian
