Quote 14 Sep 50 notes
The U.S. system of government has produced what is known as a dual-welfare system. Programs for the poor are termed relief, welfare, assistance, or charity. Programs for the rich, however, are called tax expenditures, subsidies, price supports, parity and the like.

The dual-welfare system is an integral part of the higher immorality, allowing the rich to become richer at the expense of the middle class and the poor. Mark Zepezauer and Arthur Naiman have recently put the costs of the corporate welfare at $448 billion, “about 3.5 times as much as the $130 billion we spend yearly for the poor.” Such “wealthfare” includes subsidies, tax deductions, tax exemptions, tax-free investments, excessive government pensions, and $172 billion worth of fraud and waste in the Defense Department.
