Our favorite points from the Justice for All project:

  • Corporate welfare accounted for more than $167 billion in government giveaways in 1995 alone. Giant corporations such as McDonald's and Pillsbury have received millions of taxpayer dollars to advertise their products overseas. Oil and mining companies have reaped huge profits by gaining cheap access to public lands.
  • One of the myths of corporate welfare is that corporations use government giveaways to create more jobs. In 1995, the 500 largest U.S.-based corporations slashed 400,000 jobs from their payrolls. Sheesh!
