Even the most corrupt corporations create wealth for individuals and taxes for governments.
I certainly do not condone corruptions in any way shape or form, but only a very small percentage of people in even the most corrupt corporations, including Enron, WorldCom and all of the others, were corrupt. The vast percentages were and still are hard working, honest and decent taxpayers.
Let’s not forget that not everyone that worked for these corporations over the years lost all there money. On the contrary, many became rich, without being part of the corruption and many are now involved in other businesses including startups that are supplying jobs and taxes.
As for corporate welfare, it too creates wealth and taxes for honest and decent citizens. Most of the money created via tax subsidies and loopholes, contrary to what the liberals would try to lead you to believe, finds it way right back out into the public sector in the way of wages and those wages are taxed, meaning the so called corporate welfare money, is in large, returned to the treasury. Not necessarily a perfect system in all situations for sure, but some do believe it beats the confiscation of wealth to be handed out via undeserving welfare to deadbeats.
