Read the numbers below and weep–This comes to around $1 trillion in cuts to people that do not need them.

This info has been share with me per email today. Read and weep!!!!–KAS

Here are a few things that could be cut from the budget instead of hurting the elderly, children, disabled, poor and education:

Oil companies get $39 billion in subsidies!!!!!
Tax cuts to the rich cost $133 billion!!!!!
Corporate tax loopholes cost $660 billion!!!!!
Factory Farm Subsidies:
……….Direct Payments = $5 billion
……….Marketing Loans $1 – $7 Billion
……….Counter cyclical Payments $1 – $4 billion
……….Conservation Subsidies $3 billion
……….There are more, but you get my point

This comes to around $1 trillion in cuts to people that do not need them. These cuts would not hurt anyone, let alone the people that are already hurting.
