Racist Keith Ellison (D-MN) Wants To Cut HUD And Green Investing!
Posted by cann0nba11 on January 7, 2013
Last week Kieth Ellison (D-MN) appeared on The Young Turks show (Al Jazeera Current TV) to talk about budget cuts. Here’s one of the things he had to say:
“…eliminating oil, gas and coal tax breaks and subsidies would leave “another $100 billion” in government coffers.” Then he added, “My point is, if Republicans want to do cuts, we should do cuts, but we’re not going to hurt America’s working class and poor to do it.”
According to the Cato Institute, the 2012 budget included about $97B in funding that is categorizes as “corporate welfare.” When you look at the report (something that Ellison and his supporters failed to do), you learn that there are lots of different categories. For example, of the $97B in the Cato report, $17B falls under the category of Dept. of Energy. Of that, almost $10B is for “Energy Supply and Conservation.”

Another example: The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Minority Business Development Agency are considered corporate welfare.

What about green investment? Corporate welfare also includes the Advanced Technology Vehicles Manufacturing Loan program.

Seriously… this is how the headlines would appear if any Republican even hinted at cutting government programs that touched minorities or the environment. Just look at the comments under the article I linked above to find examples of how utterly clueless many Americas are when it comes to facts and tax revenue.
Remember, emotion is the enemy of critical thought. Ellison’s emotional claim that we can cut $100B by cutting off evil energy companies is patently false. Liar, liar pants on fire false. America faces dark times, the last thing we want to be doing is promoting lies and distorting the truth.
