Ryan: End Oil Subsidies and Corporate Welfare
Via the Politico: Ryan calls for ending oil subsidies
“We’re talking about reforming the safety net, the welfare system; we also want to get rid of corporate welfare. And corporate welfare goes to agribusiness companies, energy companies, financial services companies, so we propose to repeal all that,” Ryan said in response to a question about oil subsidies.
Now the question is: where are the specifics and where is the bill? One would think that there is some serious savings to be had here and that, unlike the Ryan Plan on Medicare, that cuts to subsidies would pass the Senate.
