Mitt Romney and his ilk always talk about the “free market forces.” If he and his ilk think this is a “free market,” they need to go back to school. These corporations taking money along with the very wealthy are the not-so-new welfare queens. When our illustrious congress, along with Bill Clinton decided to “reform” welfare, somehow they missed these greedy deadbeats.

What this article reveals is that the right wing “frame” being used to convince us that there is a “transfer of wealth” occurring in America is actually true! It just so happens that this transfer of wealth is taking place in the opposite direction from what Fox news and other corporately controlled media outlets are suggesting. The real transfer of wealth taking place is in an upward direction, from all of us to a select few of them!
