Corporate welfare in its many, varied and broad guises?

Or is it all basically what is being wasted on some indolent underclass of "others" (certainly not you, I or anyone we associate with.), "takers" beyond any real hope of redemption that must simply be cast off to the wilderness to fend for themselves?

How many then, too, are contributing to our society in all the varied ways (taxes of all forms, fees, duties, etc.) in support of our general welfare?
