Government funnels $ to @politico. Seems like an obvious potential conduit for corruption. http://t.co/bc89GJspY2 http://t.co/7ZyVSZjwpt

.@kausmickey Govt $$ for @politico is sort of like oil companies' funding of climate research.

.@Reticulator: remember my 3/16 tweet to you? Couldn't Kaus have got Coulter to offer $10,000 to someone willing to stop amnesty?

Instead of nativism and protectionism, why not work on fixing the economy? Or have we abandoned that entirely? @kausmickey @Reticulator

.@Wojciehowicz @kausmickey I was open towards immigration until I saw how the corporate crony class uses it to suppress economic opportunity

No, they do not. People have a million excuses for abandoning any focus on the economy, giving up, surrendering. @Reticulator @kausmickey

.@Wojciehowicz @kausmickey Corporate cronies keep supporting corporate welfare and big government, which kills opportunity.

Companies keeping their own money isn't welfare. We need to slash all taxes and rates. @Reticulator @kausmickey

.@Wojciehowicz @kausmickey I'm not talking about companies keeping their own money. I'm talking about corporate welfare.

Corporate welfare has one definition and it was invented by the left: corporations not being taxed enough. @Reticulator @kausmickey

.@Wojciehowicz @kausmickey The WSJ has been railing against true corporate welfare for decades. (Mostly cheap talk, though.)

.@Reticulator: hey John, support amnesty or not, are there more things Kaus could have done to stop it? Anything he didn't do?

.@24AheadDotCom_ How am I supposed to know something like that? I don't monitor him 24x7.

.@Reticulator: you don't have to monitor @KausMickey 24/7 - you don't have a trust fund like him I assume - to know he could have done more.

.@Reticulator: @KausMickey could have asked his special friend Coulter to offer $10,000 instead of $350: http://t.co/IAqkPrAQ5b That'd do it
