Headline: “Walmart and McDonald’s have the most workers on food stamps and Medicaid, new study shows”
Food stamps are a federal subsidy enabling low income people to get enough to eat. Companies like Walmart and McDonald’s are able to pay workers less because of this subsidy and the workers will still be nourished enough to keep working. Thus, this government subsidy is a subsidy to companies like Walmart and McDonald’s. Yet Republicans argue that electing Democrats will lead to socialism. Republicans are the real socialists, practicing socialism for big business.
