You sillies act like welfare for the poor actually requires a large budget (and is useless).
Corporate welfare is in the trillions. Where's the crying about that?
I know it's the cool thing to hate on poor people whether they work hard or not, but you've just fallen into the govt's trap. That's what they want you to do (distraction - like left vs right). Congratulations. You just supported the system you claim to despise.
Think of it this way: Poor people don't ruin the world. The ultra-wealthy exist by making/keeping people poor. They're the one's ruining everything. They want more for themselves and less for everyone else. Our social, educational, and judicial systems all prove this. They are now designed to make sure that it's extremely difficult to get ahead in life.
Now, on topic, this is why this law was created. Billionaires are not pleased with their fortunes and want more. They could care less how this affects anyone except themselves. It's the easiest and cheapest route, as they see it, for gain. Why create quality content? Or ask a reasonable price for their product? Or allow easier methods of acquisition for consumers? Nah, that might relinquish control and potentially abate profits (even though it's proven to do the opposite, see MPAA history). It's better for them to just bribe politicians. No risk, no frills, no work, just ruin lives for petty gain. They're vacuous dinosaurs with insatiable greed. A failing economic system that they support means nothing to them, except potential for more green. They don't care if the consumers have no money to buy their product in the future - they'll be dead or rich beyond comprehension.
