Music Video : Arlo Guthrie is (Still) Changing His Name to Chrysler

I’m Changing My Name to Chrysler
Performed by Arlo Guthrie. Lyrics by Tom Paxton.

“Corporate welfare-the enormous and myriad subsidies, bailouts, giveaways, tax loopholes, debt revocations, loan guarantees, discounted insurance and other benefits conferred by government on business-is a function of political corruption. Corporate welfare programs siphon funds from appropriate public investments, subsidize companies ripping minerals from federal lands, enable pharmaceutical companies to gouge consumers, perpetuate anti-competitive oligopolistic markets, injure our national security, and weaken our democracy.”Ralph Nader in “Cutting Corporate Welfare.”

    I’ve loved this tune for years, but how sad that it is once again spot on with regard to actual govt. practices.
