Sorry, I don't consider corporate welfare and subsidies conservative economics. I am aware of the hypocrisy of some so-called conservatives who do not see the conflict, but I do, as do most conservatives I know. I don't favor gov't intertwined with business, picking and choosing which business/industry gets political favors and who does not. Just because a policy is favored by someone with an (R) next to their name does not make that policy conservative.
