    Their 1% entitlements like:
    Executive bonus stock option tax write offs that saved a $1.1.Bn  profit company from paying ANY taxes and even getting a $400+Mn refund... That company is FaceBook.

    Development abd Research costs writeoff and Federal grants: Drug and Gas & Oil companies.

    Great deals on profits from drugs that are not allowed to become "generic..... Thanks Washington!

    Offshore and onshore drilling leases that are on VERY favorable terms to the Industry. Thanks State and Federal lawmakers.

    All you 1%ers can add your Entitlements as you wish, all you have to do is fund a thinktank or six and have them write the legislation that bakes your entitlements into law [Alec] and then get your trainied dogs in the local, state, and federal legislatures to pass them for you.

    It has been said that the definition of an honest politician is one who stays bought and refuses other offers to change their vote. I believe that that is pretty accurate.
