"They were just burning off a bunch of spare government money."

Get the government out of the private sector - no corporate welfare for Tesla, or any energy company, either!

No tax loopholes for oil companies, no discounts for drilling on federal lands.

No corporate welfare for nuclear, fossil, hydro, wind or solar.

No corporate welfare for insurance companies - no more Medicare Plus handing tax dollars over to for profit insurance companies.

Charge big pharma for research done at publicly funded schools!

Also don't allow lobbyists for the largest corporations to bribe legislators to write laws that restrict startups and small businesses from entering markets dominated by large corporations.
