The term "Corporate Welfare" is a misnomer. It implies that Corporations are just getting free money.
What is refered to as Corporate Welfare is really just programs that the government supports to promote specific areas of development. It might not be a good idea, but it is common and Obama uses it to try to promote unpopular "green" programs.
On the other hand the idea that people cannot receive free money for life and have to get some kind of job at some point, and idea that received bi-partisan support during the Clinton Administration, was now arbitrarily ended by Obama. He needs to make sure that people know that he will pay for their votes, and pay for them with your tax dollars!
