Greg Kaufmann: The Real 'Welfare Queens'

States are giving unprecedented tax breaks to corporations—but unlike welfare recipients, Nation writer Greg Kaufmann says, "nobody's talking about drug-testing them." Kaufmann joins a panel on The Melissa Harris-Perry Show to break down the hypocrisies of government largesse.
