Giving Us the Business

I didn't watch Hillary tonight, since the Phillies and Mets are engaged in a war of attrition (it's 7-7 in the 12th as I write this). But Jonah Goldberg wrote something that struck me...
Hillary tonight:

We need a president who understands that we can't solve the problems of global warming by giving windfall profits to the oil companies while ignoring opportunities to invest in the new technologies that will build a green economy.
Again, whatever you think of so-called "windfall profits" they aren't "given" to corporations.
Couldn't have said it better. A corporation earns profits. Perhaps Hillary is confused because she's been in government too long. After all, people are forced to give the government taxes, instead of having the government earn that money.
