Just some more thoughts:
Industry bailouts - GM and Chrysler, anyone?
Pork - Solyndra and about 30+ other failed "green" businesses with 500 million plus taxpayer dollars down the drain ring any bells?
Faith based initiatives - are just that, charities run by religious organizations. To suggest that's big government is ludicrous.
Ethanol mandate - was part of the Energy Independence and Security Act, itself part of the DEMOCRATIC Party's 100-Hour Plan during the 110th Congress. Although the tax credits and tariffs have expired, the mandate itself has not, allowing a market to remain in place for Obama's biofuel industry cronies.
Farm subsidies - introduced by DEMOCRATIC President Franklin D. Roosevelt in the 1930's.
