Political figures often speak of the "job creators" as small business owners. 

But when it comes to doling out government dollars in subsidies, the big businesses are often first in line.  That's the finding of the non-profit research center Good Jobs First, based in Washington, DC.  A report generated by the group called "Subsidizing the Corporate One Percent" catalogs the subsidies and who receives them.
