Why are Republicans against welfare for poor but ok with welfare for corporations and the rich?

They rail on about poor people getting welfare. But with these bailouts, they're basically telling these CEOs and brokers, "hey we know you made risky and unwise decisions trying to make more money for yourself, but go ahead and keep the commissions you made and we the taxpayer will buy all the bad debt off you so your balance sheets are whole again." Why are we reinforcing bad behavior?
