When the people find that they can vote themselves money that will herald the end of the republic.
It’s a lie, the jobs they’re threatening to offshore don’t even exist. They’re just angry to lose their teat of taxpayer money.
But they won’t stay in Connecticut because the business taxes are too high. In other words, it’s cronyism all the way down. GE gets almost 3 Billion in taxpayer dollars and yet profits almost 15 billion. They don’t need the money.
Good. Make it dead.
The senators helping end this crony capitalist agency are: Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Ben Sasse, Pat Toomey, and Rand Paul
This entire situation is a perfect indicator of each politician’s feelings regarding crony capitalism.
Not a surprise to me. Did you really think that the woman who started her career by helping defend insurance companies against asbestos claims wasn’t merely a populist?
Maybe if they had to manage their own money, they wouldn’t have blown their travel budget the last 3 years by flying first class.
But of course. How else is she supposed to grab all the low information voters? And note that while she complains about corporations she supports the import-export bank, which pretty much just subsidizes corporations of the largest size.
And of course there’s her history of helping companies avoid worker asbestos claims.
And hey, if it actually serves a legitimate banking purpose, then let it be an independent, privately owned bank.
They’ve never been involved in a race before.
The biggest businesses all have at least some degree of a crony capitalism mindset, and, while there are Republicans who are crony capitalists, nearly all the Democrats at the top are, as well – if not more so.
I think the Republicans who have figured this out are only the tea-party members on the pro-market side, and the establishment Republicans on the other side who are trying to destroy the Tea Party. And the Republicans who haven’t figured this out don’t realize that they’re in the default position of supporting the pro-business community. Heck, even Obama’s pro-business.
