The Donor Class, 4/20/20
The bailout, who got bailed out, the donor class. The monied elites who fund the duopoly of patronage and influence peddling were taken care of and the nobodies, the little people who make up the majority of jobs in local business got in line and wound up at the back of it..
How could this happen? The members of Congress of both parties are not stupid and they negotiated a bailout that bailed out the people who guarantee their elections.
The political class took care of their own, their donors. The little people, they have no skin in the game. They’re in line behind Harvard with a 41 billion endowment, lots of alumni clout. Money talks, promises tend to be empty, from the political class, depends on their self interest, in a country where the rich and their corporations are the important constituents.
