America’s ruling class
They roam the halls of power in Washington like jackals in a feeding frenzy — predators in Gucci loafers and $4,000 suits.
They are the lobbyists, political action committee managers and special interest group hired guns — America’s real ruling class.
They write the checks to secure support from members of Congress and they write the bills that emerge as laws and land on the President’s desk for signature.
The health care vote headed for a Senate vote next week is a document produced by the health care industry lobbyists — the same health care industry that is spending a million dollars a day to exert absolute control over the legislation.
