What fun it is to see Independent U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders enter the 2016 race for president. Look at his indictment of wealthy CEOs for helping their institutions grab impossible amounts of cash from the U.S. Treasury on the backs of the once-great U.S. middle class.
These takers of the national wealth rationalize their theft of billions, perhaps convincing themselves, if no one else, of their own “business savvy” — like Riley Gore, in Carla Rising, a cheating coal company bookkeeper-turned-politician.
No doubt these men and their businesses kick the billions back into the election campaigns of docile U.S. candidates — Senators, Congressmen and next year’s other presidential candidates — who would change nothing.
The money these men — they are all men — take from the government is nothing short of obscene. What would any of us do with a multimillion-dollar tax refund?
