The same political faction that was clamoring to preserve the part of a financial sector bailout package that keeps CEO salaries as high as CEO’s can manage, unhindered by the will of the plebs, mere months ago, is now blocking an auto industry bailout because they don’t want union workers making any more money than non-union workers. Wealth, Labor.
I’m generally not the sort to strike people or even say overtly mean things, but I am going to shake my head in amused disbelief the next time somebody tells me that “conservatives” don’t like the nation’s “elites.” It’s not even a clandestine class war any more: when it’s the billionaires, one faction wants unlimited tax dollars going their way. When it’s auto workers, the same faction won’t budge until they can break up one of working people’s only sources of political and economic influence. Wealth, Labor.
This is not hard.
