In an op-ed in the Nashua Telegraph, Daniel Weeks writes:
Our problem today is not a broken government but a beholden one: government is more beholden to special-interest shareholders who fund campaigns than it is to ordinary voters. Like any sound investor, the funders seek nothing more and nothing less than a handsome return – deficits be darned – in the form of tax breaks, subsidies and government contracts.
This is pretty much what I’ve been saying for a long time now. The same thing could be said about the economy as well as the government.
One thought on “Government isn’t broken”
Right, the government works just fine for the few people who own it, just not for the majority of the people.
