Why Government Only Does Things For The Wealthy & Big Corporations

One reason is because everyone understands that there is a big check waiting for them later if they “play ball.”

Example: Ex-Obama Aides Attended Oil Industry-Sponsored Azerbaijan Conference,

Jim Messina, the former Obama 2012 campaign manager, Robert Gibbs, the former White House press secretary, and David Plouffe, the former Obama senior adviser, all received five-figure checks to deliver remarks at the event.

5-figure checks to “deliver remarks.” It adds up.

Big names get the biggest checks, of course. Lobbying jobs, “speaking fees,” etc. But members of a legislator’s staff move over to a lobbying firm or big corporation and get good 6-figure jobs.
