Quite interesting was the article in Sunday’s edition by Anjeanette Damon on the super PACs (thank you, Chief Justice John Roberts) and some of their major donors. However, the unanswered question is: Just what did they want for their tens of millions of dollars? Ever lower tax rates with more loopholes? A direct line to the president, along with one to Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan and John Boehner? To implement more risky financial schemes? Around 150 years ago, the railroad “robber barons” worked to have the best Congress money can buy. A new generation of “barons” seems to be trying to reinvent that.
