Because Paul Ryan, who has literally never held an actual job outside of politics, is better than you normal Americans
“All contributions by corporations to any political committee or for any political purpose should be forbidden by law; directors should not be permitted to use stockholders’ money for such purposes; and, moreover, a prohibition of this kind would be, as far as it went, an effective method of stopping the evils aimed at in corrupt practices acts. Not only should both the National and the several State Legislatures forbid any officer of a corporation from using the money of the corporation in or about any election, but they should also forbid such use of money in connection with any legislation save by the employment of counsel in public manner for distinctly legal services.”
~ Theodore Roosevelt, 1905
Senator Joe McCarthy who did so much to dampen the appeal of Progressive politics in the United States for his own narcisistic reasons have been dead for 60 years, and died in disgrace, Bernie Sanders who ran a rather half-hearted campaign made the term “Socialist” alot less scary, though “New Deal Democrat” or “Progressive Democrat” I still a much better term for for those who seek a Progressive future.
