The Saturday Sale
Our nation is for sale. Crony capitalists are making offers. K Street lobbyists are making their pitch. Foreigners giving millions to the Clinton Foundation think they will receive something for that money. Money is buying access, favor, and favors in Washington. Influence peddling may be criminal, but there are politicians getting by (or even getting rich) with it. Free enterprise is the greatest way to create and spread prosperity ever devised, but crony capitalism that benefits the few at the expense of the many is not free enterprise. Too many in the political class are involved in rent-seeking. Too many palms are being greased. Our political class have enriched their bundlers mightily while most Americans languish in hard economic times.
