Over these last weeks we have heard Republicans make personal attacks of various Democrats and vice versa for bringing us to the point of a government shutdown. It was mystifying to most Americans as to why this happened. Our focus was on the individuals involved, President Obama, Ted Cruz, etc. But, perhaps, we are all a victim of sleight of hand on the part of our politicians.
We all accept that politicians are often little more than puppets at the end of a long corporate string. If so, then the real question is who are the corporations and people of wealth that would allow this country to face insolvency and why? That’s the question The Bee should look into. We need and have the right to know.
