Oops, said Mike, Did I real­ly admit this?

One of President’s “only the best” appoint­ments, for­mer Con­gress­man Mike Mul­vaney ®, gave inad­ver­tent sup­port to a recent Gallup Poll that revealed only 18% of those polled felt Con­gress was doing a good job. “We had a hier­ar­chy in my office in Con­gress,” said Mul­vaney, who was a lead­ing con­ser­v­a­tive in the House until Pres­i­dent Trump tapped him to be the White House bud­get direc­tor, a job he still holds. “If you were a lob­by­ist who nev­er gave us mon­ey, I didn’t talk to you. If you were a lob­by­ist who gave us mon­ey, I might talk to you.” From Wash­ing­ton Post, April 25, 2018. Online. Sub­mit­ted by Mal­colm McIn­tyre.

Demo­c­ra­t­ic Guber­na­to­r­i­al can­di­date Mike McCabe is no fan of Cit­i­zens Unit­ed and the US Supreme Court deci­sion that says Cor­po­ra­tions are peo­ple and thus have a free to free speech. In his book, on page 99, McCabe’s quotes Thomas Jef­fer­son.

I hope we shall … crush in its birth the aris­toc­ra­cy of our monied cor­po­ra­tions which dare already to chal­lenge our gov­ern­ment to a tri­al of strength and bid defi­ance to the laws of our coun­ty.”  Marx? Lenin? Also not Mao or Cas­tro. Thomas Jef­fer­son, in a let­ter to George Logan, Nov. 12, 1816. As ref­er­enced in “Blue Jeans in High Places;: The Com­ing Makeover of Amer­i­can Pol­i­tics,” by Mike McCabe.Published Lit­tle Creek Press, 2015.
