Mitch McConnell And His Oligarchic Constituency
It’s a comforting realization that Senator Mitch McConnell, while attending a Koch Brothers hosted conference, told a crowd of millionaires and billionaires that they don’t have to worry about him wasting time on “gosh darn” things like voting on a minimum wage increase. It’s always good to see a member of congress looking out for his constituents. And in the newly christened oligarchy, formerly known as the United States of America, those constituents pay no less than $5,000 a plate.
