Jeb! Campaign Says It’s All About The Little People
Jeb Bush is scheduled to announce the formal beginning of his 2016 campaign for the Republican presidential campaign tomorrow. Actually, John Ellis Bush has been campaigning for weeks now, in illegal coordination with a Super PAC that takes unlimited amounts of money from corporations and wealthy families, but hey, what is the law to the members of a dynastic political family that has included both of the two most recent Republican U.S. presidents? Law, schmaw.
Basic plausibility doesn’t seem to matter much to Jeb Bush either. In a statement intended to encourage voters to support his campaign just before it officially begins, Bush says, “My core beliefs start with the premise that the most vulnerable in our society should be in the front of the line, not the back.”
If Jeb Bush really believes that the most vulnerable in our society should be in the front of the line, how come he is using the power he inherited from his elite family, plus the power of the corporations and wealthy oligarchs who are giving him his money, to budge his way to the front of the line? Why isn’t Jeb Bush helping someone who wasn’t born with a million dollar trust fund to run for President?
Jeb Bush appears to believe that corporate executives and inheritors of family fortunes are the most vulnerable people in America, because that’s who his policies are designed to help most.
Jeb Bush wants to cut Social Security and Medicare while giving tax cuts to billionaires and subsidies to gigantic, profitable corporations. That’s not helping the vulnerable. It’s the same old corrupt business as usual.
