I couldn’t agree with Senator Rubio more. The GOP has consistently embraced crony capitalism, just like their Democrat brethren. The Republicans like weapons systems, the Dems like welfare programs. But both parties pick and choose. The object for both clubs is to separate tax dollars from the taxpayers to benefit those who will help a particular politician most. Many in Washington can’t even imagine Washington DC working in a different way.
Let’s hope Mr. Rubio is serious about taking on crony capitalism, there’s a lot of highway to cover before 2016
“I blame that primarily, quite frankly, on decisions made by the Republican Party in the past to embrace crony capitalism and corporate welfare as conservatism, when, in fact, that’s not what we’re about. We are about upward mobility. We’re about the true free enterprise system.” -Marco Rubio
We’ll be watching.
