That’s what happens when you’re not paying all of your attention to politics, rather than governing.

Why does everything that we do in the American society HAVE to make money?
Why can’t healthcare and medicine be a mandatory “not for profit” thing, as opposed to a for profit enterprise?
Why do we always have to do what the business leaders want, when it comes at the absolute expense of the society and the people who actually make the money and compose the society they make their money off of?

That’s the joke that’s played on the rich.
And it’s all thanks to the condition of their brains that it works like that.
