The people in power have no earthly idea about the middle class, because most never were middle class. Those who were have long since forgotten the days when they were not plugged in, and did not have the good contacts that make money without risk. Politics is the art of cultivating those contacts, dining with them in tony Georgetown restaurants, and taking money from them.
Running the country is secondary for all of them, save a few that really embrace public service. Do you seriously believe that Donald Trump is one of those people?
