They're smart businessmen, if they didn't get a very good return they wouldn't invest.
They have engineered low taxes, low wages, lax regulation and minimal oversight. They have engineered partisan gridlock which benefits only them. They have engineered for themselves a virtual Utopia where they cannot fail, where the streets are paved with gold.
The reason we can't have nice things in the USA is because they don't pay taxes.
News just broke about how little the wealthy actually pay...not just billionaires...the top 1% benefits most, but the top 10% need s to be looked at because when you make your income from investments you pretty much pay no tax.
