I scratch my head when the "ruling elite" is brought up. Who is this ruling elite? The Bush family? They gave us Iraq. Houseing crash? Deregulation gave us that. Obamacare? Well that was a weird mix of responsibility.

Oh perhaps power brokers? Sure.

But where does trust come into it? No one is suggesting trust as a good basis for decision making.

The Big Club.... and you ain't in it.
Big amounts of Federal money into programs, only to get HUGE kickbacks to fund their campaigns and slush funds for grifters.

The left is surely in your head, you woke early this morning posting divisive talk. You probably eat breathe and sleep this stuff, and couldn't Wait to get posting stuff. I bet you haven't even had breakfast yet.

Just more right wing talking point. Trump is the ultimate ruling elite, and he's the president.

That is why they have tried to deny and then remove Trump from "their club".

Trump screwed it all up - Hillary Clinton

Nope. Bill Clinton signed the Iraq Liberation Act in 1998. The goal: to depose Saddam Hussein.

Housing crash? Deregulation gave us that.
Nope. That was caused by the lowered lending standards announced by HUD's Cuomo (Clinton era) requiring that Fannie and Freddie buy $2.4 trillion worth of home loans made to high-risk borrowers. Barney Frank even admitted it (after he retired from Congress, of course) in a 2013 C-SPAN broadcast.

Obamacare did nothing more than guaranty profits to insurance companies by requiring that everyone buy insurance.

Sshhhhhhhh, you're destroying the DNC narrative.

Big government is part and parcel of the elite ruling class.

Most government regulations are geared at raising the cost of starting a business which is meant to reduce competition against large corporations.

Again Trump is the ultimate ruling elite. He gets to veto rules he don't like, a billionaire who wouldn't roll with the little guy, he wouldn't be caught dead socializing with you and most of his supporters, except at a rally. He wants to buy Greenland. He is in an elite group of people, the billionaires club.
