DaTech Guy watches the battle between Establishment and Tea Party - and sees nothing he didn't expect.
Power is congress is based on the ability to grant favors. The
reasons millions of dollars are spent on lobbyists is because the votes
on the house & senate floor, the spending on the White House can
make or break a business and pay rewards many times what the cost of
their investment is.
It’s one thing for the Establishment to get Tea Party votes in a
special election but it’s another thing if they actually manage to
change the culture of Washington, suddenly the revolving door from
congress to wealth closes and that they can’t abide.
