The lines between corporate America and the federal government are seriously blurring. But sadly this what people voted for this past November.
Take this for example:
According to The Intercept, Delrahim has spent the last decade working in the private sector on merger deals and is considered to be very corporate friendly in such matters. As The New York Times puts it, he flippantly believes that “a monopoly is perfectly legal until it abuses its monopoly power.” For about 12 years, he has worked for the law firm Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, which just happens to be registered to lobby on Amazon’s behalf.
I’m not saying that the Obama administration was devoid of corporate influence but we’re headed to a whole new level.
