I literally want the more expensive guy.
He is responsible and accountable. i.e..People WILL pay a little more for better service.
PK (answering bosses phone because his hands were elbow deep in a marine boiler): Hello?
Customer: Yes...I need to have the steam unit on my steam shower replaced.

are conflicting opinions.The rich, like any other special interest, has surely gotten their fingers in that pie as well, but it's a big pie, with a lot of fingers in it, and a lot of social engineers baking it. It should also be pointed out that "the rich" are also as politically and socially diverse in their politics as any other group.
I think most of us would be well served if we forget the notion that politics is driven by some sort of principle belief system (Liberals want socialism/ Conservatives want zero govt) and accept the fact that special interests run both parties and that the money flows from hand to pocket to hand to trough. No one who has any real power is interested in spending cuts, simplifying the tax code or anything else probably 98% of the posters here are interested in the gov't actually doing.
it isn't a left right thing where one party is the hero and the other is the villain, it's money and favors and bribes and pork and all sorts of infuriating ****.
I know this had nothing really to do with your post, but I digressed. I'm in an angry cycle these days.

They lose pretty much every tie-breaker out there.
They need to control a game from beginning to end before I get impressed with any victory from here on out.
