What “Deep State” is to intelligence, military intervention, and foreign policy – The “BIG CLUB” is to matters of domestic economics…Read more here.
Politicians do not write laws. Paul Ryan, Nancy Pelosi, Mitch McConnell and Chuck Schumer do not sit in their offices writing out scripts of laws and legislation; no politician does. Politicians are faces who sell legislation that unseen hands create. The Big Club are the administrators creating the legislation.
As such, it makes no sense to argue about the salesmanship of Mitch McConnell, Chuck Schumer, Ted Cruz or Elizabeth Warren when none are originating the legislative constructs they are selling and branding in the media.
It simply makes much more sense to focus attention on the unseen hands that are never discussed, the administrative state. These are the roots of the issues, the politicians are merely the expendable and interchangeable sales force.
...for the sake of ObamaCare outcomes the two that matter are: “Big Labor” (AFL-CIO, SEIU, AFSCME, UFCW etc), and Wall Street (U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Tom Donohue).
...Having lost TPP, Go8 and Common Core, there was no way Tom Donohue is going to accept losing his biggest investment to date, ObamaCare.
...♦ Big Labor support ObamaCare for a few reasons. #1 it granted fiscal stability to their retirement programs which were failing with the increased costs of providing healthcare coverage. #2 it creates additional profit margin space within union companies for more lucrative compensation contracts. And #3 ideologically it was constructed to eventually end up with a single-payer system. All three points are great for Big Labor.
♦ Wall Street supports ObamaCare because it: #1 removes the cost of providing healthcare from the cost of producing products in the U.S. [However, you’ll note the consumer price of manufactured goods never actually decreases, instead the savings go to the profit margin.] #2 allows the manufacturing cost equity to streamline globalization efforts.
Once in office, President Trump worked around Donohue and went to the manufacturing and business community directly.
Now Trump is highlighting how deregulation, tax policy and other pro-growth America-First objectives will more than compensate the business community for any ObamaCare recall.
The battle/negotiation visible in the media is the stuff going on amid the Big Club’s sales people, the politicians. However, the REAL ObamaCare removal negotiation is going on behind the scenes where the Trump Administration is taking on the administrative state, The Big Club, directly…
