The rodents who make these promises certainly don't give a rats ass about what will ultimately have to be born by working people; after these people get what they want.
And now the former leader of the rat hordes (and most of his minions), of a house that actually used to represent something, is slinking off the sinking ship, and heading back to the money making circuit to wait for you to forget what he has done. And because him, and his cohorts, will undoubtedly create a great deal more chaos, economic and otherwise, you will, in all likelihood, forget. Forget enough at least so that when he rebrands himself two or three years down the road you will be poised to be re-sucker punched again.
Ain't this process just grand.
