In the end, we are probably thinking of this as a problem for the monied classes, when it is probably just another chess move in the game of squeezing all the assets out of the middle class. They probably don't see any of these marbles dropping on the floor as a problem at all.

U.S. Constitution: Article I
Clause 18. Necessary and Proper Clause
The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;
bla bla bla
To make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of the United States, or in any Department or Officer thereof.
Bla bla...but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments.
And thus is the basis for the whateverthefucktheywanttodotoprotecttheirdonorsClause
Never underestimate their intelligence, always underestimate their knowledge.
