The current administration in Washington sees their job as protecting and building the assets of the rich. The very fact that the rich are rich is justification for their protection.  Like saving the King at all costs. Perhaps many in Congress have bought into the frame that this is a heroic rescue of society for the benefit of all. Most think they are doing their job as well as they can.  The rest of society is just a PR problem.
