The Governing Class

Perhaps nothing better illustrates the premise that we are being governed by an oligarchy than President Obama saying of his Press Secretary,
“He's had a six-year stretch now where basically he's been going 24/7 with relatively modest pay.” We live in a society where the average annual wage of the working class is $42,000, where 20% have a part time job or no job at all, and for the governing class $172,000 per year is “relatively modest pay,” and so it is reasonable for him to quit in order to make some "real money."
