Damn greedy politicians, robbing those poor capitalists and their hungry robot children!

Politicians respond to the noise from the people. So if we make enough noise on a topic, they will respond.

And what the fuck do you want from them, if this is how you describe... giving money to people?

I'm responding to beambot's comment that this idea "is senseless". But politicians aren't prioritizing 'sense', they prioritize power and money. Of course they need to get Money In, or they can't run the government. But not all methods of "money in" are sensible. So, they toss stuff out and do some opinion polls and eventually make some choices. But the noise of the people does matter.

You're responding to measured criticism with kneejerk blanket statements.
