Let’s have a reality check for the recent frustrating news about executives (bureaucrats) getting additional pay and bonuses.
If in any way people believe that our elected officials (politicians) are pulling the strings and are responsible thus culpable for this fiasco — think again.
We have seen so many recent examples of these mandarins getting obscene pay and benefits; we had better realize to whom the real power belongs.
The real power rests with the government civil servants; the so-called bureaucrats who run everything.
The politicians simply do as they are told, advised, coerced, influenced, cajoled or eventually brow-beaten.
There exists no elected official who has any will, political or otherwise, to change the system — it’s not in their interest.
They are simply there for a short time to get their two minutes of fame, outrageous stipend and lucrative pensions!
Let us pray!
