Hey Mr. Packer, check out
Federalist No. 57

August 19, 2017 --

LPR recommending Federalist No. 57 to Media Elitist George Packer, who wrote a nasty piece in The New Yorker, October 31, 2016 that said, among other things, that Trump’s voters “tend to be less educated….(whatever that means): in particular, Madison’s assertion that the voters are “Not the rich more than the poor; not the learned more than the ignorant; not the haughty heirs of distinguished names, more than the humble sons of obscure and unpropitious fortune.”

No. 57 also notes that members of the House of Representatives “can make no law which will not have its full operation on themselves and their friend, as well as on the great mass of society.”

So what’s this about Congress not being subject to the severe treatment that has afflicted “the great mass of society” concerning Obamacare?
