Gov. Mike Huckabee "Washington to Wall Street Access of Power"
Gregory asked former Gov. Mike Huckabee a question about corporate money in the political process controlling the country. Huckabee addressed the problem of "donor class feeding political class" with money, but also adds he hopes there's a nice donor class to help him if he runs for president who won't expect him to provide favors which results in corporate cronyism.
"The problem, and I’ve spoken about this so often, is that there is a Washington to Wall Street access of power, in which the donor class feeds the political class, who then dances the tune of the donor class, who then demands that the donor class more funding for more tunes."
"Because the same donor class that are giving to one are giving to the other, and they’re taking care of themselves. It’s not just corporations, it’s the broader sense of the donor class. Now, frankly I hope there’s going to be a pretty nice donor class to help me if I run for president, certainly more than there was before."
