Glenn Greenwald on the Populist "Lie"

Glenn Greenwald provides a compelling argument regarding populist leaders who argue for smaller government while actually helping fuel the division between beltway insiders and outsiders so that the power in DC actually never changes hands. Greenwald argues that it's in the hands of the corporations that benefit from government all while the populist radio personalities and others pretend that middle-class Americans are paying for programs that others (lower-income and other disenfranchised groups) benefit from. 

Greenwald purports that the real beneficiaries are the corporations with ties to the beltway.  Read his column,  then come back and tell us  what you think.
