With that said, everyone can be purchased, so perhaps he won't always be the same person. And I'm sure he does some shady things politically behind closed doors. Politics is cutthroat, and I'm sure he can't get by completely by giving out kevlar scarves to everyone.
I can definitely understand your thinking, but I respectfully disagree.

My thinking is that by doing this, he appears (and probably is) willing to take the rich man to task. And that seems to be what a lot of people want right now. For a young politician, that seems like a solid approach.
