The Deep State Hiding In Plain Sight!

Mike Lofgren, a congressional staff member for 28 years, joins Bill Moyers to talk about what he calls Washington’s “Deep State,” in which elected and unelected figures collude to protect and serve powerful vested interests. “It is how we had deregulation, financialization of the economy, the Wall Street bust, the erosion of our civil liberties and perpetual war,” Lofgren tells Moyers. He goes on to say, “The real ‘deep state’ is about corporate power, not entrenched bureaucrats.” This right-wing catchphrase supposedly describes rebellious government workers. But moneyed influencers are the real “deep state.”
