I have no doubt the big corporations will fade back quietly for a while until the mob goes home and then go on with business as usual, but it would be nice if they had to tiptoe around a little as they corrupt American politics. I also have no doubt the Republicans will forget all about this as soon as they get their piece of the pie and can’t throw accusations at Obama anymore. It’s nice while it lasts though.

But we free-market populists take whatever drippings we can get, and lip service from prominent Republicans on center stage is an improvement. Important Republicans typically shy away from attacks on big business, presumably for fear of alienating key donors and supporters.
