Michael Barone writes thoughtfully about what kind of wealth gives you voting clout.
It used to be owning farmland. (Now 2% of the population, farmers are still subsidized)
Then owning houses. ( 98% of the population live off the farm. Housing is subsidized with deductions and the two "Fannies".)
Something nimbler is coming along. (To be subsidized by its stakeholders)
