One reads that F. James Sensenbrenner, the pro-Trump septuagenarian multimillionaire congressman from a gerrymandered district that stretches all the way down to Whitewater, is retiring when his current term ends. Consigned to the minority forever must look unappealing.
How time flies! It was not long ago that then-chairman of the Whitewater Community Development Authority was scampering off to thank Sensenbrenner in person for a portion of the Trump tax bill. See The Trump Tax Bill: The Illusory Pay Bump and ‘Our Guy’ Isn’t Our Guy.
The former’s now out of office and the latter soon will be. These changes will leave Sensenbrenner plentiful opportunities for reminiscing over the manipulation of free markets, with moments left for complaining that he was never adequately appreciated by ordinary men and women who should damn well have known better.
