He was the lesser evil one. The really evil one has had sole control for the past few years.
So, it's more of a "ding" not quite a full "ding-dong the witch is dead".

Extreme wealth like that has so much momentum that it will keep steamrollering along, long after the corpse that was steering it has been forgotten. :(

As the child of a rich, white, male Republican I think I get a good window into how they think. They believe that private investment is so much better at growing the economy than public programs, that every dollar taxed is inherently a dollar wasted. Most of them admit that roads and bridges should be handled by government, but they can always find an excuse for not wanting to fund a particular project.
They keep having a go at the light rail* system here.

*glorified trolley - there's only one line . . .

Rich anarcho-libertarians don't like publicly funded things.
