Kushner and Ivanka: freedom (every man for himself) used to drive inequality: democracy's auto-immune disease.

According to ethics experts, their various sources of income raise serious questions about potential conflicts of interest.

This article, from the Washington Post includes the following excerpt....

"In a wide-ranging interview in late May with the Real Deal, a New York City real estate publication, Kushner’s father derided ethics watchdogs as “jerks” who “can’t get a real job” and suggested that the criticism may discourage rich and successful people from taking government positions.

“I look at what my kids have sacrificed to go into government, with the only intent of doing good for this country and for the world, and to help people,” Charles Kushner told the Real Deal. “And what they have sacrificed, and the daily barrage of negative media, and the attacks they get, and they had a perfect, beautiful life and they still have a very good life, but they sacrificed a lot.”
