Mr. David W. Patti
Mr. David W. Patti President & CEO Pennsylvania Business Council
David W. Patti, former president of the Pennsylvania Business Council and now Chief Revenue Officer for the Lower Paxton Township-based marketing firm Sacunas, Inc., and a frequent political analyst on PCN, viewed the Trump victory not just as an "OMG" moment, but a "Holy …(string of curse words)" one.
"In hindsight, it was obvious, but everyone else was drinking the Kool-Aid and thinking it can't happen," Patti said. If you look at the context of the Clinton defeat, however, Patti noted, from Occupy Wall Street, the Black Lives Matter movement, and changes in median family income as health care, housing, education and food costs skyrocketed, the rage against the one-percenters was percolating at an often-hidden simmer. "The sense of alienation and disenfranchisement" was pervasive -a feeling among the working class that "no one listens to them." Patti pointed to one of the most popular T-shirts of campaign season that foreshadowed the election night surprise: a graphic with three check-off boxes: Republican, Democrat, or Pissed off. "Pissed off" clearly won the day. The time-honored stereotypes of Democrats and Republicans were turned on their heads in this election cycle, Patti explained. Patti recalled an insightful tweet: "The elites and the media took Donald Trump literally but not seriously. Patti said: "If he lets bygones be bygones with Paul Ryan," good things can happen. Patti also noted that Sen. Patti thinks bankers should advocate "not more regulation, but more effective regulation."
