Oregon, My Oregon

Fox, Oregon Sen. Ron Wyden's millionaire son blasts dad and 'cronies' for hating the 'American dream'

Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden of Oregon and his “cronies” were blasted by the senator’s multimillionaire son for hating the “American dream.”

Adam Wyden, the Oregon Democrat’s son and a multimillionaire hedge fund manager, put his dad on blast in a Sunday night tweet.

The younger Wyden torched legislators for trying to “mindlessly and haphazardly” take things apart.

“Why does he hate us / the American dream so much?!?!?!?!” the Florida-based hedge fund manager wrote. “Reality is: most legislators have never built anything… so I guess it’s easier to mindlessly and haphazardly try and tear stuff down.”

“Thankfully, I think I can compound faster than my dad and his cronies can confiscate it…” Wyden added.

Ron Wyden has been in Oregon politics since before I left the state, have been elected to the House in 1980, and getting his Senate seat in 1996 in a special election after the political hit job on Bob Packwood.

They voted  poorly, and they've been doing it for a long time.
