It is simple these elitist rich are trying to buy political influence and an exemption to the taxes and regulations that their competitors will face. In the case of Gates look to recent history. He was pretty much non political until Microsoft came to the attention of the Dept of Justice for monopolistic business practices he learned very quickly to buy influence. Buffet owns a rail road that hauls oil that othewrwise would be moved by the KL-pipline also ows about 100m in taxes.
