The federal government is above the law. They don't have to answer to anyone. They make laws that don't apply to them, they vote themselves pay raises while voting down th epay raises of others, they create programs that they don't have to pay for, they lie cheat and steal, and so on... It is sickening.
Examaple: the OBL pics. They get to see them but we don't. Why? Because we are peasants and commoners to them.
What would happen if you or me went to the store ad tried to buy groceries uding a debit card that was 14 trillion in the red?
They are all crooks. There is absolutely no accountability.
Add to that - they push Obamacare on the population; but keep their Cadillac Health Care for life. If Obamacare is so good; why don't the politicians join it?
Smacks of Elitism. It's the one lesson they learned from the example of the Soviet Union - Nationalized Healthcare isn't for everybody. The Soviet Politboro had the same substandard healthcare the peasants had - and ran the same risks of substandard medical practices (lack of sanitary measures; drunken doctors).
In America - the population which PAYS for Obamacare through taxes and penalties get Obamacare - and then, through taxes and penalties we pay for the premium 'Cadillac' coverage for the politicians.
Because they're 'better' than us?
Hardly. They're not.
It's because THEY make the rules.
We're cattle to them. No different than the peasantry in England and Europe in the Middle Ages.
So long as we support the lifestyles of the Politically Connected; they ignore us.
Once we stop? Whatever the reason (bankruptcy due to the economy)- they'll play their finger-pointing game in D.C.; tax those they can still tax; throw the rest of us taxpayer subsidized crumbs (rather than fix the problems in the economy so that jobs can be created)- and vote themselves raises and perks (and give the same to the 'connected' as favors) while the people they're supposed to be answerable to starve.
Hope and Change?
More like 'Dope and Mange'. Those who elected the theives are the dopes. Our future is as stable as a dog with Mange.
I don't like that analogy.
It reeks of misery.
ANYBODY with common sense for 2012!
