Nice Try, Congressman, But No Sucker From This Doctor...

Nice try, Congressman, but no sucker from this doctor for being a good boy while taking your medicine. When you have all sorts of ways to make and hide income from taxes, as is the case with everyone in Congress, you can afford to make magnanimous but misleading and disingenuous statements like this. Al Capone probably did not object when the price of a steak went up because he could make up the price difference by shaking someone down (usually the person who owned the restaurant). The Dems in Congress can afford to praise O-Care in spite of their own higher personal premiums because they can simply shake down a donor or legally take (steal) from their campaign funds to make up the difference. The average taxpayer does not make these kinds of magnanimous statements about how it actually feels good to get ripped off by O-Care because he/she cannot turn around and shake down someone else or steal from a slush fund to pay for the loss. It's easy to be philosophical when it costs you nothing. For those whom it costs in real dollars, magnanimity and philosophical musings give way to the reality and practicality of a shrinking income and diminished lifestyle. We are all happy for you, Congressman. In return, why cannot you express the least bit of empathy for those you voted to rip off?
