152. I agree with the OP. Our hypocrisy hurts us. We have to expect
Edited on Sat Jan-27-07 01:43 AM by Morereason
more from our leaders, including living like the rest of us. Let me give an example:

If our representatives were only given the same health care as the rest of us would it make a difference in the health care bills that came before congress?

Someone who lives in a huge mansion with personal staff (um servants), is NEVER going to be able to completely understand the life of the rest of us. And that is setting aside the fact that we cannot sustain all of the huge lifestyles of the rich that and upper middle class forever that we already do.

I would be willing to bet if he drove a hummer you would have a real hard time with it. What exactly is the difference? None. In fact that large house has the equivilent ecological effects of 20 hummers to one car (his mansion to one moderate house).
