If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

confused?

Let me get this straight. We're going to be "gifted" with a health care plan we are forced to purchase and fined if we don't.

Written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn't understand it, passed by a Congress that hasn't read it but exempts themselves from it.

Signed by a president who also smokes,with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn't pay his taxes, to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese, and financed by a country that's broke.

What the hell could possibly go wrong with this plan?
