I hate unions, but have to admit maybe there was at one time perhaps a need for them. Such a need is rising today. Wouldn’t a “union” for tax payers be interesting....deciding how the money we give them is spent, and if they misuse it, we cut off their pay...as in go in strike in an organized fashion. WE HAVE THE MONEY...seems like there would be ultimate power with such an effort. The “parties” are part if the establishment, so voting no longer controls this. Something different is needed.

Who’s going to stop him? Who has (or even attempted to) in the past?

There is or was a National Taxpayers Union but it was mostly ineffectual and wimpy in the big leagues. I think they maintain a blog somewhere now.

Ef that! If I can’t get out of it, why should they?!

Because you (and the rest of us peasants) aren't part of the ruling establishment.

I have a feeling that the next revolution will be more like the French one in 1789.

Exactly! Congress has been passing laws for years and years that applies to everyone but them, even when they are no longer in office. They are citizens of this country as well and all laws passed by them should apply to them. Talk about a job with no consequences, but with many many perks. How many jobs offer that as well as 100% salary when out of office (even if only one term) Oh we need change all right but it needs to start in Washington with these creeps.

The Politburo always gets better medical care than the peasants.

***Now the President is promising to fix it all for them***

Ruling class... John Roberts [SCOTUS] canceled the Constitution when he ruled that the govt could force you to do anything it wants at risk of a penalty. This is why the health care bill has gone from 2,000 pages to 20,000 pages in two years; in two more years it will be 100,000 pages.

No one in this govt can be held responsible for anything - as long as they play along with the ruling class -- then great rewards will come their way [at the expense of the few who are still working and paying taxes.]

Has anyone noticed that the ruling class considers the Tea Party the enemy! Who is the Tea Party> The Tea Party is the group of people in this country who work and pay the bills.

Sooner or later FReepers are going to have to come to the realization that the Constitution is no longer in force... and it is doubtful that elections are going to overturn the ruling class. THINK STATE SECESSION!

Many staffers say they’ll have to quit Washington. These guys are professional government aids. If their boss loses an election some other congressman hires them.

My question is: If staffer gets fired or leaves for any reason, is he still exempt?

I was an Army intelligence analyst during the cold war. What do you think?

Our country is being divided between the party members and the hoi polloi, just like in the former USSR.
