Remember, folks, it's do what we say, not as we do. You know, like when 20% of the latest Obamacare waivers go to gourmet restaurants in Nancy Pelosi's district. Congresswoman's gotta eat, ya know?
So, let's reiterate: from my point of view, progressives and liberals think that government power is OK; the reason things go wrong is because of politicians buckling to Evil Welfare-Absorbing Corporations. As soon as we find some politicians with a backbone, everything'll be hunky-dory. The fact that we haven't consistently, or perhaps ever, found a politician with this sort of backbone for more than two centuries seems never to enter the equation.
