It is easy to sit back and direct others to work, but very tough when the politicians themselves would have to get out and get dirty. It would make a good reality show.

In this same vein, I've often thought that it would be nice to have one of these big wigs live on what I make for a living, first of all just to see if they could manage their money for a year and secondly, at the end of that year, see if they still think I should be paying in as much taxes as I do...
Sure would make another good reality show...
