Congress got an Obamacare waiver. Of course they get to be immune from the damage they cause others. In a more rational world, Congress would be like the canary in a coal mine — anything that would hurt us would hurt them more and first. Like as soon as the economy is failing and debt starts to rise, the first thing to go will be their benefits and salaries. Any law imposed on the public should have the penalties doubled if someone in Congress violates it. Whenever we suffer, they should suffer much more.
See the big problem with politicians is they are constantly asking themselves, “How will this affect the public?” The problem is this leads to poor thinking because, deep down, they don’t really care about the public. Who they care about our themselves. So, if we make sure all laws affect them much more, any time they pass a new policy they’ll be asking, “How will this effect me?!” This will lead to much better results. Or at least more suffering for them. Either way, better than things are now.
