Bill: You ain’t kidding, Einstein. The idea for me got started about 80 years ago when FDR had the crackpot idea that you could grant “rights” by stealing people’s labor. Never mind the idea ain’t even constitutional. That didn’t stop the Democrats…
And because I’m so dang unpopular, Democrats have to figure out how to pass me without actually voting! Pretty cool, huh?
Bill: Sort of. They’re trying to pay off as many people as they can with special deals, kickbacks, earmarks, guaranteed jobs if they get kicked out of Congress in November, you name it! And all so they don’t have to vote on the real bill!
Now get lost. You bother me. And don’t come back until you’ve got some money to grease the wheels of the legislature. Dummy.
