Yes, No, No, No, No, Yes

In our current environment of different rules for different people, I began to wonder exactly how the administration selects who will pay taxes and who won't, or who would get benefits and who wouldn't.  The process appears to bear a striking resemblance to the clip below.

In either case, the selection process appears to be based on size and determines who will get screwed and who won't.


  1. I think we are getting a feel for who gets screwed and who doesn't: if you live in a district represented by someone with an (R) behind their name, you get a 'no.' A (D) merits a 'yes.'

    Note how the slush fund stimulus cash was handed out, the lion's share to those districts with a(D)after their rep's name.

    Oh, I tell ya, these guys have to go.

  2. Fredd, a cynical person would see this as typical Chicago ward politics.

  3. I am cynical. I guess maybe I shouldn't say it's based on size, but on what they have to offer in return. tee hee.
