Some, if not all, politicians fail to remember who elected them and why.
They get a high-paying job with benefits and a retirement that most working people can only dream about. They eat and live better than most, yet are willing to take from the working class and give to influential big business.
Stan Saylor, in particular, evades the issues of how and what he gets paid, including benefits. Then he tries to sidestep the issue by making ludicrous accusations that protestors are being paid by unions and are really protesting that you can be denied unemployment after punching your boss in the face.
What a joke. Another politician who would deny anybody a fair wage for hard work. Why doesn't he give up his public-sector desk job and operate that backhoe, dig a ditch, work in a factory, or, better yet, drive a school bus for $9 an hour?
Mr. Saylor, you need to work for the people, not against them. Be accountable, quit sidestepping the issues and, most of all, quit being a member of the party of "no." Work together to get this country back in shape.
