    Another sickening example of “The rules do not apply to us”. Politicians are way too full of themselves.

    How can we make that happen when THEY make the laws?
    I wish they did have to live by the same rules as us, it’s only logical and only fair. When thay can make laws that do not effect them they can pass anything without it effecting them… that’s not right.
    HOW DO WE CHANGE THIS?
