Granted, we are operating on the assumption that none of us work for the Obama administration, in which case we would get a free ride.
Apparently, that blanket of invincibility extends to powerful Democrat Congressmen as well.
WASHINGTON -- Rep. Charles Rangel failed to report as much as $1.3 million in outside income -- including up to $1 million for a Harlem building sale -- on financial-disclosure forms he filed between 2002 and 2006, according to newly amended records.
The documents also show the embattled chairman of the Ways and Means Committee -- who is being probed by the House Ethics Committee -- failed to reveal a staggering $3 million in various business transactions over the same period.
Two stories out today here and here detail some of the financial disclosures.
I've said it before and I'll say it again. The Democrats who are running our country into the ground are setting up a Soviet style of government, where there are two distinct classes. There will be the bulk of us in the proletariat and then there will be the nomenklatura - people like Charlie Rangle, Team Obama, etc to whom the rules do not apply. It's already happening now - and all you have to do to see it is look at how many of Obama's Team have various legal issues that somehow or other managed to get overlooked.
