I like it when Congress wears masks. Most of them should be ashamed to show their faces, and if you plan to rob the public, it helps to dress for the part.

[I’m reminded of some other quotes:
There is no distinctly native American criminal class except Congress.
The difference between death and taxes is death doesn’t get worse every time
The little boy who goes to the store for his mother and forgets what she sent
him for must grow up to be a Congressman.
The new Congressmen say they’re going to turn the government around. I
hope I don’t get run over again.
The Bill of Rights went too far. They should have stopped with “Congress
shall make no law.”
I wouldn’t be so hard on Congress if they would just stay within the bounds of the U.S. Constitution. That they don’t means they are criminals and should be treated as such.
I view the failure to not have consequences for politicians overstepping their authority the single greatest fault of our constitution. I would like to see something like every time one of the laws they voted for was declared unconstitutional meant another five years was added to their prison sentence and a $1000/day fine for every day the law was in effect. It wouldn’t be a perfect solution but it would be better than what we fail to have now.—Joe]
