Will rich politicians make sacrifices?

Will rich politicians make sacrifices?

To the Editor:

We Americans are being told to sacrifice our way of life in the name of renewable energy and that our economy is in a period of “transition,” not a recession. Will the John Kerrys and Nancy Pelosis of the world do the same by “sacrificing” their private jets, their limousines, and their overall lifestyles as we are being told to do? Just wondering.

  • Do you require others to do the right thing in order for you to do the same? Typical magarat logic.
