Direct quotes from Dilbert's post!
Well this one isn't from Dilbert, but I thought it rocks too:
The worst politicians in US history
"This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure [the Congressional Budget Office] did not score the mandate as taxes. If CBO scored the mandate as taxes, the bill dies. OK? …"
"Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever … that was really, really critical to get the thing to pass. Look, I wish … we could make it all transparent, but I'd rather have this law than not. "
"[I]f you had a law which explicitly said that healthy people pay in and sick people get money, it would not have passed."
