  •  They all need to try and live on UI benefits. (2+ / 0-)

    If David Gregory lost his job he'd just sit back on his wealth and not miss a meal. I don't particularly begrudge the wealthy that aspect of their lives.  But they ought to admit that there is a huge portion of the American citizenry that they simply do. not. relate to on any meaningful level.  

    Until Gregory demonstrates an ability to live on $500 (which is the top amount for UI benefits in my region) a week he can say whatever he likes, but I'm under no obligation to take him seriously.  I wonder if he realizes how few people actually listen or care what he thinks.

    The sad thing is that too many Congress critters seem to be similarly detatched from reality.
