This is NOT The Onion. This crazy, high-ranking, Democrat moron actually claimed that her staffers, most of whom earn over $100,000/year, are going to starve because food in the Capital Building's cafeteria is too expensive. "Just to clarify: An 8-ounce bowl of Ham and Bean soup at the Cannon Office Building’s carry-out café costs $2. A gourmet wrap or sliced bread sandwich sells for about $5. And in the Longworth Building’s sit-down cafeteria, a serving of stuffed chicken, asparagus and mashed potatoes sells for about $7," http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/mar/22/debbie-wasserman-schultz-sequester-nearly-starving/ If that's the case, I guess those of us making under $60,000 must be eating out of dumpsters right? Nobody could possibly afford a meal that costs $2-$7. That's ridiculous. Don't worry though. One republican, Steve Stockman of Texas, has already put out a request for people to donate emergency shipments of “lobster, foie gras, and caviar” so her staff doesn't starve.

You people just don't understand these people are members of the ruling class and deserve special privileges. You can't expect them to go out in public and rub elbows with the working class of this country. These are the people who know what is best for everyone. Maybe we should all give up more so that they could have the meals for free, after all they are the ruling class.

I love history. I read it, watch documentaries on it. I am a nerd, I know. But one thing I can do because I have read so much, watched so much about history, is I can see paralles between now and 'then'. It really IS A TRUISM that those who do not study history are doomed to repeat it. When the rulers think themselves above the suffering of the ruled over..tyranny is on the doorstep. Read up on the French Revolution. When the government thinks it knows best and the people are told they cannot possibly know what is good for themselves, we've pretty much lost liberty. We have a 'ruling elite' whether we like it or not.
