The president of the United States of America—or, what’s left of it—actually said this, on the heels of the passage of this damnable legislation called “health care reform”, a piece of legislation about which the American people had made themselves abundantly clear (in the negative):
“We proved that this government, a government of the people and by the people, still works for the people.”
Yes, he actually said that. Presumably, with a straight face.
George Orwell would be proud.
