When the Going Gets Tough, the Tough… Leave the Country

Well, it’s recess time for Congress. So they’re all headed home to discuss with their constituents their views on Obamacare, Cash for Clunkers and the economy, right?

Hey, if I was a member of Congress flirting with supporting Obamacare and saw the reaction Arlen Specter (joined by HHS Sec. Kathleen Sebelius) got when he tried to explain why it was important to move “fast” on the bill, I might head for Fiji too:

These “townhall meetings” are starting to look more like Mussolini’s last days.
