Quote of the Day, December 3, 2011

“If you have the 1 percent saying, ‘Tax the 99 percent’ and the 99 percent saying, ‘Tax the 1 percent,’ you have a standstill.”

—Joseph Zarelli, lead Republican budget negotiator in the Washington State Senate, as quoted in the New York Times.

American politics made easy.

I believe it is time for the 99% to explain democracy to Zarelli by voting as the majority. Who elects idiots like Zarelli? I mean, really? 1% = 99%? Learn some math, Senator.
