The special interests of John Boehner (video)

Teachers speak to John Boehner concerning his comment lumping them in with 'special interests' which, to be fair, is only Mr. Boehner doing what they all tend to do: mouth off in an attempt to score political points (with his special interest supporters) and undermine a Democrat in the White House by demonizing the President's attempt to aid struggling state budgets.

Yes, I know centralization of government is one of the big goals these days - it's an American argument so old it has gray whiskers and is quite balding on top.

Still, I personally know many teachers in my region of the country and I do love this video!

In my world, politicians would take part in mandatory service in the most thankless tasks that, coincidentally, get disrespected the most: teachers, social service workers, nurses, personal care attendants, janitors/housekeepers, small-scale organic farmers, and, ta-da, mothers of small children.

* All service rendered would be compensated at minimum wage.
* Participants also would receive the same craptastic health care that the common people enjoy.
* This mandatory service, lasting 2 years, would be required of them after they serve their ONE term in office.

I view it as sort of an incentive program, yanno?
