I am a teacher. I am not a legislator. I am not the governor. Regardless, I am being required to bear the burden of their responsibility. When I go to work, I should be able to do so without the burden of issuing a tax bill to my students.

...then they ridicule you, then they fight you, and then you win."
M. Gandhi said that when asked what the English were doing about demands from India's people to end British rule.
