Obama: "Everybody's got to have some skin in the game."
On This Week.
People losing their jobs, their health care, and their homes? They've got skin in the game.
People who have problems getting fuel and food? They've got skin in the game.
Big Money? They've got skin in the game. Bien sur.
Except that's our skin, too. And it's our skin in their game.
Thanks to the bailouts, which gave Hank Paulson's golfing buddies two trillion dollars of our money, with no accountability and no transparency.
