Would “Undercover Pol” Help Lawmakers Tune In to Reality?
I propose that perhaps, before any budget slashing begins, Governor Romney and Rep. Paul Ryan should take part in a new version of “Undercover Boss,” as I recently suggested on a morning radio show with Olympia’s Dick Pust.
Maybe we’ll call it “Undercover Pol.” Let’s send our participating politician into a family home where our undercover star has no job… and the mortgage is due. Let’s send them grocery shopping on food stamps. They’ll quickly find out, as I delineated in my own experience with the downhill slide of unemployment, that $76 a month for a family of three doesn’t go very far.
