      If you are a white collar IT techie or a low-level manager, you'll get sick days and vacation days.

      If you're a schmuck working the assembly line, you won't.

      Since most DKosers are white collar and are in the upper half of the income pyramid, they live different lives than we schmucks on the assembly line do. And sadly, many liberals are all full of plans to "help the working people" without any more than a theoretical understanding of how working poor people really live.

      That's why we get a "health care reform" that addresses the issues and concerns of white-collar well-off liberals, but doesn't do jackshit for working poor people and does next to nothing to help us.
