Random Thoughts

Mr. Aso, Prime Minister of Japan made a political gaffe recently. Can you imagine a Western leader making any of the following comments;

"...asked why his tax payments should go to fund medical care for others who were more lax.."

"'My medical expenses are a lot lower because I walk and so on..."

"Why should I have to pay for those who just eat and drink and make no effort?"

My Japanese is very poor, If I understood the Japanese comments - many agreed with Mr. Aso. Those that didn't, questioned his sensitivity to people with serious life threatening illness.
