Fairness is a treasured American trait. Mothers who use the "one child divides and the other selects first" technique instill respect and fair play.

So was it fair when this administration confiscated the $1.6 billion student loan program from private businesses and changed the rules which now overwhelmingly favor students selecting government vs. private sector jobs?

Was it fair when this administration issued exemptions for connected companies, campaign-contributing unions and 11,000 D.C. staffers from Obamacare?

Is it fair when illegal immigrants defy our immigration laws but aren't prosecuted because enforcement agents are ordered to stand down?

Is it fair when states requiring IDs to ensure honest elections are hauled into lengthy/costly litigation by the U.S. Department of Justice?

America is arguing and disrespecting -- and rightly so -- because Washington is playing favorites and not playing fair.

A word to the wise: Mother really does know best.
