US vs. THEM: “Ours was the first revolution in the history of mankind that truly reversed the course of government, and with three little words: ‘We the people.’ … Almost all the world’s constitutions are documents in which governments tell the people what their privileges are. Our Constitution is a document in which ‘We the people’ tell the government what it is allowed to do.” —Ronald Reagan (1911-2004)
REPORTER: The official White House account tweeted yesterday, the cost of a fourth of July cookout is down 16 cents from last year. 16 cents?
JEN PSAKI, WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY: There has been a reduction in some of the costs of key components of the Fourth of July, a Fourth of July barbecue. That was what the tweet was noting.
REPORTER: So does the White House think that 16 cents off a barbecue has more of an impact on people’s lives than gas being $1 more this time at this Fourth of July than last year?
PSAKI: I would say if you don’t like hot dogs, you may not care of the reduction of costs. You don’t have to like hot dogs.
