I know I am about to poke a hornets nest.... but did someone say "Obama fire protection?"

Actually, what happened in this case is "Republican fire protection" -- you only pay if you want and only the payers benefit. No payment, too bad for you.

"Obama fire protection" would be if everyone were required to pay for the service and everyone would benefit from knowing it was always there for them. The folks who didn't have a fire would then complain about having to pay each year and declare the whole system socialist.
