“Liberals don’t care what you do as long as it’s mandatory”

"Liberals don’t care what you do as long as it’s mandatory,” wrote Richard K. “Dick” Armey in his book, The Freedom Revolution (1995). Armey, a Republican U.S. Representative from Texas (1985-2003) and House Majority Leader (1995-2003), has often been given credit for the phrase. Credit has also been given to M. Stanton Evens, director of the National Journalism Center.

“Liberals don’t care what you do as long as it’s compulsory” is another variation of the phrase.
