You know what? That is so true. Yeah, they might have lived like us before they were leaders, but they need to adapt to what is happening at this very second so they know how to deal with the current issues. Why can't they fill up their own car with gas, and experience the prices and the wait? Why can't they wait in line at the grocery store to buy a gallon of milk? Why can't they file their own taxes, to experience the VERY EXACT THING that we all deal with on a daily basis? Heck, why don't they fly commercial like the rest of us?
Of course they are our "leaders", our "authorities", but they should not be exempt from participating in everything that we participate in. Their entitlement distances them from the issues, and lessens their perspective on how to solve problems. They can't expect to be on the same level as us, if they run from the average life of the average U.S. citizen.
