Everyone give up the goods so me and my friends can have more. (Typically spoken by elected officials or upper management)
Elected Official to Constituents: "We all have to pay a little more in property taxes. It's a small shared sacrifice so we can keep teachers, firefighters, and police officers on the payroll".

Elected Official to Staff: "Pay raises for everyone, and if you need me, I'll be investigating our Sister City in the Bahamas".

An excuse used by those who have more to take from those who have less.
Multi-national corporations, bankers, and politicians got us into this mess, but are asking Teachers, Nurses, Fire fighters, and Cops to make less money because we must make a shared sacrifice.
