Two Dollar Tyranny
forcing Olympic medalist to pay $ 2 to keep their Olympic gold medal. Most of our Olympic athletes do not have lucrative contracts like Michael Phelps, not that there is anything wrong with Michael Phelps being awarded vasts sums of money, and there are a few that end up with significant out of pocket expenses. It doesn't sit well with me that individuals who earn our nation international honor get dinged like this. I wonder if our Nobel prize medal winners must do the same?
