Tea Party politicos want to undermine administration

The Tea Party spontaneously appeared after grassroot Americans voted for change by electing President Obama. This wealthy Tea Party group has obstructed all changes attempted by using derogatory, vitriolic propaganda and protesting taxes and reform of any kind: un-American conduct.

The Tea Party protest poses the question, “where were these Republicans when President Reagan and the Bush-Cheney regime spent billions on military expenditures that were never funded and the costs that were added to America’s huge debt?” This money was spent on expendable equipment that is readily destroyed in battle with no long-term asset value.

Then President Bush irresponsibly approved a tax cut for the wealthiest Americans while incurring the above-mentioned debt. Taxes should have been increased to pay down the debt.

Tax increases are needed just to keep up with inflation over the years, as our country grows. Money must be invested to rebuild and enhance America’s infrastructure while putting unemployed people back to work – future taxpayers.

Please, Tea Party politicos, be honest about your cause, which is to undermine this administration and obstruct the changes expected by the American voters.
