Nobody could be more servile to the interests of the wealthy than the Tea Party Republicans who insist they are championing everyday Americans.
Vice President Biden was wrong to call them terrorists. They are servants, toadies of the most reckless and grasping of the rich.
Even the socially responsible rich think the Tea Party stance is nuts. Mayor Bloomberg has noted that there was simply "no way" to bring the deficit into line without raising revenue.
In their blind resistance to simple reality, the nuttier Republicans caused such a mess in Washington that investors the world over felt added cause to doubt the soundness of the American economy. The eventual result could hurt even the rich.
Meanwhile, the Tea Partiers continue pushing for cuts in programs benefiting the less fortunate while refusing to end tax breaks for the wealthy. If the likes of the Tea Party had held sway during Marie Antoinette's time, there would have been no French Revolution or guillotine.

I’m poorer than most of my liberal relatives (who are mostly government employed)
Now who is the toady?
85% of the Bush tax cuts went to the middle class.
The Rich all ready pay 55% of their income to Government. HOW much more do you greedy, self righteous parasitical Progressive Fascistic think you are entitled to? 60%? 70%? 80%?
That's been 0bama's economic plan all along. (While he dines on wagyu steak)
Take Back AMERICA! Restore The Constitution!
FUBO GTFO 2012 !
He’s using Mayor Mike Bloomberg as an example of someone who is “socially responsible?” WTH?
Oh come on...

Okay...now scoot over to Twitter and search "#BO50"
Now, there's yer "toadies".
no French Revolution or GUILLOTINE? I don’t think this guy knows who used it first.
These hate mongers never consider the fact that the federal governmment already sucks up far too much of our income and sends too much of it on their friends and supporters.
Just because one person has more money than another doesn’t justify granting the government authority to confiscate it or extort it under threat of penalty or punishment.
The federal government is already an out of control monster destroying everything it touches.
Stop feeding it!
I might favor ending tax breaks for the wealthy when the Congress makes every person pay the same rate of tax on every dollar. Fifty-percent are getting a free ride. So a little break for those who actually carry the load is quite in order.
Dear Liberal Moron,
It just doesn’t bother us that someone else has $1 more than we have. Or $100,000,000,000 more for that matter.
But, then again, “Thou shall not covet, thou shall not steal” actually mean something to us.
Isn’t Mort Zuckerman in charge of the News?
If he is, how can the fishwrapper publish rot like that?
He goes on talk shows yacking about the “anti-business climate caused by the Obama administration.”
Socialist’s refuse to stop stealing money from those who earn it.
These libs act like 90% of the people in this country are “members” of the tea party. They can’t grasp that it’s not a party. It’s a movement!
And the truth is if their HADN’T been a tea party there would not have been a French revolution.
Right from the liberal/progressive handbook.

Secondly - I wish these a-holes would cite SPECIFIC examples of these "tax breaks" , I want to see if I qualify.
Taxing the rich is working pretty well in NY state isn’t it? They were glad to see Rush leave (and take his income with him to no tax Florida). Now they are just flush with money and looking to tax the rich even more.
NY has lost the most people in each of the past two censuses. They just want to share their wisdom with the rest of the US (and watch jobs not just leave the NY but also the US).
20% of the country earning $120,000.00 or more pay 70% 0f the taxes while 47% pay no taxes. I can see how we can broaden the base and increase the revenue on a “share the pain” basis.
Goodness knows, we would not have wanted to miss that guillotine!
CW2 Ping, for obvious reasons.
