If there were ever the slightest doubt in your mind that the entire Tea Party movement was bullshit, today you have your answer.
Repubs never gave a DAMN about the debt.
They never gave a DAMN about simplifying the tax code.
They never gave a DAMN about the economy.
They never gave a DAMN about the middle class or small business.
They never gave a DAMN about anyone other than the shadowy billionaires who own them.
Well, one does. Bob Corker. But he’s the only one.
Why isn’t anyone in the Tea Party complaining? Because their entire agenda was bullshit, a made-up excuse to take power in order to steal money from hard-working people and give it to the lazy rich.
Let no American EVER listen to ANY Republican in Congress who claims to care about “Taxing and Spending” or a “Balanced Budget” ever again. When anyone who supported this heavy tax increase and massive-debt bill claims to be a fiscal conservative, the proper response is to laugh out loud, say, “I’m not an idiot,” and leave the room. (Don’t forget they ran up trillions in debt like drunken sailors when they had power under Bush Junior as well.)
As they raise taxes on 80% of Americans in order to give billionaires who run hedge funds or own corporate jets a few billion more, devastating your family to give the Trump family $4 BILLION — so much even they can’t spend it all on gold toilet seats, just remember:
Republicans are the reason you can’t afford health care.
Republicans are the reason you or your kids can’t go to college.
Republicans are the reason why our infrastructure is crumbling.
Republicans are the reason you, your dad, or your grandma can’t survive on social security.
Republicans are the reason your disabled or mentally-ill family member suffers without treatment.
And, above all, Republicans are the reason your taxes are so high.
Want to know where your money is?
It’s in Trump’s pocket.
After all, that’s the reason this treasonous wretch became President after all.
Obviously he knows nothing about policy.
He just wants his hands in our pockets.
And if you’re a woman, he wants his hands even deeper.
