ďI think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whatís being proposed here, heíd agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.Ē - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
Just like conservatives are laughing at people like yourself, as you pay for their 10th car, their private jets, and their weekend get-aways to the private islands in the pacific.

See, it's a bit inconsistent to constantly promote policies that hammer the middle class and then whine because the middle class isn't paying more in taxes.
Here is my post again.
Sorry, I have to post this again. What you are also missing is an understanding of Tea Party supporters. I met with Tea Party individuals at a demonstration. Two older folks there were carrying signs that read ďNO GOV HEALTH CAREĒ, but to me they looked old enough to be on Medicare. They were on Medicare. They explained to me that they didnít want the government taking it over and messing with it.
Also, a Tea Party family was at the demonstration, father, mother and one 10 year old son; two more at home. My wife and I chatted with them. The father is a vet that started serving just after the Viet War ended. He was disposing of Agent Orange; which in our opinion may have been the source of his health problems. He had a heart attack about 6 months earlier. Went to the hospital where his wife works as a low level employee. What she said she did only pays low wages. They canít afford the extra for family health insurance, she was the only one insured since that canít be refused for more pay. His bill was about $90,000. Her wages were garnished by the hospital; itís only a small garnishment so it will take a very long time to pay it off. Again, they were there with a Donít Tread On Me flag and more.
Are these the Tea Party members you are thinking of? Or are there two kinds of Tea Partiers? What kinds are there?
