“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - 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.
a) Teabaggers came out of the teabag closet about a week or so after Obama was sworn in and long before the debt increased much on his watch; and
b) They never once complained about the debt skyrocketing as it tripled while Reagan was president and nary a peep from them as Bush nearly doubled it, jacking it up over 4½ trillion dollars.
Clearly, increasing the debt is not the issue. What else is different about Obama that might have set them off on their teabagging ways?
