    member in the House orientation was... "when am I going to get my healthcare?". You mean your government funded healthcare you hate?



    And it is this attitude that ultimately will doom the Tea Party. Politics has always been done with compromise.. the Tea Party does not want to compromise and that makes them a problem.

    I understand the idea of less government spending and I support it. Problem is that, this is not what the Tea Party of 2013 is about.. it is about power and forcing the majority of people to do their will on issues that they cant even themselves live up to the ideals of the Tea Party.

    The very fact that Reagan would have been a RINO according to the Tea Party, clearly shows how radical and out of touch the Tea Party is.

    The very fact that the anti-government Tea Party elected officials have gobbled up billions in pork for their districts.. something that the Tea Party is against.. or/and gotten government subsidies.. something the Tea Party also is against... shows a massive disconnect between what the Tea Party says and does.

    And finally the fact that the Tea Party members say that they want to cut things like SS, Medicare and so on.. but when you ask them to personally have their benefits cut or access cut ... then they are against it all of a sudden.
    There you go with that grouping thing again. I never said Reagan would be a RINO. I never asked for government health care. I didn't ask for SS or MC cuts, nor did I deny cutting any of my benefits. That is part of the problem. I don't think every Democrat whole heartedly agrees with every idea other Democrats have. What the Tea Party is about over all is having a government that runs as intended by the founders according to the Constitution. If someone runs as a Tea Party candidate and doesn't act like one, they need to be flushed just like the Democrats and old line Republicans. I would support term limits for all Congresscritters including Tea Party candidate.

    How is the Affordable Care Act, "government health care".

    Medicare is health care paid by the government and administered by private doctors.
    Medicaid is health care paid by the government and administered by private doctors.

    The Affordable Care Act requires everyone to take personal responsibility and own health insurance. There are no government doctors and insurance companies continue to be the payer.

    The VA provides the only true "government health care" with government doctors and where the government pays the bills.

    Just wanted to clear up that one small thing.
