    Other than a strong desire to tap her, I have no interest in Sarah Palin.

    I'm just sayin.

    As a card carrying member of MoveOn, I understand grass roots movements, including the Tea Party.

    Fox.



    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    They're plan is to do the opposite of what Pelosi, Reid, and the rest of the liberals have been doing the last 2 yrs.

    Well, considering that in general Tea Party members agree with economic theorists of the notion that cutting taxes increases job creation and economic involvement, I'd imagine it'll help be PART of what spurs a better future for the next generation.

    However, the Tea Party is as adamant about cutting spending as it is in regards to cutting taxes. Again, one of the differences between a political PARTY and a political MOVEMENT is that one generally is much more concerned with specific policy and legislation as its made up of POLITICIANS and beuracrats whose life and job is involved with the nitty gritty of such things. A political movement tends to be far more made up of individuals, especially in places of power, than politicials and the such and is generally move focused in an idea than nitty gritty.

    As a comparison, you didn't see many anti-war movement folks giving you in depth battle plans and diagrams in regards to exit strategies and the methods in which to do it. You don't see many environmentalists giving lengthy dialogs on the in depth corporate tax codes and the ramifications on the environment and business in regards to the variety of fines and taxes placed upon businesses in the name of the environment. So on and so forth, its a disengenious feint and strawman to expect detailed exact answers on some kind of nationally focused level and not on an individual level when speaking about a movement that is loosely organized at a federal level and is more focused on the individual than the group as some kind of gibbering mass entity.

    On a personal level I'd say you start by cutting spending across the board. You then start looking at programs that are either one, wasteful, or two, luxuries, and you start cutting there first.

    Or, once again, you could actually READ WHAT PEOPLE ARE POSTING HERE and stop playing dumb. Again, as a general idea, the Tea Party has a stated view i nregards to what to cut and what to do along with cutting taxes:

    5. Restore Fiscal Responsibility & Constitutionally Limited Government in Washington
    Create a Blue Ribbon taskforce that engages in a complete audit of federal agencies and programs, assessing their Constitutionality, and identifying duplication, waste, ineffectiveness, and agencies and programs better left for the states or local authorities, or ripe for wholesale reform or elimination due to our efforts to restore limited government consistent with the US Constitution’s meaning. (63.37%)
    So you want to know what would be cut. Things identified as outside constitutional authority, duplicate in application, wasteful, ineffective, or things that are better served by the state or local authorities. Most political parties don't have extremely more in depth generalized platforms than that and asking for a handful of specifics as if this is some kind of legislative process shows your dishonesty in this and highlights again, you paying attention Liblady, the issue with people ignorantly mischaracterizing the Tea Party as if it is a political party rather than a political movement.

    Further things, ALREADY Posted and Linked to in this thread, concerning the Tea Party and spending:

    3. Demand a Balanced Budget
    Begin the Constitutional amendment process to require a balanced budget with a two-thirds majority needed for any tax hike. (69.69%)
    6. End Runaway Government Spending
    Impose a statutory cap limiting the annual growth in total federal spending to the sum of the inflation rate plus the percentage of population growth. (56.57%)
    So on top of not adding new taxes or cutting taxes they want it mandated that the budget is balanced rather than taking loans and want to limit the amount of growth the government can do to limit the amount of spending going on and forcing the politicians to better choose what is most important to use the money towards.

    Those are just a couple things, already posted and linked, that deal with what the Tea Party wants above and beyond simply "Cutting taxes". Indeed, there are more planks to their pseudo-platform concerning spending then there is about taxes.

    Wonderful. So does the Democratic Party. What's the use in bringing it up unless you think its a significant portion?
