    What happened to the tea party?

    Remember when they were bitching about deficits. Now the gop adds 1.5 trillion to the deficit and none of them care.

    Because the 1.5 T is the down payment on getting the economy moving again. As employment increases we will get that back many times over in payroll and corporate taxes.

    I believe you mean the debt.

    In your dreams, along with all the other imaginary wage increases from all the other tax cuts. The CEO's have even said they're not going to increase wages and hiring because of the tax cut.

    I strongly suspect that the vast majority of anger from the tea party faction was anti-Obama hatred motivated in no small part by his race and the resentment of what that meant to their own fragile sense of identity.

    Once he stopped being president and his white successor made it clear his job was to erase that blackboard - they are more than happy with that even it it means raping and betraying some of the so called principles they lied about having in the first place.

    It was a sham movement built on lies and fueled by racial resentment and that is now more than obvious with their silence on the debt increase and most of the cuts going to the rich and corporations - not the little guy who pretended to be speaking for all along.

    The point is still made. The GOP bashed Obama for his defecits. Lets hope there is no recession, otherwise that specualtion on paying off the debt will be just thar, a pipe dream. And guess what, there will be another recession. Its the nature of our economy. I suppose the GOP could always blame it on a Clinton. Seems to be the GOP vodoo doll even if most of America thinks its over played and tired out.

    They don't care about most of the things they say they care about.
