So now Tea Party Patriots are teabag extremists–according to Mr. Obama.
Mr. Obama, during his private pep talk to Democrats, recognized Mr. Owens’s election and then posed a question to the other lawmakers. According to Representative Earl Blumenauer of Oregon, who supports the health care bill, the president asked, “Does anybody think that the teabag, anti-government people are going to support them if they bring down health care? All it will do is confuse and dispirit” Democratic voters “and it will encourage the extremists.”
This was reported by The New York Times, Nov 9. This article was about the behind the scenes action over the weekend to get the House health care legislation passed.
The Tea Party Patriots are asking that their government follow the law of the land–The Constitution. Well of course, those candidates and elected officials that pledge to support the Constitution are the ones the Tea Party Patriots will support. Apparently, that is just wacko and extremist behavior.
In this same article, freshman Rep. Martin Heinrich (D-NM) states:
“This is an opportunity to do something as big as Social Security,” he added. “And me, personally, I don’t want to be on the wrong side of history.”
As big as Social Security. Can you believe that! How many people, Congressman, Senators, Presidents have called Social Security broken and needs to be fixed. Too many people do not think Social Security will be around in the near future and some younger folks reject being forced to pay for it now. Empty promises are just around the corner.
So let’s just push another entitlement program out there, so in a few short years from now, we can all push to fix another entitlement program. This is just appalling!
