"...Back in 1994, congressional Republicans unveiled what they called the "Contract with America." The Contract was chock-full of policy proposals intended to shrink the size of government, kneecap agencies' ability to protect the public, and decrease the burden on taxpayers, especially the rich.
Fast-forward to 2010, and we have John Boehner and Friends' "Pledge
to America." The Pledge, cobbled together from comments from various
forums and sprinkled with a variety of items from a number of
conservative wish lists, contains some similar policy goals, though it
appears to be far more driven by an angry, anti-government sentiment..."
THE TEA PARTY REPUBLICAN IS NOTHING MORE THAN A LYING, THIEVING (don't we all hate thieves?) FUND-RAISER FOR WEALTHY SUPPORTERS. MILLION AND BILLION-AIRES GIVE THEM A TINY PERCENTAGE FOR BULLSHIT LIKE THIS IN RETURN. IF THEY GET CONTROL OF THE GOVERNMENT AGAIN, IT IS GOODBYE TO THE NEW HEALTH CARE BILL (WHO DOESN'T LIKE HEALTH CARE? CRAZY FUCKERS IS WHO!), VETERANS ADMINISTRATION, SOCIAL SECURITY, MEDICARE, ETC ETC. IF THEY GET CONTROL OF THE GOVERNMENT AGAIN, THIS LAST FINANCIAL MELTDOWN FOLLOWING THE BUSH/CHENEY GIVEAWAYS WILL SEEM LIKE A GOOD TIME WAS HAD BY ALL THOSE WHO LOST THEIR HOMES AND JOBS.

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
