Tea Party has it all backwards

Success - Article sent! close

This country is upside down. The more money you make, the less percentage you pay in taxes. No other country has that distinction.

I absolutely cannot understand why the wealthy people who made their fortune in this country don't want to pay their fair share of taxes to support it, or our troops, education, the national parks, and our people who need help. Then they're ultra right-wing propaganda faction, The Tea Party, want to throw this country back 100 years, with no civil rights, no regulations, no representation for workers.

They want very little taxes paid, but enough to give big companies subsidies to hire the workers to make their companies profitable. Worse, they are now trying to change the definition on the "rape of women" to suit their agenda.

These people are outrageous and God help us all if they get elected to Congress.
