Tea Partiers: I agree with your desire to get our country back to fiscal responsibility. I understand that you feel that even our recent small amount of health care reform will add to the problem. But I don’t know why you are so extremely mad about it, and that it is all you can talk (or yell) about? You didn't get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a President? You didn't get mad when, using a lie about WMD’s, Cheney illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to us, for access to oil. Or when we spent over $800 billion doing it, and killed hundreds of thousands of Iraqi’s.
You didn't get mad when Bush borrowed more money from foreign sources than the previous 42 Presidents combined, or when over 10 billion dollars in cash just disappeared in Iraq? You didn't get mad when a covert CIA operative got outed, or when we stopped trying to catch Bin Laden? And you didn't get mad when the Patriot Act got passed, the government was illegally wiretapping us, or even when you found out we were torturing people? You didn't get mad when you saw the horrible conditions at Walter Reed. You didn't get mad when Bush rang up 10 trillion dollars in combined budget and current account deficits, or when we let a major US city basically drown.
You didn't get mad when we gave our very richest few citizens, who had more money than they could ever spend, over a trillion dollars in tax breaks, and we didn’t hear you complain during the worst 8 years of job creations in several decades? You didn't get mad when lack of oversight and reduced regulations from the Bush Administration caused US Citizens to lose 12 trillion dollars in investments, retirement, and home values, or when over 200,000 US Citizens lost their lives because they had no health insurance. No,… you finally got mad as hell, when a black man was elected President and decided that people in America deserved the right to see a doctor if they are sick. - So, illegal wars, lies, corruption, torture, job losses by the millions, stealing your tax dollars to make the rich richer, and the worst economic disaster since 1929 are all okay with you, but helping fellow Americans who are sick...Oh, Hell No!! ??
