Tea Party crybabies want it all???

Good morning, Netizens...

 

Cartoonist David Horsey set off a political bonfire this morning with this cartoon of John Boehner being derailed by a Tea Party baby. Oh, Lord, there are so many ways to read this. After all, didn't the Tea Party members all get elected by promising on their honor to never raise taxes? While I am not a Tea Party advocate, I do find it unusual, even odd, that an elected official actually keeps their campaign promises, and it appears that is what they have done.

 

Of course, all Tea Party members and Republican wing-nuts might spend a few quiet moments in the corner thinking about what would happen if a national default were to take place.

 

There are many of us out here, who have faithfully paid into our Social Insecurity funds who stand to lose everything. This, of course, does not include Medicaid payments and those on military retirement who would stand to lose everything; that is simply unacceptable.

 

Are the Tea Party members saying they are willing to stop all funding for these?

 

I not only say no, I say Hell no! Of course, your results and opinions may differ.
