The Tea Party is Wrong (but not about everything)

The Tea Party is right – you ARE Taxed Enough Already.

The Tea Party is right – the government does need to balance its budget.

Waste is in the eye of the beholder

The Tea Party is wrong – the entire federal budget isn’t waste. Ask a dozen Tea Baggers and you’ll get a dozen different answers that all start “Get rid of everything… except (insert the program thet benefits them directly)”.

The Tea Party is wrong – we shouldn’t balance the budget by cutting more jobs in a bad economy.

The Tea Party is wrong – taxing the rich won’t bring our economy down. In fact, it will bring our economy back.

The Tea Party is wrong – the rich are not the most productive members of society.

The Tea Party is wrong – the rich don’t give us jobs like saints doling out dispensations. Jobs are created by economic demand. If there is money to be made, business will do whatever it takes to make that money, including hiring workers. If there is no money to be made, that is, if there is no demand for a good or service, no amount of extra cash on hand is going to incite a business to spend it on hiring a worker to produce a good or service that nobody can afford.  (And you can take that to the bank… because that is where big corporations are sitting on piles and piles of cash, waiting for demand to return, right this second!)

The Tea Party is wrong – they are supporting the very forces that are making their lives difficult and making them angry.
