You should change your name to "lies001", it would be more fitting. The Tea Party was bought and paid for by no one. We understand that the rich already pay a higher percentile of their income than the rest of America. We also understand that taxing them at the levels the Dems are demanding, will only pay for this out of control spending government for 11 days. I personally would like to see a flat tax on everyone in America, regardless of the income level. If everyone has some skin in the game you can be sure that things will change. How about starting at 10% and no loopholes allowed. (By the way I live at the poverty level and have for a while now, and I wouldn't mind this deal at all.) So it would be painful, but extremely fair.

Your comment along with a few others I have heard about the Tea Party have given me confidence that there are really truly stupid people out there.
I suppose the 1% protesters were admirable, Fighting and having sex on cars, deficating on police cars, destroying private property. Yes those are the ones Ii am for. They know how to have fun at others expense.
By the way did you notice that those people had no jobs, no visible means of support? Who was paying them to protest? Please look for the honest truth

Who do you think Buffet bought and the Teacher's Union bought - Obama!

When you lose an election, you get frustrated. When you're sitting in a subpar 2 percent economy, and are faced with tax hikes rather than marginal rate reductions, you get even more frustrated. And when you're staring at $47 trillion in spending over the next 10 years, and $8.6 trillion in deficits, your frustration levels climb even higher.

These are among the frustrations that led a number of House Republicans to pull back from Speaker John Boehner's so-called Plan B. Nobody looked good on the Republican side when Thursday night's vote fell through. But you have to understand their frustrations....
