We shouldn’t be surprised that Tea Party-types would buy the BS being sold to them by rich corporations and plutocratic fascists that we need austerity measures in this country because of the debt and deficit. This is entirely false. The rich just want more of our money, and they want us to pay for their mistakes.
Tea Party policies increase income inequality and encourage the hoarding of money and assets by the wealthiest Americans and corporations, while simultaneously helping them avoid paying taxes. And these bastards are able to convince, not only idiotic teabaggers, but also some uninformed liberals and progressives that devastating cuts to education, healthcare, and the social safety net are necessary to avoid economic collapse — that their policies and practices caused in the first place!
The rich and mega corporations are members of an organized crime syndicate. They’re offering to fix a problem of their own causing — for a price.
