Message to the Corporate Fueled Tea Party: THE TABLES ARE STARTING TO TURN!
This is really a life or death moment for America. The battle lines have been drawn in Wisconsin where the newly elected Tea Party supported governor has manufactured a budget crisis by giving millions in tax breaks and benefits to corporations. He now wants to fix the problem on the backs of the public employees in the state.
Governor Walker’s attempt to further diminish the middle class is just the latest in the insidious campaign to turn America into a financial haven for the wealthy under the guise of fiscal responsibility championed by the so-called Tea Party Movement. A campaign that has been choreographed by extremely powerful and wealthy special interests who have manipulated with lies and disinformation to turn Americans against each other.
But last Saturday, in Chicago and in cities around the country, America started fighting back!
Of course, Walker and his supporters are trying to defend their efforts to systematically destroy the public workforce in Wisconsin, but the only way to defend the indefensible is with hypocritical and dishonest rhetoric, such as…
- Governor Walker saying ‘We’re Not Gonna Allow’ Protestors To ‘Drown Out’ The Taxpayers.” But hey, it was just fine when Tea Party protesters disrupted town hall meetings, or spit on legislators during the healthcare debate, and effectively drowned out taxpayers trying to engage with their elected officials or have their representatives govern, wasn’t it Mr. Walker?
- Sara Palin calling on Wisconsin union members to “sacrifice and carry our share of the burden.” Hey Sarah, have the top 2% wealthiest Americans made a sacrifice, or did you, your party and your Tea Party supporters successfully insure that the massive tax breaks given them under Bush were extended another two years?
Their hypocrisy is incredible, and if the situation were not so dire, and the impact so important, it would be funny. But it isn’t funny. This is really a life or death moment for America. IT IS TIME FOR AMERICANS TO MAKE A STAND AND DEFEAT THE CORPORATE POWERBROKERS AND THEIR TEA PARTY CREATION!
