A Movement or a Cult?

"In a recent poll almost ninety percent of Tea Baggers said that they thought taxes had either gone up or stayed the same under Obama. Only two percent thought they went down. But the reality is taxes have gone down. For ninety five percent of working families taxes went down."

Unfortunately, The people who need this message most would never listen to or believe Bill M.

Peace, and enjoy your lower taxes!

We may have lower taxes right now, but that can't last for long at the rate we are spending (under both of our most recent Presidents). I see this kind of thing as a diversion from the real issue, which is that our country is bankrupt.

Mary Ann, I do agree that government spending is out of control and it needs to be reined in. I personally think that we need to cut spending AND raise taxes (or at least eliminate a bunch of the loopholes which allow the extremely wealthy to get out of paying their fair share) in order to get back on sound financial footing. However, I personally know many people who align themselves with the Tea Party movement and keep hearing them say that Obama has raised their taxes. That is the message they are receiving somewhere and it's simply not true.
