    The Misinformed Tea Party Movement - Forbes.com

    And the author?

    Bruce Bartlett - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    And the plot thickens. Thoughts?

    Total lie....All that did was adjust the withholding rates, not the tax rates. Anyone can get the same "tax cut" by increasing the number of dependents on your W-4.

    Claiming others are "misinformed" while using an outright lie as your support rings awfully hollow.

    But wouldn't they, oh I don't know, have the IRS knocking on their door if they can't prove they have X number of dependents?

    Don't try to confuse the Tea Baggers

    If they say taxes are higher....they are higher. 20 zillion protesters can't be wrong

    LOL.........isnt it funny how invariably, it is always those with zero life responsibilities who either author threads like this or jump on the bandwagon on these threads.

    Bozo's like Rightwinger or Dogbart.............have but to answer for themselves each day, maybe make a car payment and take out the trash and make sure there is enough toilet paper on hand in the place of residence. Of course the level of idealism as an approach to life is going to be stratospheric and the tea party people cast in the light of being a handful of folks with guns.!!:eusa_whistle:
