Tea Party activists, who are becoming a force in U.S. politics, want the federal government out of their lives except when it comes to creating jobs.

More than 90 percent of Tea Party backers interviewed in a new Bloomberg National Poll say the U.S. is verging more toward socialism than capitalism, the federal government is trying to control too many aspects of private life and more decisions should be made at the state level.

At the same time, 70 percent of those who sympathize with the Tea Party, which organized protests this week against President Barack Obama’s health-care overhaul, want a federal government that fosters job creation.

They also look to the government to rein in Wall Street, with almost half saying the government should do something about executive bonuses. Supporters are also conflicted over whether private-enterprise elements should be introduced into government programs like Social Security and Medicare.

The demos are unsurprising.

Tea Party supporters are likely to be older, white and male. Forty percent are age 55 and over, compared with 32 percent of all poll respondents; just 22 percent are under the age of 35, 79 percent are white, and 61 percent are men. Many are also Christian fundamentalists, with 44 percent identifying themselves as “born-again,” compared with 33 percent of all respondents.

But do not tax me after you create a job for me!

I was discriminated against by American Idol!
Can you believe that? Just look at my photgenic mug.

Uh...fostering Job Creation doesn't mean that that Tea Partiers want Government Job Creation.

Fostering job creation means, essentially, getting rid of the Big Government policies which are stifling job creation. To foster job creation requires lowering and simplifying taxes, getting rid of burdensome regulations, cutting spending, reducing entitlements, reducing the deficit and the debt.

IOW: Get out of our way.

Fostering indicates takiing an action in creating. Not getting out of the way.


cutting spending will result in reducing jobs not increasing them.
Consider that around 30% of us work for the govt either directly or indirectly.
All income tax preparers work indirectly for the govt for instance.

the industries that make materials and machinery for road repair or construction work for the government.

And on and on.

You're wrong. It means to promote or encourage a climate which is favorable to job creation.

You're stretching, Boe. I'm not saying tea partiers wouldn't agree with you, but that's quite the stretch.
