Tea party, get your facts right

We have all been hearing about the tea party movement. Now we have seen all the rallies about how the tea party movement have said stop taxing us, and said how people cannot afford Obama's high taxes. These people would probably like bush who had two big tax cuts.Those tax cuts in 2001 gave 44% of all the tax cut money to the top 20% wealthiest americans, and in the 2003 tax cuts 77% of all that money went to the top 20% wealthiest people. Under Obama people 173 billion dollars in taxes were cut meaning that in total the the tax revenue redused for the goverment, and that means people paid less taxes in 2009 when Obama came in.
The White House noted Thursday that federal taxes were reduced by $173 billion in 2009 and said that the average tax refund is about 10 percent higher than last year.

  1. The problem with the tea party is that it isn't about taxes. They have to use that line along with socialism because what they mean is my money going to poor people and " ethnics" . It's all about racism not taxes or socialism. Old white men that are insecure. Same with our tea party. Jason Kenney seems to have died and gone to heaven with his portfolio.
