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.
