Like AL 05 gop Congress Critter Tea Party elect Mo Brooks,Senator-elect Tea Publican Rand Paul is already flip flopping on whether he supports a ban on earmarks.
Grassroots activists are not happy with Alabama Republican congressional candidate Mo Brooks, who endorsed — and then reneged his support for — a national Tea Party-backed agenda after taking heat from his Democratic opponent over the document’s opposition to earmarks.
To repeat: Republicans aren't going to repeal ObamaCare. For one thing the republican majority of the Supreme Court won't let them. For another thing, the repeal of HCR would ad $455 Billion to the deficit.
Tea Party darling Senator-elect Marco Rubio now says he has nothing to do with the Tea Party.
Marco Rubio a Teabagger? Whatever would have given you that idea? If by “Tea Party” you mean “Wants To Run For President Some Day Party,” then yes, he is a member, but only if that’s what you mean. [Miami Herald]
What jobs are republicans going to create?
If, in the future, Republicans ever again ask “Where are the jobs?” it will be because they’ve forgotten where they buried the ones they killed. For now, though, it’s clear they remember all too well. Like a serial killer returning to a favorite dump site to reminisce or further ravage a corpse, Republicans are returning to the scene of the crime for a bit of fun with the still-fresh remains of 240,000 jobs the GOP killed off last month.
I wonder IF the TeaBaggers will realize they've been p'unked?
It's pretty clear that the Tea Party members are being set up for a big disappointment. There is little chance that the politicians they are supporting are going to do what the members think they're going to do once in office. The members might supply the votes, but the big corporations behind so many of the things that the Tea Party members hate are the ones supplying the money and organization. These politicians, once in office, will understand that the big money can go after them just as well is it went for them this time, if they don't do what they're told by their big corporate funders. But on the other hand, there will be lucrative lobbying jobs waiting for them if they play along. They are going to disappoint the Tea Party members, no question. What will Tea Party members do then?
What indeed? Got popcorn?
