Laments greed in government

COURTESY TO THE BELLINGHAM HERALDJanuary 4, 2014 

I believe that the reason that the Tea Party is under such attack is simply because it has no big money interest behind it. Our representatives have become people that most, not all, simply want to stay in power and therefore want to be re-elected. The Democrats have their favorite contributors, the unions and such. And the Republicans have theirs, also -- business in general. All are looking for a big bite from all the taxpayer money going into the slush fund. I believe all the Tea Party people are saying is it can not go on for ever. And personally what I am saying is that, my god, for some of you representatives, you are close to being evil.
