Where's Richard Burr's Tea Party?


Something really odd strikes me about this $900 Billion in additional borrowing our federal government agreed to yesterday. Where's the Tea Party?

The ubber right Tea Party came out in force to vote Republicans into office - Republicans who will stop all the spending, stop all the debt, stop all the irresponsible nonsense going on in Washington DC. And the first big thing we hear out of Washington DC after the election is that we're going to borrow an additional $900 Billion, on top of the $2.4 Trillion we're already slated to borrow over the next two years? And the Tea Party is silent?

The Tea Party is full of hypocrites? Are they simply typical ultra right wing Republicans? They bitch and moan about the deficit and debt, yet they'll vote for income tax cuts all day long and ignore the debt and deficit implications.

The definition of insanity is repeating the same thing over and over, but expecting a different outcome. What we're seeing from this latest $900 Billion action is insanity. We're trying to solve economic problems by taking the same actions we took over and over in the Republican Bush administration - cut taxes, go deeper in debt. How'd that work out last time? We're in dire need for the Tea Party to recognize this insanity and take action.

In the North Carolina Senatorial campaign, Richard Burr called the Tea Party his cavalry. And the Tea Party came out in force to support Richard Burr. Hardly a month after being elected, our Republican Senator is now going to kick the Tea Party in the teeth and vote to layer on an additional $900 Billion in debt. That should be a Tea Party wake up call.

It's time for the Tea Party to put a stop to all the insanity going on in Washington DC. It's time for the Tea Party to shame the Richard Burrs in Washington DC into putting a halt to this $900 Billion madness. Its time for the Tea Party to flood Richard Burr's office with phone calls and angry letters. It's time for the Tea Party to put up, or shut the hell up.

North Carolina deserves better than Republican Senator Richard Burr.
