- Rick Perry says Social Security is a “Ponzi scheme” and “monstrous lie.”
- Michele Bachmann joked that God sent Hurricane Irene to warn against federal spending. Aren’t jokes supposed to be funny?
- Eric Cantor says disaster relief must be offset with other spending cuts.
I believe in Social Security, workers’ rights, and helping the middle class. Republicans pander to the far right daily with ludicrous statements and attacks on President Obama. These statements motivate Tea Party voters like nothing else. It’s not enough to criticize them – we need to fight back!
They’ll have outside help – Karl Rove and the Koch Brothers will make sure of that. If we don’t all stand together now, they will gain an edge – and we saw in 2010 what happens when they do.
They’ve got their Big Oil benefactors. We’ve got half a million grassroots donors. Keep fighting on the ground, on the air and online.
Perry, Bachmann and Cantor don’t speak for me!
