The post of mine that Rush Limbaugh read on the air last week:
…the trouble with the Tea Party movement is that they tend to target their anger at only one source: Big Government.
However, angry Americans really need to face the unfaceable: that most of their fellow citizens are just as corrupt, incompetent and compromised…
Today, polls show…
62% of those polled say “the benefits from government programs such as Social Security and Medicare are worth the costs of those programs for taxpayers.”
Most tea partiers are older, which doubtless helps explain those numbers on Medicare and Social Security.(…)
Still, the point remains — even among the most devoutly fiscally conservative populist movement in America, self-interest trumps ideology when it comes to entitlements.
