If by Tea Party, you mean fiscally responsible and concerned about the future strength of the US Constitution, then I hope to believe that there are more than just a handful.

So if we don't agree with you then we are against these things?

Mike Lee is the perfect example of the Party of No.
I just checked Mike Lee's actual voting record thus far in the Senate....

56 - Yea votes,
144 - Nay votes.

And he has not voted Yea once FOR a single judicial nominee.
100% Nay votes.

He is the poster child epitome of NO.

Just like being Mr. "fiscally responsibility" on his Alpine mansion,
His actions speak louder than his words.

Nearly every poll says somewhere between 52% and as high as 59% of Americans still DISapprove of obamacare. Yet day after day we see politicians who attempt to stop/change it getting blasted in the press.

People should spend some time evaluating that disconnect.

Bad is bad and it is corrupt politicians that allow it to continue while in the backroom they are busy exempting themselves from being subject to the terms of it.

Wake up people. You are being used.

I agree - sort of -
So now, let me explain your 'disconnect".

If you asked me if I disapprove of Obamacare, I would say YES.
Because I (like many MANY others) want a single-payer system,
with the public option [i.e., NO Insurance Companies making a profit using healthcare.]

Corrupt politicians let the Insurance companies come in and write the legislation,
taking control of Affordable Healthcare.

BTW - It was the REPUBLICANS that did that when they proposed it in the first place.

Barack Hussein Obama is the one who is causing Americans to suffer by damaging the economy with his failed policies
... you mean such as asking Congress to pass a jobs bill?
... or do you mean that anyone with that name is bad?

Sarah Palin was criticized for predicting death panels in Obamacare. Looks like she was right, but will get no credit for it.
... she was criticized for being a careless mother, too.

All I see is inflation of the cost of living. At the current rate it is rising the value of my dollar only going to buy half as much by the time of the next election. My money matters.
... but the inflation is due to the war expenditures and tax cuts by the puppetmasters who put Bush into office, so they could get richer.

So long as No is the only way to stop the spread of socialism and the moral decay of our country, then No is what needs to be said.
... looks like you bought into the lies, sorry for you

George of the jungle: inflation is running at about 2% annually. At that rate it is going to take about 40 years for your money to be worth half of what it is today.

Mike Lee is the antithesis to the far left demagoguery. He is like holy water for democrat vampires. Mike Lee is the salt for left wing snails. He must be good or the Left would not be so afraid of him.

It is my feeling that Mike Lee should spend a little more time representing people here in Utah rather than "struting around on the national stage"

Perhaps some of the readers could refresh me on what legislation Mike Lee has introduced and passed to benefit the people of Utah or the United States.

I do not seem to remember any of his legislation passed. Am I wrong?

My personal feeling is that he perhaps should practice what he preaches about fiscal responsibility in his own personal life.

It is called "Walking the Walk" instead of "Talking the Talk".
