    I don't see things as a Democrat, Republic, or Tea Party. Instead I see:

    * corruption in a sixteen trillion dollar debt.--that's a half million dollars per second for an entire year.
    * twelve thousand dollars per child in public schools per year, and people wanting more.
    * high amount of welfare & unemployment--shows miss-use of education money.
    * no new taxes--then new taxes, because of excessive spending by corrupt leadership who can't keep their campaign promises.
    * over a third of our deficit coming in the passed four years, and a government spending of two hundred million dollars an hour. That would wipe out the ultra wealthy in about a week, and we're still broke without anyone supplying jobs.

    Many of our ultra wealthy are politicians playing on peoples gullibility.

    Looking at your list I doubt that a wealthy person "created" a single thing that you listed. They most likely provided the money for those projects, but it was the hard working men and women of America who "created" each and every item that you listed. We certainly need the wealthy people and their money to finance our country, but at the same time it takes working Americans to make it happen. Maybe it is time to start working together, taking care of everyone's needs not just the entitled groups at the top and bottom of our economy. There is a whole group in the middle that is being pushed downward that without them this country will not succeed.

    In terms of my gullibility how about enlightening me. Are you saying that the tea party crew didn't sign Grover's pledge? Are you saying that Grover's pledge and policies aren't designed to advantage the wealthy? Are you saying that the tea party crowd hasn't refused to compromise? Are you saying that the tea party didn't take a beating in this last election?

    You may want to reconsider who is the gullible one.

    Here are some example of what the ultra wealthy has done:

    * create malls
    * create gasoline for our use
    * create electric companies
    * create the NFL
    * with their companies, and employees, provided revenue for the function of government.
    * provide us with toilets, cars, airplanes, air conditioners, grocery stores
    * create hospitals, medicines, wheel chairs,
    * made laundry soaps, bath soaps, showers, housing, business buildings
    * create washing machines, dryers, clothing, lawn mowers, department stores
    * etc

    Ever think our politicians don't like these ultra rich people, because they want to run everything?

    After all, these people didn't build it. Some one else did it.

    Don't be so gullible.

    Having 11 fewer members of the tea party has to help house increase the ability to compromise. I would hope that the party of no compromise would abandon Grover Nordquist and start doing what is right for America not what is right for he ultra wealthy.
