I'm seriously curious. TEA stands for Taxed Enough Already. Exactly which tax (or tax rate) was added or raised in the few months preceding that caused the TEA party to be formed. I know the stimulus package was passed a couple of months before, but that was not a tax, so what was it? Which tax was enough to make this happen then, but not some other time?
It was spending. The deficit is now 17 trillion dollars. When the spending goes up it has to be paid by the tax payer.. who else?

OK. So, the Taxed Enough Already party wasn't about taxes. Thanks for the answer.

Taxes are going to have to pay it off. This same group are the same people that were initially able to get the bail out defeated under Bush. They have been around longer than 5 years.

Rich people convincing poor people to give them all the corporate welfare benefits...and they fall all over themselves to do it! The biggest manipulator is Fake News, a foreign owned (Saudi, as in 9/11 terrorists) racist, sexist, hateful, right-wing propaganda tabloid who are about as credible as the National Enquirer, who prey on the weakest American's racism and fears. These are the angry, racist, bigots who ONLY got delirious about politics in January 2009. I wonder why? Now, this tabloid of twisted truths and outright lies has manipulated these weak people into hating America, hating Americans and our American President. Fake News feeds on their fear, bigotry and hatred and created these one America loving, bumper sticker reading sheep the worst kind of Americans; hateful, deceived and ignorant ones. Their cult has been trained to not believe any other news sources, detest health care at their own health's detriment, side with billionaires into believing what they see with their own eyes isn't real; global climate change, to the planets detriment and vote against their own financial interests, to their own financial detriment, all while deceiving themselves into believing Jesus would hate and fear just as much as they do, to their once strong religious detriment. They hurt themselves more than they hate the country they once loved, all because they choose to watch a phony "news" channel, which sued for the RIGHT to lie to them! They live for the party of batchyt mental lightweights like Gohmert, Bachmann, McConnell, Poopy Pants Nugent, Zimmurderman, $arah Pain and Hannity... and they call liberals- MorAns?!
^^^^ Nothing but hate. Claiming to "reveal" other's hidden motivations is, in itself, obvious fraud.

"1st World Status" is not created by government or taxation.

Try figuring out what it is.
