The tea party was formed in reaction to the stimulus bill and massive overspending by the government. For this, they were called racists and other slanderous labels by the Democratic spin machine.
Tea party people are hardworking, retired neighbors and friends who are concerned about the direction this country is taking and the loss of our freedoms.
The Democrats decided to ram through a health care bill through bribes, back-room deals, Senate rule changes and lies, lies and more lies. The tea party and Republicans were the only ones warning the citizens about what would happen, and now the predictions are coming true. In letters to the newspaper, the Democrats are still trying to spin the facts. President Obama said, "if you like your coverage you can keep it." Lie. "If you like your doctors, you can keep them." Lie.
The repercussions of this law have not yet shown the full impact. Hardworking people with employer coverage will be affected in 2015. (Remember, Obama, in a back room, decided to extend the employer mandate until after the 2014 election.)
These employer plans will also not be in compliance. More than 129 million hardworking citizens will be forced off their health care plan and be forced to purchase a plan with higher deductibles and higher monthly premiums. The Democrats seem to think this is fine because it's not built on freedom of choice.
