The baggers are only interested in obstructing government in order to weaken it and ultimately destroy it. Not a single one of them is a "patriot". They are mindless puppets serving the interests of the Koch brothers and their associates. Don't believe it?..Just follow the money.
Tea Party? Koch funded and controlled. CATO? Heritage Foundation? Americans for Prosperity? : all Koch controlled.The Kochs also have a big stake in ALEC. Then there are the various Koch foundations that steadily shovel cash to promote their agenda. And they have plenty of cash to throw around, thanks to the $100 Billion in annual profits generated by Koch Industries.
Koch Industries (pronounced "coke") has been described by Hoovers as "one of the largest (if not the largest)" privately owned company in the United States.  The company states that it "owns a diverse group of companies involved in refining and chemicals; process and pollution control equipment and technologies; minerals; fertilizers; polymers and fibers; commodity trading and services; forest and consumer products; and ranching." The company was started in 1927 by Fred Koch, an early member of the John Birch Society. The company is led by Charles Koch and David Koch, arguably two of the leading and most influential financiers of anti-regulation and right-wing ideology in the United States.
Koch Industries is a privately-held company. It is reported to have a revenue of over $100 billion in revenue per year.
It is insane to think that men like the Kochs have the best interests of every day working Americans at heart! That's probably why according to Charles Koch, the U.S. needs to get rid of the minimum wage, which he counts as a major obstacle to economic growth.
Listen to Harry Reid Explain How ĎAnarchistí Tea Party Minority is Holding America Hostage!
In a recent interview with KNPR Public Radio in Nevada, Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, compared the modern Tea Party to the anarchists who started WWI, saying,
Listen to Reidís candid remarks here: http://youtu.be/5Awp4Fbl30M
ďWho is the Tea Party? Well, understand, when I was in school, I studied government, among other things, and prior to World War I and after World War I we had the anarchists. Now they were violent, you know, some say thatís what started World War I, the anarchy movement, but they were violent. They did damage to property and they did physical damage to people. The modern anarchists donít do that. Thatís the Tea Party. But they have the same philosophy as the early anarchists. They do not believe in government. Anytime anything bad happens to government, thatís a victory to them. And thatís whatís happened.
We have absolute gridlock created by a group of people who represent few Americans. But it makes it extremely difficult to get things done.Ē
