Letter: Dislike of taxes does not make one racist
Re: ‘Tea party agenda has antebellum echoes’ (Metro, Oct. 8)
Letter writer Rebeca Taub forgot to follow through with the liberal playbook when she said the Tea Party should be called Confederates. She only hinted at what she meant. All good liberals know that when you’ve run out of arguments you just call the other side racist.
She forgets that Obama already got to tax the rich when she says that “the insufficient revenue causes the debt to rise.” Of course! THAT’s what’s causing all our debt! Not the uncontrolled spending spree. But don’t worry. The multiple hidden taxes in Obamacare will raise plenty of revenue.
Oops! I forgot. All that new revenue will go to trying to pay for a new entitlement that will break the back of the U.S. economy once and for all. Please remember that “TEA” stands for Taxed Enough Already, which doesn’t seem to be very racist in it’s tone, does it?
