No. A number of elected representatives with significant support outside of their districts standing on principal. Now if you deem that to be
threatening, why? If the tea party is obstructing democracy, why is it that the overwhelming percentage of Americans don't want to give Obama a
clean raise of the debt ceiling? They are against it because they know the government is broken and there needs to be checks in place, thats
They don't want to simply give him a raise on the debt ceiling because they know he will blow the money.
Why is the establishment so fearful of being candid about the budget? Do you really think that folks know that when the politicians say they are
proposing a 3% cut what they are really doing is proposing a 5% increase rather than the proposed 8% increase? Of course not. None of these folks
are interested in cutting the size of the government. They are only interested in slowing its growth.
None of these groups are interested in honest base line budgeting - which is the budget that people understand. None of these folks are interested
in stopping this flagrant abuse of power masked in double speak and platitudes and arrogance.
Except the Tea Party, that is.
