Letter to the editor: extending Bush tax cuts unwise

The Tea Party’s objective is to come across as a non elite grass roots movement. They supposedly are against government spending and deficits. They and conservatives are against Democrats for that reason. The unanswered question is where were they when the deficits were created and financial meltdown was occurring, under conservative administration.

It is informative to look at some Tea Party backers standing on Forbes richest 400. The Kochs are No. 5, Rupert Murdoch 38 and Robert Rowling 69. The most important is the free propaganda dispensed on Murdoch’s Fox News and Wall Street Journal. This segment of our country will benefit by lack of governmental controls, not you and I.
