So NOW you’re MAD?

Tea Party ProblemsWe had eight years of Bush and Cheney who trampled on the Constitution, but now you get mad. You didn’t get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a President although that is nowhere to be found in the U.S. Constitution giving them that power…nor is there anything about corporations being “people.”

You didn’t get mad when Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate energy policy…even when it was proved that the energy crisis in California was created by ENRON.

You didn’t get mad when a covert CIA operative got outed and other acts of definable acts of treason were secretly done against the country.

You didn’t get mad when the Patriot Act got passed and we operated under a Soviet Union style of surveillance of citizens.

You didn’t get mad when we illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to us and hanged it’s elected leader.

You didn’t get mad when we spent over $600 billion (and counting) on said illegal war.

You didn’t get mad when over $10 billion dollars just disappeared in Iraq.

You didn’t get mad when you found out we were torturing people even though we hanged Nazis for doing the same thing.

You didn’t get mad when the government was illegally wiretapping Americans.

You didn’t get mad when we didn’t catch Bin Laden.

You didn’t get mad when you saw the horrible conditions at Walter Reed which our returning wounded soldiers had to endure after fighting for their country.

You didn’t get mad when we let a major US city drown due to shoddy levees built by the government.

You didn’t get mad when we gave a $900 billion tax break to the rich and major corporations, many of whom paid no taxes on the billions in profit they made.

You didn’t get mad when, using reconciliation; a trillion dollars of our tax dollars were redirected to insurance companies for Medicare Advantage which cost over 20 percent more for basically the same services that Medicare provides.

You didn’t get mad when the deficit hit the trillion dollar mark, and our debt hit the thirteen trillion dollar mark.

BUT you finally got mad when the government decided that people in America deserved the right to see a doctor if they are sick.

Yes, illegal wars, lies, corruption, torture, stealing your tax dollars to make the rich richer, illegal surveillance of American citizens, are all okay with you, but helping other Americans…oh hell no.
