16 Apr 2010 Project 21’s Deneen Borelli Calls on President Obama to Attend a Tea Party Rally
While being interviewed on the Fox News Channel’s Fox and Friends show April 16, Project 21‘s Deneen Borelli responded to President Obama’s complaint that Tea Party goers really should “thank” him by calling on the President to attend a Tea Party rally and talk to rally participants in order to “really hear what is going on” in terms of public concerns and discontent.
Addendum: Always whining about something, Media Matters for America is complaining that Deneen is wrong because, to quote the Media Matters website, “the recovery act contained $288 billion in tax relief.” Media Matters is pretending it doesn’t understand the concept of “net,” that is, if the President promotes a tiny tax cut and larger tax increases, he really ought not claim the mantle of “tax cutter.”
The Heritage Foundation’s Brian Riedl notes that President Obama’s latest budget raises taxes by $3 trillion. The President raised tobacco taxes, which disproportionately fall upon lower income individuals. ObamaCare contains massive tax increases. Cap-and-trade, which the President ardently supports, would raise taxes still further, probably by trillions if not quickly repealed (admittedly, through a regulatory apparatus, but the money is lifted from taxpayers just as thoroughly).
