Harry Reid says the days of the TEA Party movement are numbered.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid believes the tea party’s days are numbered.Uh. If the Federal Government is too big, too intrusive, takes too much in taxes, and does not follow the Constitution how will a better economy change any of that?
“The tea party will disappear as soon as the economy gets better. And the economy's getting better all the time,” Reid said in a pre-recorded interview with NBC’s Meet the Press, scheduled to air Sunday.
Reid argued that the tea party “was born” because the economy “is probably the worst it’s ever been except for maybe the Great Depression.”
Let me remind you Harry of the TEA Party principles:
Fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government and free markets.
Now Harry, to his credit, understands that a growing economy is going to help quite a lot in the fiscal responsibility area. But until the budget is balanced that issue will not go away. In fact it may not go away until the National Debt starts declining. That still leaves the Constitutional issues intact and does nothing to wither the regulatory state.
I have your number Harry. You will be gone from the Senate before the TEA Party is no longer a political force in America. You have fewer than 2,191 days to enjoy your recent re-election.
