That’s the latest cost of their incoherent national tantrum — $100 billion in increased financing costs for which America gets nothing in return. That works out to $322 for every man, woman and child in the United States.
So the Tea Party just cost you $322. They just cost my family $1,288.
You don’t get anything in return for that $322, nor does my family get anything in return for that $1,288. It is simply an added cost due to our sharing this country with aggressively stupid, resentful, angry fools who would rather let the whole thing burn than bother to learn even the slightest bit about others or about the world they live in.
[...] I would say they were thieves, stealing this money from you, but they’re not lucid enough to be thieves.
Thieves at least enrich themselves by taking from others. These folks take from others and just set the money on fire.
As they say, ignorance is bliss, which has never been more apparent than now. You can see this each time the teabaggers think they’ve won something — like our credit downgrade.
