Did you really think they just passed around a three-cornered hat?
Big corporations make contributions to Republican organizations like FreedomWorks, chaired by Dick Armey, who pour money and support into the bitter tea pot. What do the billionaire boys get out of their contributions? Less government and more freedom in big business equates to less regulation and bigger profit margins. The stock market has risen in recent months. Ask yourself why the unemployment rate is still high.

Another clueless Obamite who can see the handwriting on the wall.
Uh, because profit is not a dirty word and because we much prefer capitalism and freedom over socialism and enslavement. Keep the government within its constitutional bounds and set our people free!!
Peace through superior firepower!!
Big business LOVES big bureaucracy. The one thing that terrifies big business more than anything else is totally free open competition. No one to bribe, no competitors to legislate out of business.
Amazing how the Left continues to demonize the health insurance companies, considering that many of those companies are financially backing Martha Coakley to keep that 60th Demonrat vote in the Senate so 0bamacare can be rammed through.
The left is jealous. That’s what this article is really saying about the ongoing Tea Party movement.
Why dont these cowardly socialists just move to Cuba and make us all happy
Except Castro . . .
One of the reasons the Tea Party movement is so successful is that the left is still so clueless as to what it is about, who is participating in it, and why we are doing it.
Amen. Can anybody name a conservative Republican billionaire? I can’t think of any.
I have a question: what entitles YOU to MY money, Cheryl?
This article should end with a musical...”Just give peace a chance.......” HA!
They ARE jealous...ha. The “Masses” are organzing..but not under the direction and authority of the Left.
Marx would be furious at them!
Tea Party? What are they talking about? Not those one hundred or so citizens that they told me were at a rally!/s
No, not jealous - more like scared sh!tless. Combine the Tea Party movement with Sarah Palin and you have the left’s nightmare that will never end.
Hallmarks of Liberalism: Ingratitude + Envy
Uhhh, why don’t we compare the “big business” contributions to Dem party candidates and the DNC vs the GOP & the RNC? Think we’re at 8:1, 10:1?
This is the kind of brain dead bumper-sticker thinking that’s a waste of neurons to even respond to.
The author Cheryl Kook comes off like a transplanted Valley Girl.
I notice how dated her information is with references twice to 2007. Seems she’s right timely.
Her plea at the grand finale of the article struck me as perhaps something out of Ms. Congeniality.
obviously, the author has never even been to a Tea Party, or surely they would have witnessed the signs protesting insurance companies and their sweetheart deals for mandated ‘health care’.
Read the comments.
They call Tea Party members wusses.
Bring it bitches.
Liberals really haven’t got a clue of who their messing with. None.
They complain that we have corporations funding us but that isn’t the truth. What the hell would they do if Soros suddenly dropped dead and stopped funding them?
**I have seen depictions of our president as an African witch doctor, a black-faced minstrel and a monkey. I have heard him called a liar by a member of the House of Representatives.**
and these are SAINTLY Depictions Compared to what this WHINER called GW
