Speaking at a recent event held by the Sam Adams Alliance, Wall Street Journal editorial board member and economist Stephen Moore told tea party protesters that “the message that you all delivered was heard like a sonic boom in Washington. We’ve never seen anything like it.”
He said that the tea party protesters are angry about the outrageous bailouts and the unbelievable amount of debt the country is taking on.
He told the audience that an article in the Wall Street Journal estimated that if we go forward with the Obama plan, it will cost the average American family $100,000 over its lifetime. So when a CNN reporter asked why the tea party protesters aren’t appreciative of a $400 rebate, what’s that compared to $100,000?
