A Tea Partier Responds on Health Care


Editor’s Note: Responding to a recent string of bigoted attacks made on supporters of Health Care Reform by attendees of Tea Party rallies in Washington D.C., VT extended an invitation to a reader to express the views of the Tea Party which he felt are not being fairly and accurately aired.

Below is the response, printed in full.

By Allan Olds

The tea party is good for veterans for several good reasons, one of which we fought for freedom and the capitalist system, not socialism. We were taught to fight to excel and be successful, not sit on your lazy butt and be given the same thing as a guy who bust his butt to get ahead.

Also one of the fringe benefits of serving my country was my health care, why should some low life draft dodger get the same for nothing?
