Demotivational Poster: Tea Party Republicans

Tea Party Republicans by ~BlameThe1st on deviantART

So let me get this straight, Republicans:

Your main criticism against Obama from the very start was that he was going to raise our taxes.

Your main reason for protesting Obama through the Tea Party was that he was going to raise our taxes.

You convinced the American people to give you a majority in the House of Representatives last year in order to prevent Obama from raising our taxes.

You signed a pledge to corporate lobbyist Grover Norquist promising that you would prevent Obama from raising our taxes.

You browbeat Obama into extending the Bush tax cuts so that he wouldn’t raise our taxes.

You almost allowed the country to default on its debt limit because you didn’t want Obama raising our taxes.

You allowed the Super Committee to fail because you didn’t agree with Obama and other Democrats raising our taxes.

And now you voted against extending the payroll tax (something Obama agreed with!)—THUS RAISING OUR TAXES!

(But then again, what else should we expect from the party that gave us “Read my lips: no new taxes”?)

And mark my word, allowing the payroll tax cut to expire will royally screw up America and its economy, especially for the poor and middle class, as it means more money taken out of their paychecks through taxes.

So next year, when you discover that your paycheck is smaller than it was last year, don’t blame Obama: blame Republicans! Consider it their early Christmas present (and by “Christmas present,” I mean “middle finger”) to the American people.
