21. The only difference between a tea bagger and a repuke is the tea baggers say what they are
for while the repuke pretends to be for middle class while on the campaign trail then once in office screws the middle class who were dumb enough to believe what they said. That was how Reagan won and it is how every R won since Reagan, say they are for helping the middle class, then throw them under the bus to help their buddies who run corporations. The sad part is the middle class who vote R vote that way for one reason, to stop someone else they feel is under them from getting a share of the pie.
