Subtitled: Those GOP cheating hearts!
The Philadelphia Tea Party Patriots has sent out an action alert (and I am assuming other Tea Party groups have as well) urging their members and supporters to oppose the so-called “Tax deal” claiming it violates many of the tenets we all assumed would guide the Republican Party going forward.
“The Deal” or “The Tax Deal” as it is becoming known around the country between President Obama and Congressional Leadership is problematic. This is a deal that needs to be opposed.

A couple of months ago, the Republicans signed “The Pledge” which were several legislative and principled commitments they made to Americans. The Deal violates several commitments from The Pledge.
