Emmy and Peabody award-winning reporter Hank Plante wrote an article published in USA Today calling members of the Tea Party “political extortionists” and “political Jihadists” who aren’t far removed from their predecessors who hated Social Security, Medicare, welfare and anything that smacked of “entitlements.”
The author also described Tea Party representatives as a small cadre of Republicans who held their own party, the rest of Congress, the White House and the American economy hostage in their failed attempt to dismantle the Affordable Care Act.
Plante reminded us that the Affordable Care Act was passed by Congress, upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court and ratified by the re-election of President Obama; and that the Tea Party engaged in political blackmail.
