What do they stand for?

It’s hard to believe the Tea Party or GOP really are interested in helping Americans.

For the last two years, Paul Ryan, the poster child for Tea Party, has held congressional hearings on poverty. He has called many panels and expert witnesses on poverty. But during the two years, only one witness who lived in poverty and on food stamps actually testified, which lasted 20 minutes, and she had to submit a 64-page statement for the record. It’s hard to believe anyone wakes up in America and says I want to be on poverty today.

There is, in fact, a bipartisan bill on immigration in the House but Speaker Boehner will not bring it to a vote. Of the 363 bills passed by the House, 142 were sent to Senate and President Obama signed. As for bipartisan, the GOP-led House uses the 15 Blue Dog Democrats, which historically votes with the GOP. To call their bills bipartisan is truly misleading.

In June of 2014, Gallop released a poll on Fox News. 94% of viewers are Republicans, 66% are hardcore Fox News viewers. Nothing at Fox News is “Fair and Balanced.”

Fox News mirrors the Republican Party because it is the Republican Party.
