Our county “emissary” Mark Meckler is spreading his “good word” around the nation’s capital this week, and it’s wearing thin on some.
“I was outraged today when Tea Party Patriots cofounders Mark Meckler and Jenny Beth Martin stated they would be watching the newly elected Congress to make sure they’re doing the ‘right’ thing,’” said nationally syndicated radio host Leslie Marshall in U.S. News & World Report. “They said this during a taping of Follow the Money, one of the Fox Business Channel programs I appear on. Just what exactly is the ‘right’ thing? Oh you mean what they want? Or perhaps their demands?!”
She continues: “It is a very slippery slope when an organization, which comprises only a minority of House members, Senate members, and even voters start deciding what’s ‘right.’
“Is it ‘right’ to repeal healthcare when that doesn’t cut spending, create jobs, or secure our borders?! And whose benefits do we take away first, the children who are ill or anyone who has a pre-existing condition!?! You decide. Ah those family values!
Mark Meckler, Jenny Beth Martin, and all Tea Party folks either need to form their own party or learn how Washington’s game is played.”
