Is Jim DeMint really a frontman for the mega-rich, those who really pull the strings of our "leaders" in government, and who really controls the policies of the United States of America?
* The Heritage Foundation received foundation grants from the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation, the Scaife Foundations, the John M. Olin Foundation, Castle Rock Foundation, JM Foundation, Claude R. Lambe Charitable Foundation, the Richard and Helen DeVos Foundation and the Charles G. Koch Charitable Foundation.
The former South Carolina Senator Jim DeMint is now president of Heritage Foundation. In a recent op-ed piece at the Wall Street Journal DeMint writes why the Tea Party had shutdown the government in a failed attempt de-fund Obamacare:
"It's worth explaining why my organization, the Heritage Foundation, and other conservatives chose this moment to fight --- and why we will continue to fight. The reason is simple: to protect the American people from the harmful effects of this law."
But the real reason why DeMint and the other rebels want to get rid of Obamacare (which was the Heritage Foundation's idea in the first place), is because multi-billionaires will be taxed 3.8% on their capital gains to fund the expansion of Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare).
DeMint, via the the top one percent's foundations (and others) who support the Heritage Foundation, use and support the 501c tax-exempt Tea Party to push for an agenda representing ultra-rich people, but yet, they call themselves a grassroots organization that represents regular hard-working, honest and patriotic Americans. (The word "freedom" is a code word for the Tea Party.)
After witnessing recent events, I've come to the conclusion that Mister DeMint must now be representing the majority of American voters...
DeMint gets most of his policy information from multi-millionaire talk radio jocks like Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh. Then Demint orders Texas Senator Ted Cruz to do what he wants, and then Cruz tells Speaker of the Houser John Boehner what he should do, then Boehner decides what goes to the floor for a House vote (by using an unconstitutional policy called the Hastert Rule).
So basically, we have the crazies advising a fanatic, who instructs a radical, who in turn directs a corrupt politician what to illegally vote for in the best interests of Southern Dixiecrats (not the entire nation).
I was once concerned that our democracy had become a plutocracy (note all the previously listed foundation grants). But now I fear that we're living in an insane asylum, and all our government leaders have flown over the cuckoo's nest.
Take this country back...from the inbred wackos.
