bubbles‘The truth may set you free, but not if you’re a Republican and the subject is taxes.’   The Repugnants have been orchestrating the silliness around yesterday’s protests.  Their partner in silliness, the PR department of the Repugnant Part, Fox News, has given them all of the free air time they desired.  The result was another dead on arrival minority flop. Read about the 10 Republican Tax Day lies in detail on Crooks and Liars.

1.  President Obama will raise taxes on small businesses.
2. The estate tax devastates small businesses and family farms.
3. 40% of Americans pay no taxes.
4. Tax cuts always increase revenue.
5. The GOP is the party of fiscal discipline.
6. Ronald Reagan was the greatest tax cutter of all time.
7. FDR caused the Great Depression, or at least made it worse.
8. Obama’s cap-and-trade plan will cost each American family $3,100 a year.
9. Obama’s tax proposals will undermine charitable giving.
10. The rich pay too much in taxes already.

If you missed some of the highlights of tea bag Wednesday, check out this short clip:

–  Hey Paul Krugman (A song, A plea).  This is a fun song devoted to Paul Krugman. I agree.

–  If you have not seen this video you are in the minority. Here is Susan Boyle, Simon and some very surprised listeners.

–  The New York Times finally chimes in on the Minnesota Senate race/decision in an Editorial called ‘It’s Over, Norm. O.K.?’

–  Have you checked out the Obamameter lately? How is our new President doing with his campaign promises?

1. Gloria - April 16, 2009

My anti-tax protest sighting: After leaving the main post office on 8th Ave having just dropped off my tax forms and a big fat check, I heard the sound of a marching band coming down the avenue- a pretty good matching band at that. The band was accompanying a small group of tax protesters (coralled onto the sidewalk of course by an equally small group of disinterested police). But tthe protesters weren’t tea-baggers. It was an anti-war, anti-tax protest combined into one. Protest the war by non-payment of taxes, i.e. starve the beast. Sorry to admit I was in too much of a hurry to catch a train to stop and point out to them tht their argument doesn’t work because we don’t need taxes to fund wars. Our government just borrows the money from China.
