Bill Kristol: A Lot of Tea Party Members Don’t Care If We Raise Taxes on Millionaires (Video)

Bill Kristol became a spokesman for the Tea Party this morning on FOX News Sunday. During the FOX News Sunday panel Kristol argued for higher taxes again and said,

“I don’t think Republicans have the leverage or it’s worth using whatever leverage they have in maintaining rates at 35% instead 37 or 38%. I just don’t think it’s economically as far as policy especially if you can take it up to millionaires… A lot of Tea Party members don’t care that much if a couple millionaires pay that more in taxes, honestly.”

And, he wonders why Obama quotes him in his press conferences?

The Tea Party was created to slow the growth of government and reduce government spending.
Obviously, Bill Kristol doesn’t understand the “TEA” in the Tea Party stands for “Taxed Enough Already.”

  • ★FALCON★

    Bill Kristol, George Will, Ann Coulter, et. al. are all the problem – they have no foundations. No ability to see what made the country great and are happy to see it torn down.

    Hey, they made their millions – who cares about the next guy.

    Wow, everything would be terrific for the Republicans if those darn pesky social conservatives and now those publicly schooled Tea Party members went away. Please keep asking Bill, and they will.

  • Bronson

    This dinosaur doesn’t represent me or my views

    Someone get him off the stage. He’s an embarrassment.

  • Fuquay Steve

    Those neo-cons sure make the rest of us uncomfortable, don’t they? Maybe they need to take a hike and not us.

    I love it when the folks within the beltway throw out that phrase “balanced approach” right now as though that is so logical and sensible.

    What they are saying is that we should use today’s obscene spending rate (not based on any budget that anyone in Congress has voted on) and use that as the starting point to offset in the other direction. No. I don’t accept that as a baseline in getting to a “balanced” solution.

    We need a balanced solution based on what the spending and spending rates were before Congress started getting hyper-crazy when Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid took over under Bush who pretty much rubber stamped everything he was sent. We have had majorly unbridled Democrat spending now for six years, not just four or two years. That starting point should be what has to be used to get to a real and meaningful “balanced” solution.

    This Tea Partier also says to the irrelevant Krystal to STFU and take Rove, Priebus, Morris, Megan and every other so-called republican “strategist” with you. We want to start over without the likes of you.

  • Alvin

    Krystol insulted the Tea Party numerous time. He will have hell to pay this time.


    We all know the Tea Party only wants to send all blacks back to Africa or chains….Duh so why would they care if we raise taxes?

    RINO spokesperson Bill Kristol says:

    ‘”Stamping out the Tea Party” is the first plank of the RINO platform.’

    what a putz.

  • journeyman

    Just the fact that the man thinks he can speak for the TEA party says volumes about our remaining relevance. The fact that he seems to believe his own analysis of what the TEA party stands for tell us that he isn’t one of us.

    Total globalist SCUM!
