U.S. Rep. Jan Schakowsky: Tea Parties were "despicable" and "shameful"
Posted on Apr 16, 2009
U.S. Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) blasted millions of Americans yesterday, labeling the Libertarian Party-inspired "Tax Day Boston Tea Party" movement "despicable" and a "shameful political stunt."
According to Schakowsky, the millions of angry Americans coming out to oppose higher taxes and spending were all part of a conspiracy and acting on secret orders from businesses, lobbyists and Fox News. Schakowsky is an advocate of higher taxes, bigger government and the nationalization of health care.
