What Happened to the Tea Party?

I’ll give Business Insider some credit. After Tea Party-backed candidates came up empty across the board in Tuesday’s Republican primaries, the website that has spent years maligning our rule-of-law movement could have taken the low road.

Here’s Why Tax Credits Kill Society

Tax credits reward particular businesses or developers with tax dollars from the general population. They concentrate wealth in a few hands. Tax credits are the way politicians play the market with someone else’s money. Worse, Republicans are addicted to tax credits.  A Missouri House Republican leader told a constituent that his party gives tax dollars to people who “spend it smarter.” Bill Clinton said the same thing in about 1992.
