More Tea Party Magic: The Letter of the Week

Shares

The best letter to the editor in Montana this week goes to Julian Lemaster from Billings, who knows his federal taxation policies. This choice excerpt only captures a portion of the magic:

Medicare, Medicaid, U.S. Postal Service, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the list goes on. Social Security is not socialism because workers pay into it; therefore, they have a right to it.

The only surprise? That this guy isn’t the Republican candidate for State Auditor.

If you appreciate our efforts to hold Montana Republicans accountable and the independent journalism here at The Montana Post, please consider supporting our work with a small pledge.

I'm sure you know my thoughts on socialism, Po. Regardless, the guy who wrote that letter… isn't too bright. I think we can completely agree on that.
