More Tea Party Magic: The Letter of the Week

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 an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we would certainly appreciate it.
