What the fuck, tea partiers?! What the fee-fi-fo-fuck… you control less than half of one chamber of Congress, and yet have somehow convinced everybody they need to slash trillions in spending because of the “defecit crisis”… Many Republicans supported extending the largest contributing piece to our defecit - the Bush tax cuts! Take the win! What are you still angry about? Yes, government still exists. We still have traffic lights. We’re sorry. Not everybody defines freedom as the ability to not pay taxes. Government isn’t perfect, but some people wish it was better, not gone.
- Jon Stewart, about the Republicans claiming to have gotten “98% of what they wanted” with the debt deal, but still refusing to vote in favor of it.
