Agenda of the GOP, tea party activists

To the Editor,

Is there any doubt now about the agenda of tea party activists and the right wing Republicans?

Look at this 49th District Congressman Darrell Issa (R-Vista).

He's managed to embarrass everyone who voted for him and his likes.

Just where are the jobs?

Every bill proposed in Congress to create jobs for Americans has been voted down by the tea party activists or blocked by the Republicans in the senate.

It should be clear to everyone now the agenda is: destroy women's rights and health care; destroy unions in the U.S.; destroy voting rights; eliminate health care; allow the polluters to pollute; make the one-percent richer; relief for corporate regulations; keep education in the U.S. at 45th in the world; keep infant mortality at the third world level; and raise taxes on the poor.

Conclusion: These tea party activists from the Koch Brothers, Americans for Prosperity and Freedomworks are an embarrassment to the American people and the world.
