Tea Party Hypocrisy

Ten different government organizations -- including the U.S. Forest Service, Okanogan County Emergency Management, the Air Force (whose Fairchild base is being used as a mobilization center), The Washington state government, whose governor requested a federal emergency declaration to help facilitate firefighting, The Obama administration, which issued that declaration, and Utah, Nevada, Arizona, Colorado, and California that are contributing resources for use in Washington -- mounted a "large-scale coordinated response" to fight a fire that threatened homes.  That effort saved the home of a Okanogan, Washington man named Brad Craig.

He thanked them wearing a t-shirt that said "Lower Taxes + Less Government = More Freedom."

 Can you say hypocrite!
