The presidential administration of Ronald Reagan revised the tax code and supported increasing taxes on corporations and wealthy Americans. The Tea Party, who purports Reagan to be one of their predecessors, actually supports the opposite: that is, cutting taxes on the wealthy and corporations. In some sense, then, Tea Partiers might be said to be even further to the right of President Reagan.
How do you suppose Tea Party members might reconcile this difference? And what do you think about taxes on corporations and the wealthy?
