The Tennessee Republican Party takes on the federal mortgage entitlement mentality.
I’m buying one of these bumper stickers today (though I’m a renter, I like their message).
From the TN GOP party press release:
The Tennessee Republican Party has released a new bumper sticker designed to let people express their frustration with the relentless march by the Obama administration and the out-of-control Democrat Congress to enact endless “bailouts” and “economic stimulus” packages that are pushing America trillions of dollars deeper into debt.
The sticker, which reads HONK if you’re paying my mortgage, is available on the Tennessee Republican Party’s website, www.tngop.org, for a small donation to the party.
“If President Obama gets his way, the 92 percent of American homeowners who pay their mortgages on time will be forced to do with less in the future so that the Obama administration can use their money to reward banks that offered bad loans to customers who had no business accepting them,” said Bill Hobbs, communications director for the Tennessee Republican Party. “Government has no business forcing one American to pay another American’s mortgage. It’s time for the Obama administration to stop the bailout madness, unshackle the economy and the creativity of the American people by reducing personal and business taxes and cutting government red-tape and interference in the economy, and let the free markets work.”
Amen, amen, amen!
Too bad the Beltway Republicans — who either buy into the housing-as-civil-right mentality or are too intimidated by the ACORN mob — won’t do the same.
From commenter twofoot: “Shouldn’t it be, “Honk if I’m paying your mortgage”?
And from commenter tre: “I’m paying their mortgage. But they’re not paying my rent. Something ain’t right here!”
