Getting Something for Nothing: Trump, Fraud, and the Tea Party
Bordelon, David
Thought & Action, p79-86 Win 2017
David Bordelon identifies himself as one of the majority of Americans who voted to keep Trump out of office. In this article he discusses his confusion by the Tea Party's fixation on welfare fraud, and inability to recognize it in President Trump's behavior. The author says that he can only hope that his confusion will be shared, and progress to anger once the Tea Party realizes the man they elected has more in common with their archetypal welfare cheat than a working class hero.
