Jon Stewart Rails Against The Tea Party’s Refusal To Compromise On Debt Deal (VIDEO)

Jon Stewart doesn’t understand what the tea party is so angry about. The conservative faction of Congress successfully demanded huge spending cuts without tax revenue in a deal to increase the debt ceiling.

“Go ahead tea party congress-people,” Stewart said last night. “Put on your tri-corner hats, play your fifes and dance the minuet. Tea party like it’s 1799.”But many tea partiers insisted the spending cuts didn’t go far enough. “What the fee-fi-fo fuck?” Stewart said. “Take the win. What are you so angry about? Yes, government still exists. We still have traffic lights, we’re sorry. Not everybody defines freedom as the ability to not pay taxes.”

“Government isn’t perfect,” he added. “But some people wish it was better, not gone.”
