"Where are all the people that are politically connected in Washington that had accounts at UBS?" Birkenfeld asked. "I'm telling you this is a political cover-up. Why is it that the whistleblower is the only guy in jail? I mean, this is insanity," he said.
Tea Partiers take notice: This is the enemy. Not immigrants, blacks, or other powerless minorities. It's not Left vs. Right, Liberal vs. Conservative. That's how they keep us from looking at the man behind the curtain. It's class warfare, and they're cleaning up: They've destroyed our unions; shipped out our jobs; set up a lucrative War on Drugs; scammed us with a housing bubble, then helped themselves to our tax dollars when it burst; and now they've passed legislation that will force us to pay them for worthless private health insurance under pain of fine from the IRS. I challenge anyone to claim that immigrants have done this kind of damage. And these ruling elites don't think they need to pay taxes either. What a racket! This is truly Banana Republic stuff.
