  •  Is Pete Peterson a teabagger? (1+ / 0-)

    I'm not up on him these days, but in the 90's, he criticized the right wing of his party for catering to "fat cats" like himself - , he called for higher taxes on the rich, he was advocating universal health insurance, calling access to health care a right.

    Source: His book, "Facing Up."

    Has he moved to the right since then?

    Granted, he's definitely not one of us, and much of what he proposes on deficit reduction could turn to be a Trojan horse to start cutting programs to the poor, even if that's not his intention. I regard him with a great deal of suspicion, but I don't think of him as a tea bagger.

    Just another underemployed IT professional computer geek.
