Middle Class America has a new hero. His name is John Mullins, a 57 year old Auburn, Alabama businessman. America needs a few million more in the delusional congressional districts that have chosen to allow Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and a few other Right Wing hacks to distort their inherent intelligence and create an alternate state of reality.

Republican U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers of Alabama’s 3rd district conducted according to his “Congress on Your Corner” town hall meeting in April. Mr. Mullins, a constituent got completely fed up while listening to as he called it “crazy talk” from Auburn resident and constituent Carl Gagliano. The GOP congressman seemed completely shocked and remained speechless.

The video captures Mr. Mullins castigating the Gagliano and giving the GOP congressman a schooling in economics that is long overdue not only to this congressman but to all those supporting the proving fraud that is the austerity being imposed by Right Wing Republican and Right Wing Conservatives throughout the world. Mr. Mullins makes very important statements that are all backed up by facts.

  • Sequester negatively affecting small business people
  • This congress has done much hurt the economy
  • Cutting funding in a recession hurts customers which hurts business
  • Deficit spending in times of war and times of recession/depression is economically sound
  • Government spending should not be cut during recessions since it is the only entity that has the money to spend.
  • Republicans attempted austerity during the Great Depression which exacerbated the depression. It put millions more out of work (you would think they would have learned from history).

It is refreshing to see a resident, a constituent, a business person, and a patriot, not afraid to confront a room filled with the vociferously uninformed. This is what it takes to recover a country from a destructive, deceptive, and false ideology.

For too long throughout this country Tea Party Right Wing Libertarian Republicans have been at town halls unchecked giving their fact-less positions more sway in the body politic than warranted. This has given America the dysfunctional congress it has. As more John Mullins, make their voices heard, normalcy and prosperity will return.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
