Liberal financier George Soros said in an interview aired Sunday that Tea Party activists are being “used and deceived.”
“I think the people in the Tea Party are very decent people, hard-working,” he said. “They have been hit by a force that comes from somewhere which they can’t fully understand. And they are being misled.
“And they are misled by people who are using it for their selfish purposes, namely to remove regulations and reduce taxation,” he continued. “So reduce taxation and regulation. And they are being used and deceived.”
