Cap-and-tax 8 hypocrisy watch: Reichert's GaGa gag

GOP Rep. Dave Reichert is a real piece of work.

The Republican cap-and-tax 8’er from Washington state apparently went to a GOP conference meeting this week and showed the audience a pop music parody video that substitutes Lady GaGa’s famous “Just Dance” chorus with the words “Just Tax.”

Rep. Reichert was trying to show fellow House members how to be hip and reach younger generations with the GOP anti-tax message.

“He wanted them to encourage the youth in their district, and share the message on a level that young people can relate to,” Reichert’s spokeswoman told CNN.

But what Reichert really showed was complete obliviousness to his own high-taxing ways.

He was only one of eight Republicans to vote for Obama’s massive energy tax.

He’s got a hell of a lot of nerve complaining about high taxes.
