Tea Party Patriots Efforts in the Fight Against Illegal Immigration

Sadly, the subject of violence committed by illegal immigrants has been in the news frequently over the past few weeks. While this issue has recently garnered new headlines, this is actually an issue that Tea Party Patriots has been aware of for some time. Thanks to our supporters we have been able to actively highlight this problem for the last few years. In the Summer of 2013, Tea Party Patriots held a press conference at the U.S. Capitol highlighting some of the victims of the crimes of illegal immigrants. We brought them to DC so that Members of Congress could hear their stories directly. We believed then, as we do now, that this is an integral ...

Statement from Jenny Beth Martin on Sen. Vitter’s efforts to repeal Obamacare exemption

Since the passage of Obamacare, Sen. Vitter has been consistent in calling for the repeal of the illegal, special exemption for the political ruling class. He is to be commended for using his chairmanship to root out corruption and political privilege.  Hardworking, taxpaying Americans are forced to live under President Obama's nationalized healthcare regime; kudos to David Vitter for this first step toward leveling the playing field.

Senator McConnell and Chairman Camp –Allies for Delay Effort or Soundbyte Sellers?

In the last week, two prominent Republicans have called for partial and complete Obamacare delays, respectively. On Monday, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) called for the delay of the insurance exchanges created under Obamacare in a letter to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and a public statement. Last week, Ways & Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) called for a one-year delay of Obamacare.

The Lying McConnell is Trying to Revive a Govt Agency

This is the closest thing to a unicorn we’ve ever seen. A government agency has shut its doors, and we have a small window of time to ensure that it stays that way! We're talking about the Export-Import (Ex-Im) Bank. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has continuously opposed the reauthorization of Ex-Im publicly, but today he decided he will allow the Highway Bill to come to the floor with only two amendments – an amendment to repeal Obamacare and an amendment to reauthorize Ex-Im. We know the Obamacare vote is a show vote because it would require 60 votes to pass. This is the Senate Majority Leader’s way of trying to appease conserva...

Jenny Beth Martin speaks at the Capitol Building.

This week has been a very busy one for Tea Party Patriots. Earlier this week Tea Party Patriots joined Senator Ted Cruz, Senator Mike Lee, Congressman Jim Jordan, Bill Flores, Senate Conservatives Fund, Heritage Action, and Club for Growth outside the Capitol building urging Congressional leadership to resist the temptation of reviving the Export-Import bank.  I appreciate these Members of Congress taking the lead in this fight. The lapse of the bank's charter earlier this year was a victory for our movement. It is critical we remain vigilant on this issue because leadership in Congress is working to reauthorize the bank. Out of $2.2 ...

#WheresMyExemption?

One of the most glaring inequities in the so-called Affordable Care Act is that members of Congress and their staff are benefiting from a special designation that makes them exempt from the full effects of the Obamacare law. Congress actually claimed to be a small business so they can continue to receive subsidies under Obamacare that makes the law less expensive for senators, representatives and their staff. “You know what my pet peeve is? When Congress passes a bill that they don’t even have to live under!” conservative-libertarian vlogger Julie Borowski says in her latest video published in partnership with Tea Party Patriots in an ...
