Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) & Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) Tax Day Tele Townhall With Tea Party Patriots – April 15, 2015

(Photo Credits: Public Domain, Wikipedia (1 and 2) On April 15, Tea Party Patriots was honored to have two tax-fighting conservatives on our Tax Day Tele Townhall: Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH). Except for President Obama, no one looks forward to Tax Day. Shamefully, the tax code has grown into a 70,000+ page monster, the IRS has been used as a weapon against Americans for their political and religious beliefs, and politicians use it to hide favoritism for special interest groups in the form of tax credits. On our tele townhall, both Senator Lee and Rep. Jordan described in detail why we must simplify our tax ...

Barack Obama: Worse than Jimmy Carter

The people have spoken! A new Quinnipiac University poll [1] released Wednesday shows a plurality of Americans (33 percent) believe Barack Obama is the worst president since World War II. Oh how the mighty have fallen? Former President George W. Bush came in second with 28 percent believe he’s the worst president, while Richard Nixon came in a distant third at 13 percent. The Quinnipiac poll, it should be pointed out, just reaffirms recent downward trends [2] in President Obama’s approval rating. While we certainly agree with the poll’s outcome, we’re not surprised the rest of America is catching on. Right now, the White House is ...

Daily Caller’s Jim Antle diagnoses the problem with listening to Rove Republicans

Last week, former Bush advisor Karl Rove and other establishment Republicans decided to found a new organization to help Republicans win races in 2014 and beyond. Apparently ignoring their poor rate of success in 2012 (though, admittedly, candidates like former Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO) did themselves in), these money-rich and principle-poor Republicans are focusing on preventing what the organization’s spokesperson called “undisciplined candidates and sub-par campaigns.” Tea Party Patriots National Coordinator Jenny Beth Martin has already responded to Rove’s efforts, pointing out that Rove is more concerned with lining his pockets than saving ...

Rep. Jim Jordan welcomes Tea Party Patriots and Members-elect to Washington

Last Friday, Tea Party Patriots was proud to welcome Republican Study Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) to its second Freshman Orientation in Washington, D.C. Jordan spoke for over 15 minutes to new Members and over 100 Tea Party leaders.

Exclusive Interview with Rep. Jim Jordan

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) is the Chair of the Republican Study Committee (RSC). With nearly three-quarters of the House Republican Caucus joining its membership after the 2010 elections, the RSC has gone from being a thorn in the side of Republican leadership to being a major player in moving the party to the right. And while the party may still not be as dedicated to lower spending and tax reform as many grassroots conservatives would prefer, under Rep. Jordan the RSC has proposed significant spending, tax, and entitlement reforms. It also proposed a budget that would balance in five years. Rep. Jordan was kind enough to sit down with Dustin Siggins ...

Holding Them Accountable: Rep. Jim Himes

We need to hold our Representatives and Senators accountable. Listen to Rep. Jim Himes say his voted didn't contribute to Washington's out-of-control overpsending. While Congressmen and Senators are home this week for the Fourth of July vacation, we also need you to work this week to get your Congressman, 2 Senators, and any candidates for those offices on the record and on video answering 2 questions: 1) If elected or re-elected will this person vote to repeal this law COMPLETELY? and 2) If elected or re-elected will this person vote to balance our budget in 5 years without raising taxes and stick to those spending levels for 5 ...

HEALTHCARE: Costs trouble Obamacare enrollees “More than one-third of Obamacare enrollees aren't happy with the extra out-of-pocket costs they must still pay for healthcare. Thirty-seven percent of respondents to a Kaiser Family Foundation poll released Thursday said they're "somewhat" or "very" dissatisfied with their plan's deductible — a set sum consumers must pay for some doctors visits or treatments before their insurer steps in. Those on plans that meet the new requirements under the Affordable Care Act were more likely to report problems with costs — like being unable to pay their medical bills or skipping doctors visits because of cost ...

TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: Tea Party Group Teams With ACLU, NAACP On Patriot Act “Growing concerns about the Patriot Act’s renewal are creating strange bedfellows. The Tea Party Patriots and the ACLU are running TV ads urging Americans to “tell Congress [to] protect our privacy.” On top of that, the executive director of Iowa’s ACLU and Tea Party Patriots’ boss Jenny Beth Martin have coauthored an op-ed in the Des Moines Register on “the need for significant reforms to curtail government surveillance authorities, like some of those included in the Patriot Act.” And even the NAACP — which hasn’t always been kind to the tea party movement ...
