TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: Administration prepares for court showdown over Obamacare subsidies (Quote by Kevin Broughton) Argues law, negative outcomes if offsets reversed “Conservatives like Kevin Broughton, a spokesman for the Tea Party Patriots, said the administration and its Democratic allies have no one to blame but themselves after muscling their overhaul through Congress in 2010. “There has to be a presumption,” he said, “that the words in a statute mean what they say.” http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/mar/2/obama-administration-prepares-for-court-showdown-o/     HEALTHCARE: Dems call for open ...

Congress Ducks Constituents

From Business Week comes a funny, mocking take on the complete avoidance of traditional town halls by Members of Congress: Gone are the packed, freewheeling town halls of the past, where voters stood up at microphones and pelted elected officials with questions on just about anything. Members of Congress largely put an end to unscripted, up-close-and-personal events after the traumatic summer of 2009, when dozens of lawmakers were shouted down by mad-as-hell Tea Partiers and citizens angry that the proposed Affordable Care Act was going too far or not far enough. The new town halls, as described in the article: Activists have reported on this ...

America’s Finances, Family Style

In the next two months, debates over Obamacare funding, the federal government’s funding, and the debt ceiling will dominate Washington. The Heritage Foundation has a wonderful new toy – “Federal Spending by the Numbers, 2013” – that’s helpful in understanding why it’s critical to hold strong on delaying and defunding Obamacare and freezing the debt ceiling. Alison Fraser has a summary of the full document on the Heritage site, but this brings the federal government’s profligacy home to your friends and family: We can’t wait any longer. Delay and defund Obamacare, keep the debt ceiling where it is, and get federal spending ...

Obama’s new “grand bargain” avoids real tax reform and increases spending

From the Associated Press, reporting on the President’s speech yesterday: Seeking to ease Washington gridlock, President Barack Obama on Tuesday challenged Republicans to accept a new fiscal deal to cut corporate tax rates in exchange for more government spending on jobs programs. The offer was immediately panned by GOP lawmakers, who accused the president of repacking proposals he already supports and making no concessions to the opposing party. The Associated Press reports Senator John McCain (R-AZ) shot down the idea, as did Speaker Boehner and numerous other Republicans. What’s so bad about the President’s idea? First, his speech ...

What’s in the immigration bill? Nobody knows

Earlier today, Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) pointed out the obvious in a Judiciary Committee hearing – nobody knows what’s in the immigration bill the Gang of Eight dropped last week: The entire video is worth watching. Senator Sessions makes the bill’s supporters look absolutely foolish. He also rips apart the idea that transparency is taking place during the debate over the bill. And he articulately joins Tea Party Patriots and activists across the nation in opposing the bill because of the process the Gang is using to pass it through the Senate. Will the bill pass through the Committee and the Senate? It’s certainly possible, ...

What happened when the Tea Party came to Washington State

Join us as we celebrate the 4th Anniversary of the Tea Party with the 4Years4Liberty Money Bomb! The Tea Party was founded to fight for the principles that made America great – those of fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government, and free markets. The fight started in the Beltway Bubble in 2009, but has expanded well beyond simply protesting corruption in our nation’s capital. Since the 2012 elections, the media has declared the Tea Party dead. Apparently, they weren’t paying attention in Washington State on Election Day, where Tea Party Patriots helped raise awareness about the importance of our founding principles. That ...

Senator Rand Paul addresses Tea Party Patriots and new Members of Congress

Last Friday, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) dropped by the Tea Party Patriots’ Freshman Orientation. The Senator, whose values align closely with the Tea Party, has led opposition to the high-spending ways of both parties in the Senate. The Senator spoke for about 11 minutes, but despite its brevity his speech was full of necessary knowledge and principles for Tea Partiers and Members-elect alike. Specifically, Senator Paul spoke about zero-based budgeting (as opposed to today’s baseline budgeting, which always assumes increases in the federal budget) and the many inefficiencies in the federal budget. Senator Paul was elected on certain principles ...
