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.

Tea Party Patriots Weekly Legislative Update for 03/29/15

Listen to the legislative update podcast here: CALENDAR:   The House and Senate are both out of session for the next two weeks.   LAST WEEK’S HOUSE FLOOR ACTION:   As happens every now and then, I need to begin this week’s update with a correction to something I said last week. Last week, when I was discussing House floor action the week before, I said the House had passed the Rules for both H.R. 1029, the EPA Science Advisory Board Act, and H.R. 1030, the Secret Science Reform Act. But I most specifically did NOT say the two bills had passed on the floor. That’s because I couldn’t find any record online of ...

TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: The GOP quandary: How far right without falling over the edge? “…Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who is at or near the top of most early polls among Republicans, likes to boast how he stuck to conservative principles to win statewide office three times in a centrist state. “To win the center, you don’t have to go to the center, you have to lead,” he said last week during a Tea Party Patriots telephone town hall. Tea party loyalists are still somewhat wary of Walker, though, because of past positions on immigration and government support for ethanol, a big issue in Iowa, site of the nation’s first caucus. In 2006, he ...

HEALTHCARE: How many will have to pay back Obamacare subsidies? “More Americans will owe the government money for their Obamacare subsidy than won't, says a new analysis. A big upcoming Tax Day question is how many Americans with government-subsidized health insurance will find that they collected more in subsidies than they're qualified for and have to pay some of it back — and how many will find themselves in the opposite position, with the government owing them money. The Kaiser Family Foundation estimates that half of all subsidy-eligible households will be in the first boat, owing the government an average payment of $794. That situat...
