We Like Mike! – Utah Senator Mike Lee’s Book Party

FreedomWorks’ Matt Kibbe, Jenny Beth Martin, and Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) In the United States Senate, there is arguably no bigger defender of liberty and the conservative principles than Republican Senator Mike Lee of Utah. A constitutional scholar, Senator Lee has worked tirelessly - often behind the scenes - in battles to stop Obamacare, cut taxes, and roll back the overwhelming size of the Federal Government. This month, Senator Lee is out with a new book Our Lost Constitution: The Willful Subversion of America's Founding Document, and Tea Party Patriots was thrilled to co-host a book party for him with our friends at FreedomWorks on ...

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 ...

Today, Nancy Pelosi is working hard to bring back another wasteful and corrupt government program that uses our tax dollars to line the pockets of some of the world’s largest corporations.

As you've probably heard from media reports by now, last night Rep. Paul Ryan gave a speech to his colleagues in the Republican Conference meeting that he would accept the job of Speaker of the House as long as he could be a unifying force AND as long as the 3 major factions in the House got behind him.
