Americans ready for tax reform, survey says

  U.S. tax-policy reform is on the forefront of Americans minds this year, according to a recent survey – which is not surprising as real-unemployment numbers remain abysmal and Americans continue to tighten their belts. CNBC has the story: That's the finding of a recent survey of 1,040 individuals conducted by WalletHub, a provider of free credit scores and reports. Nearly 57 percent of participants said that "tax fairness" — what people should pay and how much — was more important than "whatever is best for the economy," which garnered close to 23 percent… "Consumers are spending more than they should over the past few ...

Corpus Christi Tea Party is Ready for 2015

(Photo Credit: Josh Harper) More than 50 patriot activists met at the Tuloso Midway Middle School  for the first Corpus Christi (Texas) Tea Party meeting for 2015 on Tuesday, January 27th. And they have started the new year with enthusiasm, thanks to the historic midterm elections! Rick Milby, their Local Coordinator called the meeting to order and Bob Jones offered "A Moment in History" about Henry Ward Beecher [1] the abolitionist.  Jones (in the cowboy hat) is famous among Tea Party activists, as he spoke at the original Tea Party in Corpus Christi, on April 15, 2009.

Irony Alert: The Budget Blame Game has Already Started

Over the last several weeks, many Republicans and most Democrats have said the media will blame the GOP for any government shutdown that takes place over the funding of Obamacare. Never mind that all fiscal conservatives want to keep the government running, with the exception of Obamacare – and therein lies a distinct note of irony for Republicans worried about the blame game: the media is already scapegoating Republicans, more than a month in advance of when the 2013 fiscal year ends. Consider just a few examples in mainstream media publications: Politico: They’d never say it publicly. But catch many Democrats in an honest moment and they ...

It’s been 4 years – and the Tea Party has already impacted Washington

Join us as we celebrate our 4th Anniversary with the 4Years4Liberty Money Bomb! In 2009, a spontaneous political movement swept the country. Yet the media and Washington ignored it. After all, Republicans and Democrats have run the country for over a century – what could a few million protesting citizens do? In 2010, they found out. As Tea Party Patriots’ newest video reminds us, Washington was taken by storm in the mid-term elections. While not all of the newly elected Members of Congress were Tea Party-minded, the elections showed that it is indeed the people who, if they choose, are in charge of Washington. For better or worse, ...

It’s been Long Enough Already! We need a Budget Now!

The Congress of the United States is broken.  Yesterday there was a six-hour farce on the floor of the Senate to supposedly consider five different budget proposals. 57 Senators (including Senators from both parties) voted “no” on all five budgets. Four of the proposed budgets were Republican budgets and included Congressman Paul Ryan’s House-passed budget (which got 1 more vote this year than it got last year for a total of 41), and three offered by Republican Senators, Mike Lee, Pat Toomey, and Rand Paul. The Democrat budget - the President’s Budget proposal - went down to a 0-99 defeat. In fact, the President’s budget did not get a ...

White House says it would veto bill exempting those from Obamacare penalty who lost coverage (through no fault of their own!)

This is a prime example of why Americans are fed up with President Obama and his horrendous signature health-insurance law … because, even if people register for government-run health insurance and their co-op fails leaving them uncovered, President Obama still expects them to pay a penalty for not having Obamacare. What a farce! The Washington Examiner has the scoop: The White House said Tuesday that President Obama would veto a House bill that would exempt people from penalties if they purchased health insurance through Obamacare co-ops, and then lost their plan because the co-op failed. The bill, sponsored by Rep. Adrian Smith, R-Neb., ...

Congress considers legislation to block Obama admin’s “ransom payments” to Iran

A new bill introduced today would stop the Obama administration from handing over billions of dollars to Iran. Sen. Marco Rubio will introduce the new legislation, which would both halt all payments of U.S. taxpayer dollars to Iran and force Iran to return billions that have already been delivered. The Washington Free Beacon has the report: Rubio’s bill—a version of which is also being introduced in the House by Rep. Mike Pompeo (R., Kan.)—would mandate that Iran pay American victims of terrorism some $53 billion in reparations for past attacks planned and coordinated by the Islamic Republic. The legislation comes amid a growing ...
