Jenny Beth Martin talks IRS, Obama’s internet giveaway with Daily Signal’s Genevieve Wood

Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin recently sat down with Daily Signal Senior Contributor Genevieve Wood to discuss Congress’ pending vote on whether to impeach President Obama’s corrupt IRS Commissioner John Koskinen as well as to discuss President Obama’s plan in the coming weeks to hand over regulatory control of the internet. “Part of the reason [Commissioner Koskinen] needs to be impeached is because he misled Congress and he lied to Congress,” says Jenny Beth. The commissioner took the reins at the scandal-ridden agency in the wake of news the agency was targeting Americans for their political beliefs but, instead ...

We stand with Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Woods

On Tuesday, March 25, the United States Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in two landmark cases that have everything to do with the kind of country we will leave our children and grandchildren. In both Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp v. Seblieus, the Supreme Court will look at whether businesses are entitled to the fundamental right of religious liberty.   Four years ago, President Obama signed into law the Affordable Care Act. It’s doubtful any other piece of legislation has done as much harm to our Constitution as much as Obamacare has.  Under one controversial provision, businesses are required to ...

Rep. Woodall Prescribes FairTax For Ailing Economy

By Terri Chapman If national consumption-based taxation is "fairer", many conservatives are still fearful of how rates would fare against the combination of unfettered government growth and a balanced budget amendment. On November 16, the Joint Economic Committee of Congress invited testimony on how tax reform could boost economic growth in America, Rep. Rob Woodall, R-GA-7, gave a floor speech promoting the FairTax Act (HR 25, S 13), which would replace all federal income- and payroll-based taxes with a national sales tax, often considered progressive in effect. Woodall argued that moving to a consumption-based tax system instead of an ...

Woodall, House Freshmen Urge Senate: “Get To Work”

Early this month, the House Republican freshman class formed a coalition and dubbed themselves "Operation Turnaround." Rep. Rob Woodall (R-GA) announced this move in a recent press release and on his website. The group officially kicked off on October 4 by holding a press conference and by sending a formal letter to the Senate urging them to take swift action on 12 House sponsored proposals. Woodall and 36 others signed and delivered a letter entitled "A Pro Jobs Message from House GOP Freshmen." It contains brief but unsubtle allegations that "Senate leadership" has neglected to maintain the overall fiscal well-being of the nation. It also blames ...

Woodall’s 7th District Weighs In On Balanced Budget Amendment

This fall, the recently passed Budget Control Act brings a balanced budget amendment to a vote in Congress for the first time in fifteen years. Congressman Rob Woodall held a Telephone Town Hall meeting on September 14th to gauge the amount of support a balanced budget amendment has within Georgia's 7th district using a telephone-based polling method.

Providing some background on the most recent history of this issue, Woodall rhetorically asked his ...

Reps. Jordan, Pompeo: ‘The administration misled the public about the events in Benghazi’

House Benghazi Committee members Reps. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Mike Pompeo (R-Kansas) today released an addendum to the House Select Committee on Benghazi’s final report, as the two congressman believe the report released isn’t as hard-hitting as it ought to be. “Officials at the State Department, including Secretary Clinton, learned almost in real time that the attack in Benghazi was a terrorist attack. With the presidential election just 56 days away, rather than tell the American people the truth and increase the risk of losing an election, the administration told one story privately and a different story publicly. They publicly blamed ...
