Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots President and co-founder Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today, reacting to Judge Neil Gorsuch getting voted out of the Senate Judiciary Committee. “The party-line vote sending Judge Gorsuch’s nomination to the Senate floor shows the majority of the Democratic caucus is willfully oblivious to how well qualified this nominee is to serve on our nation’s highest court. Likewise, they’re willfully oblivious to the fact that Judge Gorsuch is exactly the type of judge voters wanted for the high court when they elected President Trump. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has repeatedly said ...

Today's Executive Order, which rolls back so-called ‘green’ energy regulations that kill jobs and harm our economy by raising energy prices, is an essential part of President Trump's promise. The Executive Order also lifts restrictions on American coal and on-shore oil and gas production, helping our nation become more energy independent -- which ...

Tea Party Patriots: House GOP members fail to repeal Obamacare

Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots President and co-founder Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today, reacting to the failed attempt by House GOP members to repeal and replace Obamacare. “The AHCA failed to garner the necessary votes from the House GOP for the simple reason that it failed to repeal the core elements of ObamaCare – the insurance company mandates (‘Guaranteed Issue,’ ‘Community Rating,’ and ‘Essential Health Benefits’) that are driving up the costs of health insurance even as they drive down the quality of care – and, as such, failed to live up to the promise to repeal ObamaCare ‘root and branch....

Tea Party Patriots: GOP “repeal” bill falls far short of repealing Obamacare as promised

Tea Party Patriots and our supporters remain overwhelmingly opposed to the Obamacare repeal attempt the House Republican leadership is currently advancing. Even with the GOP Leadership's amendments, the American Health Care Act falls far short of fully repealing Obamacare. Our goal is to amend this bill so that we can support it. But gaining our support would require meaningful changes, including removing the tax credits (which, incidentally, look a lot like the Obamacare subsidies) and repealing the insurance company mandates. We are also in favor of rejecting the Senate Parliamentarian's advice, if necessary, to move forward with a bill that ...

Tea Party Patriots: Trump Administration Budget a Good Start

Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots President and co-founder Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today, reacting to the Trump Administration’s first budget blueprint. “The budget released by the Trump Administration today is a good start. It makes substantial cuts to ineffective programs and eliminates entire agencies that are unnecessary or wasteful uses of taxpayer funds. This is the boldest budget put out by a White House in recent memory and they deserve credit for making difficult choices. But there is much more work to be done if we are going to eliminate our nearly $20 trillion national debt. The fact is, former President ...

Tea Party Patriots: IRS Must Immediately Release All New Documents Potentially Related to Targeting

Atlanta, GA - Tea Party Patriots co-founder Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today, in response to reports that the IRS found new documents potentially related to the agency's targeting scandal, in which conservatives were targeted for their political beliefs under the Obama Administration. "Years after the Obama Justice Department refused to conduct any real investigation of the IRS targeting scandal, in which conservatives were targeted for their political beliefs, and during which former president Obama laughed it off and claimed there was ‘not a smidgen’ of corruption at the IRS, and years after IRS Commissioner Koskinen ...

Tea Party Patriots: Gov. Christie’s $300M Money Grab From Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield Customers is Wrong

Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots President and co-founder Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today reacting to Gov. Chris Christie’s (R-NJ) proposal to take insurance premiums from Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey for a new government program. “Governor Christies’ scheme to grab $300 million from the reserve funding of Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield is wrong. It is the very essence of government overreach. It would hike premiums, create more risk for the New Jersey health insurance market, and undermine healthcare for all New Jersey tax payers. This scheme appears to be nothing but a PR stunt and a power grab by ...
