Jenny Beth Martin speaks at the Capitol Building.

This week has been a very busy one for Tea Party Patriots. Earlier this week Tea Party Patriots joined Senator Ted Cruz, Senator Mike Lee, Congressman Jim Jordan, Bill Flores, Senate Conservatives Fund, Heritage Action, and Club for Growth outside the Capitol building urging Congressional leadership to resist the temptation of reviving the Export-Import bank.  I appreciate these Members of Congress taking the lead in this fight. The lapse of the bank's charter earlier this year was a victory for our movement. It is critical we remain vigilant on this issue because leadership in Congress is working to reauthorize the bank. Out of $2.2 ...

Megyn Kelly Slams Obama For Not Contacting Steinle Family in Wake of Daughter’s Death

Fox News Anchor Megyn Kelly questioned President Obama recently for not giving Kate Steinle, the 32-year-old San Francisco woman murdered by an illegal immigrant with a rap sheet, the same attention he gave to the cases of Freddie Brown, Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin. Real Clear Politics has the transcript: MEGYN KELLY: Breaking tonight, the young woman gunned down by an illegal immigrant in San Francisco was just laid to rest, surrounded by friends and family.

BREAKING: Americans don’t trust big government

Pres. Ronald Regan once famously said that “the nine most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” Reagan may have uttered those words decades ago, but - according to a new poll – they still ring true today. An overwhelming majority of Americans don’t trust the federal government. A full 61 percent of American voters don’t have faith in the powers that run Washington. What’s equally startling is that trust among registered Independents has dropped 32 percentage points since 2002. For Republicans, trust has gone from 63 percent to 25 percent. When voters are asked about President ...

ObamaCare’s Fifth Birthday Makes Us Sick

Five years ago today, without a single Republican vote, Congress rammed the unconstitutional Protection and Affordable Care Act into law. We know it as “Obamacare.” As former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) one famously said, “[W]e have to pass [Obamacare], so that you can find out what is in it.” Five years later, we now know why this massive overhaul of America’s already imperfect healthcare system was rushed through at rapid speed before the public could scrutinize the details. Despite President Barack Obama’s promises that if you liked your plan, you could keep it, millions of people have lost their insurance coverage. Millions ...

SCOTUS takes on Obamacare, round two

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in King v. Burwell. The stakes [1] couldn’t be higher. At issue is the legality of Obamacare subsidies. The Obama Administration must argue it has the legal authority to issue subsidies in all 50 states, even though the Affordable Care Act only allows for subsidies through an “exchange established by the state.” That very point was driven home by none other than Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber, who admitted in 2012 that [2], "[I]f you're a state and you don’t set up an Exchange, that means your citizens don’t get their tax credits. “ If the court upholds the challenge, it ...

TPP to make presence felt at King/Burwell

Atlanta – Tea Party Patriots (TPP) will be out in force Wednesday to make their voices heard as the U.S. Supreme Court hears arguments King v. Burwell, the historic case that could decide the future of Obamacare. “We’re hopeful that the Justices will apply the plain meaning of the words in the statute,” TPP President Jenny Beth Martin said. “The law clearly says that Obamacare subsidies are legal only in states that have set up healthcare exchanges.” Many legal experts have predicted if the Court rules that the words in the statute mean what they say, President Obama’s nationalization of the healthcare system will be unraveled. ...
