Statement of Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of Tea Party Patriots, on Marco Rubio’s announced candidacy

"As we mark the Sixth Anniversary of our original Tax Day rallies, it’s gratifying to see yet another candidate who shares tea party values enter the 2016 presidential race.  We have come a long way, in six years, when three tea party senators are major players in the presidential race. "Sen. Rubio’s personal story inspires, as does his commitment to personal freedom, economic freedom and a debt-free future. "Marco Rubio’s candidacy and the 2016 election are about the future, not the past. He knows first-hand that prosperity comes not from a government program, but from free markets and the hard work done by the millions of individuals ...

Statement of Jenny Beth Martin on Rand Paul’s Announced Candidacy

It’s fitting that Sen. Ted Cruz will be the first announced candidate in the GOP presidential field.

Obama’s transparency problem is worse than you think

Think you’ve seen it all with government secrecy? Think again! A new report from the Associated Press reveals that the Obama Administration has set a new record for denying Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests outright or censoring documents.

Here’s more from the AP analysis [1] It also acknowledged in nearly 1 in 3 cases that its initial decisions to withhold or censor records were improper under the law — but only when it was ...

Trust and transparency in the age of Hillary

The results are in [1],and they’re not surprising. A new survey shows that Americans’ trust in government is at all-time lows. Only 11 percent, for example, have any confidence in the executive branch. The survey’s findings underline the latest scandal enveloping Washington: Hillary Clinton’s private emails.

As Secretary of State, Hillary conducted official business on a private server ...

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. ...
