Conservatives to Congress: “Don’t Reauthorize Ex-Im Bank”

Atlanta, Ga. – On Wednesday, Tea Party Patriots, along with other conservative leaders, will host a press conference to call on the leadership of the U.S. House and U.S. Senate to eliminate any path to reauthorization of the Export-Import bank in upcoming legislation being considered by Congress. "We have consistently opposed the Ex-Im Bank's reauthorization because the Bank represents everything that is wrong with Washington, DC," said Jenny Beth Martin, President and Co-Founder of Tea Party Patriots. "It is the worst combination of crony capitalism, back-room deals, corporate welfare, and abuse of tax dollars. The death of the Ex-Im Bank is ...

Hillary Clinton Under Fire For Comments About Congressional Subpoena

Hillary Clinton is facing scrutiny after finally giving an interview to CNN. In the interview, she claimed she was never subpoenaed by Congress – a statement contrary to records produced Wednesday by the House Select Committee on Benghazi. “You know, you’re starting with so many assumptions,” Clinton said after Brianna Keilar of CNN asked the presidential hopeful how Clinton decided to “delete 33,000 emails” while secretary of state. “I’ve never had a subpoena. Again, let’s take a deep breath here. Everything I did was permitted by law and regulation,” Clinton said. Chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi Rep. Trey ...

Obamacare is putting more people in the ER

Another day, another Obamacare myth, debunked. This time, the oh-so-popular selling point about Obamacare and emergency room visits is being thoroughly disproved by cold, hard numbers. Remember back when Obamacare proponents argued health reform would lower the number of ER visits? That it would solve the “free-rider” problem [1] of non-insured Americans showing up at ER’s to get free care? Yeah, that’s not exactly what’s happening. Emergency room visits are on the rise, reports the Wall Street Journal, and have been for the last couple years. And here’s the real kicker: it’s mostly because of Obamacare. Reports the WSJ [2]: ...

An Obamacare cautionary tale in California

A bombshell new report up at The Daily Signal exposes the vast problems plaguing California’s Obamacare insurance exchange. It’s true that for a long time, California was held up as sort of a national model for how states should be implementing their health care exchanges.

Reports The Daily Signal [1]: Whether it’s falling far short of 2015 enrollment goals or sending out 100,000 inaccurate tax forms, Covered California is struggling with its share of challenges.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) & Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) Tax Day Tele Townhall With Tea Party Patriots – April 15, 2015

(Photo Credits: Public Domain, Wikipedia (1 and 2) On April 15, Tea Party Patriots was honored to have two tax-fighting conservatives on our Tax Day Tele Townhall: Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH). Except for President Obama, no one looks forward to Tax Day. Shamefully, the tax code has grown into a 70,000+ page monster, the IRS has been used as a weapon against Americans for their political and religious beliefs, and politicians use it to hide favoritism for special interest groups in the form of tax credits. On our tele townhall, both Senator Lee and Rep. Jordan described in detail why we must simplify our tax ...
