Tea Party Patriots Actions Release Two Letters Urging Faster Re-Opening of The Economy
Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin – responding to today’s new unemployment numbers showing American employment continuing its precipitous decline, and the concomitant need to reopen the economy – today released two letters to the White House spearheaded by TPPA.
“All over America, our fellow citizens are ready to go back to work,” said Martin. “We have seen the coronavirus, and we appreciate President Trump’s leadership in protecting us. But it is time to start planning and preparing to reopen the American economy, sooner rather than later.
“In a survey of our members and supporters that we just completed, we found a stunning statistic – fully 80 percent of our members and supporters know someone who has lost his or her job. And 60 percent actually have a family member who has lost his or her job. That’s just too much.
“Conservative leaders and grassroots activists are ready. We want to be ready to go when the time is right. And that means we cannot afford to wait any longer in beginning the planning for the reopening of our economy.”
The first letter, signed by a number of conservative leaders, urges President Trump to establish a new task force to plan and prepare for the reopening of the American economy sooner, rather than later; the second is a letter signed by more than 5,000 grassroots activists which urges the same action.
In addition to Martin, other signers of the conservative leaders’ letter include former U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint; economist Stephen Moore; MRC Chairman L. Brent Bozell III; CNP Action, Inc. Chairman Kelly Shackelford; Liberty Consulting President Ginni Thomas; CNP President William Walton; LFR President Colin Hanna; Foley & Lardner LLP Partner Cleta Mitchell; Leadership Institute President Morton Blackwell; Conservative Action Project Chairman Alfred Regnery; CPI ED Ed Corrigan; former U.S. Rep. Bob McEwen; TPPA Board Member William W. Pascoe, III; FreedomWorks President Adam Brandon; FreedomWorks VP Noah Wall; and Senate Conservatives Fund ED Mary Vought.
The two letters are attached in one attachment.
