Tea Party Patriots Action Urges Senate to Vote “No” on Democrats’ Stopgap Funding Bill

Atlanta, GA – Tonight, the Senate is expected to vote on a motion to invoke cloture on the motion to proceed to a short-term spending bill that would fund the government until December 16. Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) recently sent a letter to all Republican Senators urging them to oppose any spending bill that sets up a spending vote during the lame duck session. You can read the letter here. TPPA Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement: "It is imperative that Republicans in the Senate, and moderates like Sen. Sinema, vote 'no' on the Democrats' stopgap funding bill. Voting for this continuing resolution, at its presented length, would kneecap the next Congress. This spending bill would only extend until December 16, meaning that the current Democrat-controlled Congress would still have time to complete spending bills for 2023, when many of them will no longer be in Congress. Unchecked and unnecessary spending is a dangerous thing, and no one is more likely to do it than liberal Congressmen with no constituents to answer to. "The last thing the country needs is to have the next Congress stuck with a full year of spending bills from their predecessors. The economy is in decline, wages are down, inflation is up. The southern border is in crisis. Since Joe Biden took office, America has been moving in the wrong direction. The next Congress will have a chance to correct the course, but not if its hands are tied by Democrats in the current Congress. There is no reason to vote for this funding bill. Instead, we need a continuing resolution that lasts until the next Congress can convene, so it will be able to weigh in on the spending its members’ constituents will hold them accountable for."

Tea Party Patriots Action Sends Letter to GOP Senators & Senator Manchin Urging Them to Stand Up for Taxpayers & Oppose September Spending Bill if It Sets Up Spending Vote During Lame Duck Session

Atlanta, GA – Today, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) sent a letter to every Republican Senator and Senator Joe Manchin urging them to vote against any Continuing Resolution (CR) – a short-term spending bill – if it only keeps the government funded through the “lame duck” congressional session between Election Day and the swearing in of the next Congress in January.  In order to protect taxpayers from a “lame duck” spending spree, TPPA is calling for a Continuing Resolution that keeps the government funded until the next Congress convenes in January. To read the full letter, click here.    “Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi are scheming to go on one final reckless spending spree in the waning days of the 117th Congress, and it’s up to you and your Senate Republican colleagues to prevent it,” TPPA Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin wrote in the letter. “Their plan is to pass a short-term Continuing Resolution that would keep the government funded just until mid-December – long enough to get past the November elections without having to worry about a government shutdown, but short enough that it will still allow a lame duck Congress to pass a full-year spending bill.”   “On behalf of the three million supporters of Tea Party Patriots Action, I urge you to vote against any Continuing Resolution that lasts only long enough to keep the government funded until after the November election, but which allows the lame duck Congress to vote in mid-December on a full-year omnibus spending package,” Martin concluded. This summer, Townhall published Ms. Martin’s op-ed, Will Senate Republicans Stand Firm on Spending Negotiations? To read it, click here.

Tea Party Patriots Blast Biden Over Inflammatory Speech in Pennsylvania 

Atlanta, GA – – Tonight, President Biden delivered a speech on the "Continued Battle for the Soul of the Nation" in Philadelphia, PA. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement: "Tonight, President Biden continued his tirade of dishonest rhetoric against those he fears. He repeated his lies that 'MAGA Republicans' are dangerous, doubling down on his errant claims that they're extremist. As a point of fact, the only person in this one-sided back and forth who is dangerous is Joe Biden himself. For centuries oppressive governments have used derogatory labels and incendiary language to target and debase their political opponents, inevitably leading to violence against them from the masses. What Biden is doing is no different. "It's laughable that Biden still thinks of himself as a president of unity. Since taking office, Biden has shown nothing but contempt for Republicans and conservative voters. "Democrats, clearly concerned about midterms, have pulled out their 2016 playbook. Biden's persistent dehumanization of so-called 'MAGA Republicans' and conservative voters is meant to divide the country into truculent partisanship. Just like Democrats' abhorrent behavior while President Trump was in office, Biden is telling the country that over 70 million Americans are their enemy. What more justification for oppression and vitriol do liberals need than the president himself pointing to conservatives and yelling, 'that's your enemy.' "Those who choose to follow the path of dangerous and inflammatory rhetoric know where it leads, to condoned illegal and immoral violence. Everyone taking part in this type of vitriol needs to be swiftly rejected by voters who have had enough and will make their voices heard. “No matter how much division Biden tries to sow, those who love this country, love the Constitution, and love our representative democracy will not take his bait. We...

Tea Party Patriots Action Slams Illegal Biden Order to Cancel Student Loans

 “Pure Socialism” Will Cost Taxpayers $300 Billion Atlanta, GA – – Today, the White announced a plan to cancel up to $20,000 in college loan debt for each borrower who make less than $125,000 annually. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement: “If you paid off your student loans already, you should go to the Post Office and get a change of address form — so you can change your address to ‘Suckerville.’ “This is pure socialism – forcing hardworking taxpayers to pay $300 billion in college student debt that was knowingly and willingly assumed by the debtors.  There is no such thing as loan ‘forgiveness.’ There is only loan transferral. People who knowingly and willingly took in debt will now have that debt assumed by people who did NOT knowingly and willingly take on debt. “This is a moral hazard and it’s ‘reverse class warfare’ with the biggest burden being shouldered by those who never went to college.   “Economically, Biden’s action will further fuel inflation at a time when it’s already out of control because of the Democrats’ record spending spree. “Legally, Biden does not have the authority to have taxpayers assume $300 billion in debt with the stroke of a pen.  Speaker Pelosi has admitted as much, which means Biden is knowingly taking illegal action for partisan gain.  Again.  This is simply outrageous. “We are confident the courts will overturn Biden’s order but it will cause tremendous chaos in the meantime.”

Tea Party Patriots Action Files Complaint Against Judge Who Approved Raid on Trump Residence

Judge Reinhart Had a Conflict of Interest & a Pattern of Bias, Should Be Removed as a Federal Magistrate Atlanta, GA – –Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) announced today that it filed a complaint for “unethical and prejudicial conduct” against Judge Bruce E. Reinhart, the judge who approved the warrant to search President Trump’s residence. The complaint accuses Judge Reinhart of having a “conflict of interest and a pattern and history of hostility to President Trump.”  The complaint then lists seven “undisputed facts” supporting the accusation.  The complaint was filed in the Judicial Council of the Eleventh Circuit. To read it, click here. Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement: “Judge Reinhart acted unethically in approving the warrant to search President Trump’s residence. Judge Reinhart is a Democrat who donated to former President Obama.  The judge publicly denigrated former President Trump in social media posts. Just two months ago, he recused himself from a lawsuit involving President Trump in his suit against Hillary Clinton, citing a ‘conflict of interest.’ He has a history of ethical issues, most notably his conduct during the Jeffrey Epstein investigation and prosecution. He should be disciplined and removed as a federal magistrate. The entire episode involving the search of former President Trump’s home threatens the principle of ‘equal justice under law’ and the confidence of the American people in an unbiased judiciary.”

Tea Party Patriots Action Reacts to House Passage of Inflation Reduction Act

Atlanta, GA – – Today, the U.S. House passed the Inflation Reduction Act.  President Biden will sign the bill into law. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement: “After a year of negotiating among themselves, Democrats in Congress have passed a slimmed down version of ‘Build Back Better’ – even while knowing that further spending will continue to fuel the record-high inflation they created and increased taxes will further slow our economy.  Rarely do you see a bill that is so tone deaf and destructive.  This proves that Democrats care more about left-wing interest groups than American job creators and hardworking American taxpayers. The American people will not forget this left-wing assault on our fragile economy.”

Tea Party Patriots Action Calls For Biden Impeachment After Raid of Trump Residence

Atlanta, GA – Today, the FBI searched the Mar-a-Lago home of former President Trump. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement:  “Joe Biden must be impeached. The raid on President Trump’s home should have never happened. It is beyond wrong. It is obviously part of the ongoing witch hunt that began before President Trump ever took office, and which continues to this day. “President Obama’s IRS unlawfully targeted citizen groups that dared to oppose Obama policies. Now President Biden’s FBI and DOJ have continued the tradition of politicizing federal agencies and have upped the ante by attacking a former president. “We are supposed to be a constitutional republic not a banana republic. This madness must be stopped. “Anyone and everyone who cares about the future of our constitutional republic must get out to vote in record numbers in the fall elections. We must elect a Congress that will use its constitutional oversight and power of the purse to rein in an out-of-control executive and return power to the people.”

Tea Party Patriots Action Slams Deficit-Reduction Gimmick in Manchin-Schumer Deal

Atlanta, GA – Two days after the release of the Manchin-Schumer reckless tax-and-spend plan, the economists at the Penn Wharton Budget Model released their analysis of the plan, showing that its so-called “deficit reduction” is negligible. In response, Tea PartyPatriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement: “Joe Manchin’s favorite economists have shown that his plan’s so-called ‘deficit reduction’ is virtually nonexistent. According to the Penn Wharton Budget Model analysis, the ‘deficit reduction’ is $248 billion over ten years, not $300 billion. And that’s only if you don’t do the real analysis, and count the cost of the expanded ObamaCare subsidies for the full ten years, rather than only counting the front-end-loaded three years included in this plan. If you do the proper calculation for the full ten years, the ten-year deficit reduction shrinks to just $89 billion — less than a third of the advertised savings — a virtually nonexistent amount in a multi-trillion dollar budget. “This should surprise no one. This is what Democrats did with the initial rollout of ObamaCare more than a decade ago — they launched the benefits at the front end, and delayed the costs until after the next presidential election. It is an irresponsible method of governing, and it should be defeated now as it should have been defeated then.” “The growth would be even more historic if we cut taxes AND cut spending at the same time. It takes enormous courage to do either one of these, much less both at the same time. Either one or both will end the cycle.”

Tea Party Patriots Action Opposes Proposed So-Called “Assault Weapons” Ban Legislation

Atlanta, GA – Today, the U.S. House Judiciary Committee will take up proposed legislation that would ban certain so-called “assault weapons.” The bill, sponsored by Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.), would prohibit the sale, transfer, import and manufacture of hundreds of models of semi-automatic weapons. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement: “The U.S. Constitution is very clear about the Second Amendment, which says, ‘the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.' There is no asterisk, no secret note listing exceptions to the words 'shall not be infringed.' Democrats want to trample the Constitution, and in the process would be removing the ability for law-abiding American citizens to exercise their Second Amendment right. It's no secret that many liberals would be happy to strip citizens of the right to bear arms entirely and would settle for accomplishing that inch by inch, which is why it is especially important that we firmly stand up against the infringing of any of our Constitutional rights." While Ms. Martin’s two children were in high school, two would-be shooters were planning an attack on the high school and were caught before the attack. They were convicted and sentenced to prison for decades.

Tea Party Patriots Action Applauds SCOTUS Ruling Overturning Roe v. Wade

Atlanta, GA – On Friday morning, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) issued its ruling in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, ruling that the Constitution does not confer a right to abortion. As a result, Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania v. Casey were overruled. Authority to regulate abortion is now returned to the people and their elected representatives.In response, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement: “Today’s Supreme Court ruling is a victory for constitutional governance. The Constitution is silent on the matter of abortion, and the Supreme Court that issued the Roe ruling 49 years ago was simply wrong when it did so. With the issuance of today’s ruling, the five members of the Supreme Court who joined to overturn Roe have courageously taken a stand in defense of constitutional principles, and we applaud them for it. The question of abortion now goes back to the states and to the democratic process, where it should have been all along.”
