Establishment Concedes Tea Party Position as a Winner


Immigration and Obamacare are Keys to 2014 Elections

ATLANTA, GA – Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder, Jenny Beth Martin, today issued the following statement in response to the House GOP Leadership’s remarks on Obamacare and immigration reform.

Tea Party Patriots and millions of other conservatives have been right all along on immigration reform and Obamacare, and the fact that the Republican leadership is walking back its ill-conceived positions on those critical issues is proof.

We appreciate Speaker Boehner’s apology for mocking conservatives who insist that we secure our borders and not grant amnesty to those who have broken our laws and come to the United States illegally.  He may have meant his mocking to be a joke, but I assure you Mr. Speaker, we are not laughing.

As for Republican Conference Chairwoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers running away from her quotes on Obamacare, it’s overdue.  Instead of Cathy McMorris Rodgers raising the white flag on Obamacare, we need her and others in Congress to fight harder than ever to repeal this monstrosity.

Speaker Boehner and Congresswoman McMorris Rodgers have acknowledged that the conservative Tea Party position on Obamacare and immigration are the right positions for America.  Now, we have to make sure their actions match their words.
