WASHINGTON REPORT FOR 10/16/17

CALL TO ACTION

At Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund, we have rolled out our new tax reform action plan, and we have two priority projects. The first is our nationwide house party effort. House parties have proven to be some of our most successful activist engagement opportunities. Will you help us by hosting a house party? Please sign up to host a house party and we will ship a kit to you with everything you need to host your own party.

Please take the following actions this week to put pressure on Congress and the White House:

  1. First, please continue calling Congress at 202.224.3121 (the switchboard). Suggested talking points are listed below. Please make sure both of your U.S. Senators and your U.S. Representative all understand that we are eager to see fundamental tax reform put into place.
  2. Please make your voice heard on the topic of tax reform on social media. Suggested tweets are listed in the right column.
  3. Download our Tax Reform How-to-Guide.
  4. Sign our tax reform petition. Our petitions are the easiest and most effective way to make your voice heard.
And don’t forget to share this important petition on social media!
Finally, please call the White House to let President Trump know that we think it is absolutely unacceptable that Congress is still not living under ObamaCare’s rules like the rest of us have to do. Congress has its own special carve-out from ObamaCare. We think this is more than unfair — it is absolutely immoral! — and we are determined to make sure Congress lives under the same laws as the rest of Americans. The White House switchboard can be reached at:  202.456.1414. Our message to President Trump is simple: “Americans continue to struggle with the devastating effects of ObamaCare. It is unfair and outrageous that our elected officials and their staffers are not living under the same law that we are. It’s time to end the congressional exemption from ObamaCare!”

TALKING POINTS ON TAX REFORM

  • The U.S. tax code is complicated and unwieldy. It is a drain on our economy.
  • Americans waste time and money preparing their taxes each year because our tax code is so complicated.
  • Tax reform in our country is long overdue.
  • Americans want a tax code that is flatter, with fewer brackets.
  • Americans want a tax code that is simpler, with less need to employ accountants and tax attorneys to navigate the code.
  • Our current tax system slows economic growth, and reduces opportunity and wages for all Americans.
  • President Trump campaigned on pro-growth tax reform, and the American people stand behind him on that goal.
  • Americans are ready for tax reform that moves our nation forward.
  • Republicans have pledged to make our tax reform simpler by reducing the number of tax brackets — a definite step in the right direction!
  • The proposed tax reform will make the United States a better place to invest and do business, which will translate into a stronger economy and more jobs.
  • Americans are eager for tax relief, and the GOP is right to prioritize this issue.

Last week at Tea Party Patriots

Tea Party Patriots applauded President Trump for taking action to provide relief from ObamaCare, read our statement.

Tea Party Patriots applauded President Trump’s immigration priorities, read our statement.

Tea Party Patriots has been working since 2015 to fight this egregious deal that benefits Iran more than it benefits the United States. Last week, we sent a letter to the president urging him to decertify the deal and use the bully pulpit to demand Congress re-impose sanctions.

Last week, conservative leaders asked Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to step down.

Former President Obama and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren created the CFPB, a left-wing regulatory agency that is insulated from Congressional oversight, which is being run by liberal bureaucrat Richard Cordray. Cordray is defying President Trump’s agenda of providing regulatory relief to American families and businesses so he can endear himself to left-wing activists he hopes will support his run as a Democrat to be the next Governor of Ohio – he should quit now!

Tea Party Patriots called on President Trump to enforce Open Skies agreements.
