We need to call Mitch McConnell as well as your own senators to tell them to pass the Graham-Cassidy bill as a step towards fully repealing ObamaCare. Please call Mitch McConnell at 202.224.2541. Please use the search functionality below to find your senators’ phone numbers.

The next big policy fight in Washington on the horizon is reforming our nation’s broken tax code. Our tax code hampers job growth, stifles innovation, and encourages investors to conduct their research and developer overseas. Tea Party Patriots is revving up to help on the fight to reform the tax code, and we need your help. Our call to action this week is simple and will help us get everything in place for fundamental tax reform that moves our country forward.
  1. Please call Congress at 202.224.3121 (the switchboard). We have talking points below to guide your calls. Please make sure both of your U.S. Senators and your U.S. Representative all understand that Americans are eager to see fundamental tax reform put into place.
  2. Please use social media to make your voice heard about tax reform. We have sample tweets below, as well.
  3. Be sure to sign our petition on the tax reform. Our petitions are, hands down, the easiest and most effective way to make your voice heard. And please share this important petition on social media.

Last week at Tea Party Patriots

88 Conservative Groups Urge Passage of Pro-Growth Tax Reform

We sat down with Sen. Santorum to discuss a proposal to address ObamaCare.

We had Senator James Lankford discuss his proposal for gridlock reform with us.

We discussed the latest polling results with John McLaughlin.

The Senate parliamentarian has ruled that Republicans can only repeal ObamaCare with a 51-vote majority until September 30. After that, the reconciliation vehicle that allows them to avoid a Democrat filibuster will expire. Last week, Senators Lindsey Graham and Bill Cassidy introduced a bill to push for one last vote.

We continued to work on the Congressional Exemption from Obamacare.

We continued to focus on the enforcement of the Open Skies Treaties.
