Tax Reform is Still Relevant and is Still Working

Tax reform is just as important now as it was during the battle to pass Trump’s Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. While we reap the benefits of the tax cuts, we must maintain vigilance to ensure the Democrats don’t try to raise them again. The best way is to educate those who don’t realize they actually are keeping more of their money. Here's who’s winning: Winning: Most US taxpayers The vast majority of American tax filers — more than 65% — will see their overall tax burden decrease by at least $100, according to the congressional Joint Committee on Taxation. See page 7 of this helpful analysis. Slightly less than 30% of filers will see ...

Socialism Rears Its Old Ugly Head

When it comes to political philosophy, there are two ideas so intrinsically opposite they cannot help but clash together in fiery ways. Conservatism, a pillar of society in the United States, and Socialism, the economic and political system that has ravaged countless fledgling nations and decimated populations. How has this horrible idea once again taken hold in the minds of Americans, youths especially? Heritage may have an answer: Is a specter of socialism haunting America, especially among our millennials? There is disquieting evidence of many young Americans’ sympathy for socialism. Exhibit A: 2.052 million people under the age of 30 voted for ...

Tea Party Patriots Action strongly opposes the budget-busting Bipartisan Budget Act of 2019

On behalf of the three million members and supporters of Tea Party Patriots Action, we strongly oppose H.R. 3877, the budget-busting Bipartisan Budget Act of 2019, and we urge all members of the House and Senate to vote AGAINST the bill. Eight years ago this summer, Congress enacted the Budget Control Act of 2011. That law – passed by a Republican House and a Democrat Senate, with a Democrat in the White House, at a time when the economy was not doing nearly as well as it is now – laid out topline spending limits for the next ten years. Virtually all of today’s congressional leadership voted for that law and for the spending limits contained ...

Ten Years of the Tea Party; We’re Not Going Anywhere

Ten years have gone by and the tea party movement is more important than ever! We started as a group of citizens fed up with the bad behavior in Washington and soon became a nationwide grassroots organization. It seems only yesterday that patriots all around the country were watching CNBC business news editor Rick Santelli rant about the housing crisis bailouts and saying everything that Americans were feeling. Hours after his rant, the tea party began its planning. In those early days, we organized a conference call, organized rallies, and got the word out. On February 27, 2009, the movement was coordinated across 40 different cities and people ...

Patriot Spotlight: A Tea Party for Veterans

Gregg Cummings is a true patriot who bleeds red, white and blue. He's a veteran and a former police officer still dedicated to serving his country. He didn't get involved in the tea party movement until he heard Nancy Pelosi include veterans as she read the terror watch list aloud. Cummings also felt the same frustration that Rick Santelli expressed during his famous rant. Cummings' journey with the movement began when he attended the Des Moines Tea Party rally on Tax Day. When he got home, he started We The People Tea Party of Southern Iowa. He held his very own tea party rally on Memorial Day to honor all veterans, past and present. The tea ...

Tea Party Patriots Action Urges the U.S. Senate to Confirm The President’s Judicial Nominees

Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today, urging the U.S. Senate to confirm all of President Trump’s judicial nominees. “President Trump is keeping his promise to nominate exceptionally qualified judges with a record of adhering to the Constitution and following the rule of law. But because Senate Democrats have engaged in an unprecedented campaign of obstruction, there are now more than 160 lower federal court vacancies – more than existed when President Trump first took office. Democrats must put aside their partisan, gridlock politics and join with their Republican ...
