Tea Party Patriots
We have a lot of important updates this week. Please take a look!
Visit Your Congressman’s Office Next Week to Help Stop the Iran Deal:
We must stand up and push back against the horrible Iran deal. We are calling for all Tea Party activists to visit your local Congressional offices on Thursday, August 27, 2015, at noon local time to tell your Senators or Representative to stop President Obama’s Iran Nuclear Deal.
We have created a toolkit to help you with your visit. We encourage everyone to at least drop off a letter. In areas where Tea Party groups exist, we are asking your group to organize and show up in a group. We have to get a veto proof majority in the Senate and the best way to do that is to this protest.
Save the Date – Washington, DC on September 9, 2015 at 2pm EDT:
We’re finally excited to announce that WE WILL be protesting in Washington, DC, on Wednesday, September 9, 2015, at 2pm EDT on the West Lawn of the US Capitol. We hope you can join us. We are working to building a bi-partisan coalition to push back on this bad Iran nuclear deal. Senator Cruz has been leading the fight on this and asked us if we would help. We’re happy to answer that call and we hope that you can, too. More details will be coming soon, but we are confirmed for 2pm EDT on 9/9/2015. Please go ahead and make plans to be there!
Attend a Town Hall Event Near You:
Our friends from Heritage Action have been keeping track of town hall events while Congress is on August recess. You should check their site often to find events in your area. We encourage you to go to a town hall event and take this guide for some suggested questions to ask. We’re trying to get them on the record on very important issues when they are back home. Record their answers with your cell phones and send it in to us if you are able to get them responding to any of these questions.
End Congress’s Obamacare Exemption:
Earlier this week, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker has joined Senator Ted Cruz as the second Republican presidential candidate promising to end Congress’ special exemption from Obamacare. Walker said ending the exemption for Congress will “light a fire” under lawmakers and give them reason to fully repeal President Obama’s failed government takeover of Americans’ health care. We need your help to ensure Congress lives by the same laws as we do!

Fire The Speaker:
Congressman Mark Meadows of North Carolina has filed a resolution to declare that the Office of the Speaker is vacant. His resolution charges that Speaker John Boehner has: 1) Consolidated power and decision-making, bypassing the 435 Members of Congress and the people they represent. 2) Rendered Congress subservient to the Executive and Judicial Branches, diminishing the voice of the American people. 3) Used the power of his office to punish Members of Congress who vote according to their conscience. And 4) Consistently provided voice votes on controversial legislation without notice in order to pass it without resistance. Sign our petition if you think it is time for Speaker John Boehner to be replaced as Speaker of the House!
