Washington DC Tea Party

Tea Party Patriots Bringing the Conscience of America to Washington DC

Hi Patriots,

In the past it has been the "dark side" that has caused us so much angst and made us have to work so hard. I am sorry to report that I have to ask you to go to work again, only this time it is to work against the Republican leadership to defeat allocation of funds to Obamacare.

A federal judge has ruled that Obamacare is unconstitutional, end of argument. The Republican leadership should have no problem honoring their pledge to defund Obamacare, ALL of it, not just parts.

They have the perfect opportunity to defund Obamacare in the Continuing Resolution that the House will be debating and voting on this week. Conspicuously missing is the language to defund Obamacare in all of it's manifestations. It is this oversight, which at this point can only be construed as an intentional play, that spurred Rep. Steve King to propose his amendment to completely defund Obamacare!

Leadership has chosen to hide behind "rules" and have disallowed his amendment in the Rules Committee for probably the same secret reasons that complete defunding is not addressed in the CR. The whole reason for a "Rules Committee" is to establish special rules for large or significant bills that the "normal" House rules don't cover. You have to ask yourselves what are they up to, what is in it for them? Is this another Omnibus like bill with "special political gifts" heretofore known as earmarks and now we just hide them in the bill or include key concessions?

The Republican leadership promised to defund Obamacare and stop it dead in it's tracks! Don't let them pull a fast one like when Senate leadership said they got it on earmarks and then tried to slip a bunch of them through in the Omnibus bill in exchange for their votes. We stopped the Omnibus and now we must stop the funding of Obamacare.

Call your Representatives NOW at the Capitol Switchboard (202)-225-3121 or tollfree (877)-762-8762 and urge them to support Rep Steve King's amendment to completely defund Obamacare. Anything short of that will be seen as a backroom deal and Republican leadership should come squarely into your "crosshairs". They are going to have to either make good on their promises or they become part of the problem and we must seek new solutions in 2012.

We cannot afford to take prisoners where Obamacare is concerned; KILL THE BILL!! I don't know about you but I am tired of the stench coming from the "Swamp". Pay special attention to your newly elected freshmen in the House. We need to nurture and mentor them along they way that they are not led astray.

For Liberty's Sake,

Tom Whitmore

Take The Town Halls To Washington

Nationwide Tea Party Coalition - "Take The Town Halls To Washington"
MEMPHIS, Tennessee (March 5, 2010) - The Nationwide Tea Party Coalition is today announcing a new project, "Take The Town Halls To Washington", which is designed to bring tea party activists to Washington, DC during the month of March to meet, question and review the positions of approximately 60 Democrat members of the House of Representatives whose vote on the pending Health Care legislation has not yet been publicly announced. Tea Party Nation is a collaborating partner in the project.
Spokesman Mark A. Skoda, who is also Chairman of The Memphis TEA Party stated, "President Obama has indicated his willingness to ignore the people and force his bill through Congress using whatever means necessary. Our objective is to bring thousands of constituents to DC to meet with their representatives, capture their comments and produce a review of those positions on a daily basis. We believe that time is of the essence and the people need to understand where these representatives stand before any vote is taken."
Organizer, Michael Patrick Leahy further stated, "After more than a year of tea party resistance to the big government efforts of the Obama Administration, it all comes down to the next 3 weeks. The Administration has made it clear. They intend to ram down the Health Care takeover through a corrupt Congress by the end of this month, in direct defiance of the clearly expressed will of the American people.”
“It is time for every tea party activist across the country to consider dropping everything he or she is doing and join us in the most important battle of our life time. We need your energy, commitment, and efforts to make this succeed. We need you to consider coming to Washington during this 3 week period, and if you can’t come to Washington, be part of this project in your local area.”
A nationwide webcast is scheduled for Tuesday, March 9, 2010 with meetings in DC scheduled to begin the following day through March 31, 2010. Logistics are being coordinated for those coming to Washington and daily briefings and reviews are scheduled during the project. It is expected that visits will take place while Congress is in session from Monday through Friday.
The Nationwide Tea Party Coalition is an informal federation of thirty local tea parties from around the country who work collaboratively on important national projects. It was the group that organized the February 27, 2009 “Nationwide Chicago Tea Party” in 51 cities around the country that launched the Tea Party Movement, as well as the April 15, 2009 Tax Day Tea Party, where 1 million tea party activists attended events in over 900 cities.
