The Tea Party vindication

John Hayward

From RedState.com, By: John Hayward, 10/18/13-  Tea Party supporters are supposed to be disheartened by how the great shutdown saga turned out.  We’re back where we started, following an expense of political capital that achieved nothing, with polls showing damage to the Republican “brand.”  Worse, the balance of power in our representative government has permanently shifted toward the executive branch.  The legislature is now virtually powerless.  Raising the debt ceiling is a hollow ritual to be performed every few months.  Continuing resolutions to fund the no-budget government will continue, on automatic pilot, forever.  The House will never dare exert its entirely hypothetical “power of the purse” again.

Tea Party blasts stopgap budget deal

Ted Cruz

From The Washington Examiner, by Susan Ferrichio,Washington may be breathing a sigh of relief now that Democrats and Republicans have cut a deal on a spending plan that will keep the federal government operating until after the election, but the Tea Party is accusing both sides of being gutless.

The Tea Party Patriots, one of the movement’s largest organizations, sent an angry note to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, blasting the deal because it sustains current spending levels through March without any additional cuts.

About The TEA Party Patriots of Parker County:

The Legitimate Parker County Tea Party of Texas is a grassroots group of Americans united to share our common value – that the Constitution of the United States should be the governance of our land. It should not be re-interpreted or revised in meaning to meet the needs to special interests or political favors. We’re concerned about reckless overspending, unfair and punitive taxation, and the increasing lack of government constraints. We are peaceful American citizens that organize protests and rallies in Parker County, Texas. We’re not contained by any particular ideology or party, but strive to be a pluralistic and populist movement committed to Liberty, especially economic liberty.
