|Yesterday, Tea Party Patriots Action released a new ad calling on Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to “do his job, or resign.” Tea Party Patriots Action released the following statement from Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin:
“On behalf of our nationwide network of over 3 million supporters, we call on Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to stop protecting Obama holdovers and Deep State bureaucrats who are politicizing the Department of Justice and FBI, or resign. Rod Rosenstein’s stonewalling and failure to cooperate with legitimate congressional oversight have damaged the credibility of important institutions and undermined critical congressional investigations seeking the truth about the politicization of our national security agencies. Watch our ad with the simple message to Mr. Rosenstein: Do your job and uphold the rule of law or resign from office immediately.”
Earlier this week, President Trump delivered his first address to the nation, highlighting accomplishments, recognizing heroes and unveiling parts of his plan on how to continue making America great again. In case you missed the event, here are the highlights from his State of the Union address that resonated with tea party values:
President Trump honors American heroes
He paid tribute to first responders, to people who stayed behind to help during natural disasters, to the people shielding others in the Las Vegas shooting and to Congressman Steve Scalise who made a speedy recovery from a shooting during a Congressional baseball practice.
A stronger economy
President Trump acknowledged the benefits to the economy since he took office:
“Since the election, we have created 2.4 million new jobs, including 200,000 new jobs in manufacturing alone. After years of wage stagnation, we are finally seeing rising wages.
“Unemployment claims have hit a 45-year low. African-American unemployment stands at the lowest rate ever recorded, and Hispanic American unemployment has also reached the lowest levels in history.
“Small business confidence is at an all-time high. The stock market has smashed one record after another, gaining $8 trillion in value. That is great news for Americans’ 401k, retirement, pension, and college savings accounts.”
Biggest tax cuts and reforms in American history
One of Trump’s biggest accomplishments in 2017 was signing a tax reform package into law. He touched on how it is and will continue to benefit Americans:
“We eliminated an especially cruel tax that fell mostly on Americans making less than $50,000 a year — forcing them to pay tremendous penalties simply because they could not afford government-ordered health plans. We repealed the core of disastrous Obamacare — the individual mandate is now gone.
“We slashed the business tax rate from 35 percent all the way down to 21 percent, so American companies can compete and win against anyone in the world. These changes alone are estimated to increase average family income by more than $4,000.
“Small businesses have also received a massive tax cut, and can now deduct 20 percent of their business income.”
Demands respect for our flag and those who serve under it
“We all share the same home, the same heart, the same destiny, and the same great American flag.
“Together, we are rediscovering the American way.
“And we celebrate our police, our military, and our amazing veterans as heroes who deserve our total and unwavering support.”
From now on, trading relationships will be fair and reciprocal.
“We will work to fix bad trade deals and negotiate new ones. And we will protect American workers and American intellectual property, through strong enforcement of our trade rules.”
Tax reform is working! In the past month, we have seen significant increases in jobs, pay raises, bonuses, benefits and manufacturing coming back into the U.S. Since its passage, tax reform is making America great again!
Workers are receiving their paychecks and noticing that they are taking home a little bit more. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin estimates that 90 percent of American workers will have an increase in their take-home pay! Thanks to Trump’s tax plan, Americans will see more of their hard-earned dollars each month and can start saving or putting it back into the economy!
