Honoring the heroes of Las Vegas and other things you need to know this week

Earlier this week, a tragedy hit the nation and claimed the lives of 58 people and injured hundreds of others. We at Tea Party Patriots want to take a moment to remember the victims who lost their lives and to continuing praying for the wounded and the families who lost loved ones Sunday night. We also want to honor those who risked their lives to prevent more lives from being taken by the shooter. Read more about the stories of the heroic civilians and first responders here.

The GOP’s new tax reform plan, unveiled last week, is finally being debated in Washington. After eight years of reckless government spending and harmful tax increases under former President Obama, the American people deserve tax relief and a tax system that is simpler, flatter, and fairer. Republicans in Congress have thus far failed to keep their promise to fully repeal ObamaCare. They cannot afford to break another promise made to the American people.

We can agree that the current tax system does NOT work for America! Lawmakers need to stop disappointing the people who put them in office and they need to stay true to their promises. Show your support for the new plan and urge Washington lawmakers to get behind this much-needed reform.


Last week, President Trump picked two conservative Texans, Texas Supreme Court Justice Don R. Willett and Dallas appellate lawyer James C. Ho, to serve on the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Both have an overwhelming amount of experience and have received high praise from their colleagues. So, what’s the problem? Unfortunately, Trump’s recent nominations will be added to a long list of judicial nominees awaiting confirmation from the Senate.

Democrats continue to abuse their power to either delay or obstruct final votes on President Trump’s judicial nominees. These politicians should be held accountable for their actions — or lack thereof! Help Tea Party Patriots urge Senate Republicans to support Senator Lankford’s proposed gridlock reforms that will ensure well-qualified judges will be appointed to the federal bench. Sign the petition to end Senate gridlock!

Confirm The President’s Nominees

 


According to a new CEI report, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is structured in an unconstitutional manner despite its name and stated mission, actually serves to harm the very consumers it claims to protect. The controversial agency, created at the behest of Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren and her far-left allies, asked for a unique structure to insulate the fledgling agency from the type of strict oversight from elected officials that marks almost every other government agency in the executive branch. Without such oversight, the CFPB has three very unusual features that make it less accountable to the American people:

  1. Its funding comes not from congressional appropriations but from the Federal Reserve, which is to supply whatever the director requests up to a certain amount;
  2. It is headed by a single director appointed for a fixed term of five years who may not be fired by the president except for “cause,” such as dereliction of duty or malfeasance; and
  3. The courts are required to give extra deference to the CFPB’s decisions in some cases.

The CFPB is another example of how big government should not operate and it needs to stop! Significant reforms are needed to ensure CFPB operates under the same constitutional checks and balances that are required for other government agencies, but the findings of the CEI report raise an even more fundamental question: if the CFPB is failing in its stated mission and is actually harming millions of consumers, Congress should consider whether we would be better off without the CFPB entirely. Read more…
