On Thursday, February 27, 2014, the Tea Party movement will be five years old. Five years ago, Americans around the country spontaneously united to stand up to government waste, government overreach and government abuse. Five years ago, we said “no more” to watching our elected officials ignore the Constitution and the free market principles this country was founded on. With the auto bailouts, stimulus packages, Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP), and the utter abandonment of fiscal responsibility, it was clear Washington was in need of a serious intervention.
Five years later, the Tea Party movement has made significant progress. The 2010 landslide elections showed us that the American people are tired of being let down by spend-happy politicians in Washington. Last year during the budget battle, we learned when we are united, we can accomplish great things, like forcing Congress to listen to the people and stand up to President Obama. Still, there’s work to be done. America still has serious challenges ahead in the form of Obamacare, immigration reform, and runaway spending.
On February 27, the Tea Party Patriots will gather at the Hyatt Capitol Hill to celebrate the movement’s five-year anniversary, reflect on past successes, and pave a path forward. Join Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin and other liberty-loving Americans including Sen. Mike Lee (UT), Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX), and Rep. Steve King (IA), as we continue to fight for limited government and fiscal responsibility.
