Our “Keep Your Promises” rally in DC this past Saturday was a huge success. Our message was simple: “It’s time for Congress to fulfill its promises.” We made sure our message was heard loud and clear. Speakers included Stephen Moore, C.L. Bryant, and tea party leaders from around the country, among many others. We had a great turnout and we know Members of Congress will be discussing our rally theme this week.
Will you help us amplify the message of the rally? Will you make sure every Member of Congress hears from us this week?
As we have noted in the past, the next policy fight in Washington is reforming our nation’s broken tax code, and cleaning up the IRS. Our tax code hampers job growth, stifles innovation, and encourages investors to conduct their research and development overseas. Tea Party Patriots is revving up to help on the fight to reform the tax code, and we need your help. Our call to action this week is to start putting pressure on Congress and the White House to begin tackling tax reform.
1. First, please call Congress. We have talking points below to help with your calls. Please make sure both of your U.S. Senators and your U.S. Representative all understand that we are eager to see fundamental tax reform put into place.
It looks like we do not have your address in our system, and therefore, cannot locate the members of Congress that represent your state and district. Please Update Your Profile to have this key information provided in the future. In the meantime, visit our Find your Members of Congress area to locate this contact information, or call the Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121 to be transferred to each office. (NOTE: You will need to call the Capitol Switchboard each time to be transferred.)
2. Please use social media to make your voice heard about tax reform. We have sample tweets below at the bottom of this email.
3. Be sure to visit our Tax Reform Campaign page. It includes a place to sign the petition, a how-to guide to help you get involved, and other talking points and contact numbers to reach our elected officials.
4. Continue to call the White House to ask President Trump to end the illegal and unfair exemption from ObamaCare that Congress currently enjoys. Our message to President Trump is simple here:
“Americans continue to struggle with the devastating effects of ObamaCare. It is unfair and outrageous that our elected officials and their staffers are not living under the same law that we are. It’s time to end the congressional exemption from ObamaCare!”
We look forward to hearing from you about your engagement this week on the subject of tax reform!
Please stay tuned this week for possible urgent calls to action related to repealing ObamaCare.
