Yesterday, Speaker of the House John Boehner allowed the House to pass a clean bill to raise the debt limit. Clearly, Boehner is no longer willing to stand up and fight for fiscal restraint and common sense. Three years ago, Boehner promised the debt limit would not be raised unless it was accompanied by significant spending cuts. Now, he's either given up, or he no longer cares about the budget deficit and the financial future of this country.
"A clean debt ceiling is a complete capitulation on the Speaker's part and demonstrates that he has lost the ability to lead the House of Representatives, let alone his own party," said Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin. It's time to show Boehner that he's caved to Obama and the Democrats for the last time and we need your help to send him a message!
Please call Speaker Boehner's office NOW at (855) 248-1559 and tell him we can't afford his leadership anymore and he should resign as Speaker! Also, visit firethespeaker.com

This year also marks an important milestone for Tea Party Patriots. On February 27, 2014, we will gather at the Hyatt Capitol Hill to celebrate our five-year anniversary, and embark on a new plan in our fight against big government and irresponsible leadership. The last five years have brought significant triumphs, but there's more work to do. If we're going to permanently change the way Washington does business, we need to make our voice heard!
Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin will be there with other liberty-loving Americans including radio host and best-selling author Mark Levin, Sen. Mike Lee (UT), Southwest Metro Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder and Minnesota State Rep. Cindy Pugh, Center for Self-Governance President Mark Herr, Washington Blueprint Organizer Woody Herzog, Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX), Mansfield Tea Party Founder Marianne Gasiecki and Rep. Steve King (IA).
