Not passing legislation that Americans oppose is key to gaining support
Washington - Tea Party Patriots, the nation's largest Tea Party organization with more than 2,000 affiliates, today offered the President and the Democratic Party advice on how they can halt their well-documented free-fall in national public opinion polls.
"The Tea Party is growing and our candidates are winning primary contests across the country," said Mark Meckler, Co-Founder and National Coordinator of Tea Party Patriots. "All the Democrats need to do is listen to the American people about their concerns, and embrace the core values of the Tea Party Patriots."
The Core Values of Tea Party Patriots are:
- Fiscal Responsibility
- Constitutionally Limited Government
- Free Markets
"It's not too late for struggling candidates to reverse their fortunes," said Jenny Beth Martin, Co-Founder and National Coordinator of Tea Party Patriots. "It can be done with just a few simple policy changes that are widely supported by the American people."
Meckler and Martin recommend that Democrats immediately:
Suspend stimulus spending and return the unspent money to the Federal Treasury. The stimulus is not working, in fact, it may be hurting. A better policy would involve lowering taxes and adopting other policies that support private sector hiring and spending. These are well-known job creators that stimulate the economy and prosperity.
Repeal ObamaCare. The American people hate this program. They have figured out that the president didn't tell the truth about people being able to keep their insurance and their doctors. And, they don't want giant government programs with thousands of new bureaucrats dictating their treatments. This program is killing the Democratic Party, and the sooner they ditch it the sooner they can get back into the good graces of the American people. More important, repealing it will save the United States from bankruptcy because ObamaCare is a financial train wreck!
Drop the Arizona lawsuit. Democratic governors met with the President this past week and told him that his lawsuit against Arizona was "toxic." The Democratic governors are right. Arizona is trying to protect its people from violent drug criminals that are invading Arizona across a border that Democrats refuse to patrol and seal. Why should the people of Arizona risk their lives so the President can build the Democratic Party with more illegal voters?
We are confident that the Democratic Party can "feel the love" of the American people once again. All they need to do is quit passing legislation that destroys our economy, grows government and strips the American people of their liberty and freedoms. "It really is just that simple," said Meckler.
Tea Party Patriots is a national grassroots coalition with more than 2,000 locally organized chapters and more than 15 million supporters nationwide. Tea Party Patriots is a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to promoting the principles of fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government, and free markets.
