Here’s an example of one of the TEA party freshmen, Renee Ellmers, R-NC, trying to explain her “yes” vote on the debt increase while being interviewed on a Raleigh North Carolina radio station: http://wp.me/pwmBO-69c
Though the “TEA party freshmen” were in essence elected to their seats in the House of Representatives in large part due to the support and backing of the TEA party.
Some of them chose to go against their constituents and vote with Speaker of the House John Boehner’s compromised plan. Even though the majority of the TEA party members were out in their districts sending emails, letters, making phone calls, sending faxes and sends millions of tweets for the Representatives and Speaker Boehner to “hold the line” and “no more debt ceiling increases, no matter what”. But much to our shagrin, some of them caved along with Boehner and the other House leaders. Giving Obama, Reid and especially Pelosi almost exactly what they were wanting.
I know by now this is all old news, but with the up and coming elections for this November, we citizens of America still have an awful lot at stake. I for one am very concerned that too much has already gone on that has built the infrastructure of this “fundamental transformation” of this country, whether we all want our country changed or not.
One of the TEA party sites posted a video that helps to describe what the progressive movement has done to our monetary system and I want to share it with all of you. It shocked me to realize exactly how much “infrastructure” is already actually in place and these people have been working on this for over 130 years. When they began this movement, they knew they would never see it completed in their lifetimes and now that it is working masterfully, with their man sitting in the White House, as of now, it’s going to take us more than our lifetime to undo everything they have put into place……IF IT CAN BE UNDONE AT ALL!!
