Dear Tea Party Patriot,
Today the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released a troubling score of the Obama administration’s proposed budget. Obama claimed that his budget reduced the federal deficit by a trillion dollars, but the non-partisan CBO says that the administration’s estimate miscounted by more than $2 trillion.
Sane people know that you cannot introduce new, gigantic entitlements and reduce spending. Logic has never stopped the liberal establishment from trying to propagate the lie that their policies are “deficit neutral.”
The Tea Party movement was born in direct response to the danger of ballooning deficits, reckless monetary policy, and the bastardization of free market principles by government intervention (bailouts). In the past, a CBO announcement scoring a presidential budget off by $2 trillion would have largely gone unnoticed, especially on the news trash heap known as Friday. We have been awakened, and we are vigilant!
We will continue to share the important news that you do not get from anywhere else. We are battling the establishment and the special interests, but, unlike our opponents, we do not receive government grants or compulsory union dues. We are funded by regular, hardworking patriots just like you who make contributions of any amount.
Our strength is in numbers and your contribution of $10, $25, $50, or whatever you can afford is paired with the contributions of thousands of others to make the Tea Party a powerhouse in American politics. Please, will you support the movement by making a generous contribution?
