TPP Tele Town Hall Tonight: Health Care Repeal with Congressman Steve King

The following is taken word for word from a post at  I have reposted it here to inform you both of a great website and a very important meeting.


TPP Tele Town Hall Tonight: Health Care Repeal with Congressman Steve King
(Deadline: 1pm EST)

Good Morning Patriots,

Wednesday will be a historic day in the United States House of Representatives. The Health Care Bill (ObamaCare) will finally come to a repeal vote and while we are expecting it to pass, this is only the first step in the process. Many people in the media and some in the Washington are saying that this is simply a symbolic vote or that it is a mistake for the Republicans to focus on this as their first priority in the 112th Congress; but do you feel like all of the hard work you have committed to the Tea Party movement and to rejecting the government takeover of health care was a mistake? Is the Tea Party movement nothing but a symbolic force in American politics today?

NO! Time and time again over the last two years, we the people have rejected the irresponsible legislation that has been rammed down our throats and there is no time to stop.

Tonight, Tuesday, January 18, 2011 at 8pm EST, Tea Party Patriots will be hosting a Tele Town Hall Meeting to discuss the importance of the Health Care Repeal Vote, the things that citizens can do to ensure its passage, and how we can put pressure on the Senate to bring the bill to the floor for a vote. So far, Congressman Steve King from Iowa, the author of the Repeal legislation has confirmed that he will be on the call and we are awaiting confirmation from one other member of Congress.

They accuse us of only having the ability to protest but we continuously come together to discuss better solutions. They say we are never willing to compromise but maybe the politicians could learn a thing or two from us about not wavering when it comes to principles. So let us stand once again, shoulder to shoulder, let your voices be heard.

Action Items:

1. Sign up for the Tele Town Hall Here (Deadline 1pm EST)

2. Tomorrow, call your Congressmen and ask them how they plan to vote. Tell them how you’d like them to vote and thank them if they are voting the way you want them to. Click here to contact your Congressman.

3. Call your Senators and urge them to bring the bill to a vote in the Senate. Click here to call your Senators.

4. For more ways to participate in creating real policy solutions for our nation, register for the Tea Party Patriots American Policy Summit in Phoenix, AZ on Feb. 25-27th.

5. Donate to help fund the Tele Town Hall. We plan on holding many more of these in the months to come!

Obama’s $100 Million Budget Cut

There is virtually nothing better to help understand perspective.  Take a minute and watch this video to see the “real” impact of President Obama’s plan to cut $100 million from the Federal Budget.  This is amazing!

An URGENT Appeal

January 10, 2011

To the elected Senators and Representative of the Great State of Indiana:

From the people…

We the undersigned are requesting that our elected public servants of 2011 pass legislation that will only promote Indiana and its citizens on a pathway to independence in governing itself as directed by the original intent of the Constitution as written by the founding fathers.  The undersigned hold to the same truths mentioned below and originally written and submitted by Teetor Henley on January 13, 1947, as House Concurrent Resolution No. 2.

Be it Resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring, Indiana needs no guardian and intends to have none.  We Hoosiers-like the people of our sister states-were fooled for quite a spell with the magicians’ trick that a dollar taxed out of our pockets and sent to Washington, will be bigger when it comes back to us.  We have taken a good look at said dollar.  We find that it lost weight in its journey to Washington and back.  The political brokerage of the bureaucrats has been deducted.  We have decided that there is no such thing as “federal” aid.  We know that there is no wealth to tax that is not already within the boundaries of the 50 states.

So we proposed henceforward to tax ourselves and take care of ourselves.  We are fed up with subsidies, doles and paternalism.  We are no one’s stepchild.  We have grown up.  We serve notice that we will resist Washington, D.C., adopting us.

Be it Resolved by the House of Representatives of the General Assembly of the State of Indiana, the Senate concurring:  That we respectfully petition and urge Indiana’s Congressmen/Congresswomen and Senators to vote to fetch our county courthouse and city halls back from Pennsylvania Avenue.  We want government to come home.

Resolved, further, that we call upon the legislatures of our sister states and on good citizens everywhere who believe in the basic principles of Lincoln and Jefferson to join with us, and we with them to restore the American Republic and our 50 states to the foundations built by our fathers.



What is required of you?

Copy and paste this petition to all of your contacts, friends, family, co-workers and members of your various groups.  Also, include the following message with the petition: 

Dear fellow American:

If you are in agreement with the attached petition demanding our legislature to pass legislation that will move our great state toward independence from Washington DC rule, please send an email with your name, address, phone number, state representative district number and name to Lisa Deaton at by January 8, 2011.  For the state house to look at this seriously, we will need 50-100 signatures for each state representative seat.  (Lisa will add the name and information from each email to the petition and use the email forwarded by you to show your agreement and support to the attached petition and will include each email when forwarding to the sponsoring state senator.)  Please forward to all of your contacts.  We have very little time to move this forward during the 2011 session.  Time is of the essences. 

Thank you,

Lisa Deaton
