I’ve been under the weather since Saturday so this will be a rather short post. Somewhat Reasonable, a blog of the Heartland Institute, ran a story that caught my eye. Here are some excerpts:
National leaders of the Tea Party plan to hold a rally and press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, DC on Monday to challenge House Speaker John Boehner and other Republican Party leaders to block an increase in the national debt ceiling. The Tea Party leaders fear many Republicans will vote with Democrats to raise the debt ceiling to allow more borrowing and spending.
We don’t want to see the government continue this wasteful spending. The Tea Party is going to hold every RINO accountable. This issue alone is going to determine if they have somebody running against them in their next primary
We don’t care what a person calls himself. There’s hardly a dime’s bit of difference between Democrats and Republicans. The establishment types are all over government. This is not about changing seats. This is about taking back the government. A lot of them don’t get it yet
Even Republican Congressman Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, who recently introduced a long-range plan to slow government’s growth, will be in the sights of next week’s RINO hunters.
This is what I’ve hoped would happen for some time. And it is happening today. Please read the rest of the article. I’m going back to bed and will check back later in the day. If you find any news on this press conference, I’d appreciate it if you could drop a note in the comments section and let me know what happened.
