Reinvigorated by the amnesty push and the many scandals involving federal abuse of power, the Tea Party is coming to the District of Corruption tomorrow:
On Wednesday, at two rallies bracketing the Capitol, Tea Party and conservative activists will again take center-stage on two issues dominating the national political dialogue. Reps. Steve King, Louie Gohmert and other members of the Tea Party Caucus will host a nearly day-long dialogue and discussion on immigration reform. On the other side of the Capitol, Tea Party grass roots organizations will hold a rally to “Audit the IRS,” in response to the agency’s efforts to intimidate conservative organizations.
The immigration event hosted by Rep. King begins at 9am on the East side of the Capitol. The morning event will run until Noon and feature several members of Congress and national conservative leaders. Glenn Beck, who was an early supporter of the Tea Party movement will speak at the event.
At Noon, on the West side of the Capitol, Tea Party Patriots are hosting a rally to “Audit the IRS.” Sens. Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and many member of Congress are scheduled to speak. Glenn Beck and other conservative leaders will also speak.
The event, attended by activists from around the country will draw new attention to the IRS scandal, where the agency targeted groups and individuals based on their political activity. The IRS scandal is simply the most egregious example of an Obama Administration singling out conservative organizations and individuals for differential treatment. The EPA, Labor Department and other federal agencies have exhibited similar behavior.
Now that everything it warned against is coming to pass, the Tea Party is needed more than ever. Obviously we cannot trust politicians to act in America’s interest. Public pressure must be applied aggressively to prevent the situation from deteriorating any further.
