Tea Party Patriots believe that the GOP deal made with President Obama
makes the GOP’s Election 2010 Pledge “a joke”.

Below is an email from earlier today as to what Tea Party Patriots
believe about the Obama/GOP Tax Deal and the actions that they ask
people take.

Each time Congress is in session and up against a vacation deadline,
they throw so many bills and changes at us that it becomes a bit
overwhelming. We realize we are sending a lot of emails right now.
Please bear with TPP as this is one of the primary means to
communicate with you. We are doing our best to get the information to
you in a timely manner so that you can choose how to move your passion
for our core values into tangible actions. Once Congress adjourns, the
emails from us will slow down to a normal pace.

“The Deal” or “The Tax Deal” as it is becoming known around the
country between President Obama and Congressional Leadership is
problematic. This is a deal that needs to be opposed.

A couple of months ago, the Republicans signed “The Pledge” which were
several legislative and principled commitments they made to Americans.
The Deal violates several commitments from The Pledge.

Here are the reasons why this tax bill must be opposed as outlined by
HughHewitt in TownHall.com:

“The deal” was forged in secret, without consultation with the
scores of new representatives and senators who campaigned on a much
different agenda much less with their supporters and contributors who
worked for two years and gave vast sums of money so that a new start
could be made, one built on transparency and principle.

“The deal” like Obamacare, isn’t reduced to writing even now,
when Senator Reid says a vote could be held on Saturday. Like
Obamacare, we are being told we will have to pass the bill to find out
what is in it.

“The deal” revives the death tax, an immoral “vampire tax” that
sucks the blood from the dead, ruins family businesses and double
taxes savings that were accumulated over a lifetime. It took ten years
of gradual step downs to eliminate the tax, and now “the deal” revives
it at 35% with a $5 million dollar exemption, a rate that looks and
feels permanent and which will immediately impact tens of thousands of
families in 2011 and when inflation works its way into the system,
thousands more over time. The GOP has spent years making the case
against the death tax on moral and economic grounds, and in the course
of a weekend of secret meetings, it gave that issue away.

“The deal” spends billions and billions of dollars that the
country does not have in order to prevent a tax hike that the country
voted against. In essence the GOP bribed the president to follow the
will of the people. There is at least $75 billion in new spending in
the plan, agreed to by the GOP less than 5 weeks after the country
fairly screamed “Stop Spending Our Children’s Money!”

On September 23, all of the House GOP leadership agreed to the “Pledge
to America .” A photo op was arranged at the Tart Lumber store in
Sterling, Virginia, and the senior leaders of the would-be majority,
with their shirt sleeves rolled up, took the pledge and asked America
for the majority back. There are at least five provisions of the
Pledge that are breached by “the deal.” In September the House GOP
promised to:

“Permanently Stop All Job-Killing Tax Hikes” (p. 16)

“Act immediately to Reduce Spending” (p. 21)

“Cut Government Spending to Pre-Stimulus, Pre-Bailout Levels” (p. 21)

“Read the Bill” (p. 33)

“Advance Legislative Issues One at a Time” (p. 33)

“The deal’s” assault on “The Pledge” will make the latter a joke, and
instantly impacts the credibility of all future efforts to propose
agendas to the electorate.

The idea that this massive tax and spend bill has not yet even been
written but may be voted on by the Senate this weekend is appalling,
and has rightfully drawn the anger of the TeaPartyPatriots.org and
other Tea Party activists, an anger that will not diminish.

  1. What secret deal? Do they mean the Tax Deal that was virtually negotiated on TV? They need to put down their cups of Chinese tea and watch MSNBC and see what’s going on around them//
