Tea party leaders are serious about their elected leaders slashing federal spending and borrowing and are vowing to go after House Speaker John Boehner and others who don’t stand up to Democrats in the fight over the national purse strings. They’re ratcheting up the pressure on House Republicans, who have the power to stop more borrowing, the conservative WorldNetDaily news site reported Thursday.
"The House GOP should not even think about un-hiding Obama's Mastercard until after enactment" of serious spending restrictions and other reforms, said William Temple
, chairman of the Tea Party Founding Fathers' Freedom Jamboree.
Temple, who is also organizing the National Straw Poll Convention scheduled for Sept. 28 to Oct. 2 in Kansas City, said something needs to be done and soon. He encouraged other tea partiers to pressure their elected leaders to follow-through.
Take aim at these pro-debt RINOs, which stands for Republican in Name Only, now with phone calls or picketing, he said.
“Boehner leads some rare white RINOs determined to stampede their House GOP caucus and our country over the financial cliff – and ignore signals from voters and the S&P bond ratings agency that we must act now to stop drowning our children and grandchildren in red ink. Yet, Rep. Paul Ryan's so-called 'courageous budget plan' adds $9 trillion to the federal debt."
Temple said the tea party members will not be forgiving this fall if House freshmen and others elected to address fiscal disasters "cave" to President Obama, Sen. Harry Reid and others.
