Turn off the tap!


"“It’s not that I’m not worried about them. And I would like to be all things to all people, but if you try to do that, you’re nothing to anybody. So I’m more inclined to just vote yes and move this in the right direction,” said Rep. Mike Kelly (R-Pa.), a freshman lawmaker who’s a favorite of Tea Party activists back in his home district."

“As much of a fiscal conservative as I am, you do have to accept the small victory sometimes before you get to the bigger victory,” said freshman Rep. Michael Grimm (R-N.Y.), who has taken some heat from Tea Party activists back in his home district.

“It’s not something I worry about,” Grimm said of the potential for a primary challenge. “My job is to lead and to govern. If I wanted to just sit back and not be a member of Congress and just be a member of a Tea Party, well, then I can espouse whatever I want because there are no consequences.”

“At the end of the day, [the Tea Party] is just gonna have to grade each one of their legislators on their performance,” Palazzo (R.-MS) said. “If you expect us to agree with you 100 percent of the time, you might as well just go ahead and start pulling out primary candidates now and start vetting them.”

What an interesting suggestion... In the meantime, demonstrate YOUR fiscal responsibility by turning off the donation tap to these sellouts.

  1. Seems to be something in the water at Washington DC---most who enter the hall of congress with good intentions fall under the knives of lobbist and special interest groups as soon as they go through the doors of that once great building. Makes you sick doesn't it!!!
