Tea party activists are pushing back hard against Speaker John Boehner for attacking conservative groups that are opposed to bipartisan budget legislation approved this week by the House, claiming he has "declared war on the Tea Party" with his blunt criticism.
In a fundraising email to supporters, Tea Party Patriots referred to the Ohio Republican as a "ruling class politician" who only pretends to be a conservative while remaining a "tax-and-spend liberal," The Hill reported Friday.
The group, which supported efforts to defund the Affordable Care Act, accused Boehner of passing a "back-room budget deal which increases discretionary spending, does nothing to reform entitlements, and fully funds ObamaCare."
The organization called the deal "an out and out betrayal of the American people."
All three top Republican leaders were among 169 members of the rank and file in voting for the measure, which cleared the House on Tuesday on an overwhelming bipartisan vote of 332-94.
Boehner is a 1800s French royalty. He and his blue blood cronies are just like the demorats. They think they should rule and be rich and everyone else should be serfs and poor with no rights.
All the older group(non-tea party) think they are above the real AMERICAN'S in this great country. If we don't clean house we are in real trouble, if we are not already.
We need to vote in more "young guns"
John Boehner is an enemy of the Constitution, Bill of Rights and Free Market Capitalism. He is an enemy of the American People and America itself, not because I say so, but because of his dispicible actions as Speaker of the House. There can be no other conclusion!
Peter, this will not be easy but we must let them know that the Tea Party is not just a few Americans in love with our country and the constitution. Many millions think like us and do not express themselves until the election. Do what you can.
BULLSEYE DAVID!!!!! SEMPER FI
