Tea Parties Are Gaining Traction

Your voice is being heard, America! The tea party movement is strong and growing.

Since the first tea party this year on February 27, 2009, thousands of people have gathered for other tea parties around the country.

Now Former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich with American Solutions is on board supporting the upcoming Nation-wide Tax Day Tea Party on April 15, 2009.

Over 300 cities are already planning tea parties, so head over to and see where you can get involved.

  3. Dear Tea Party Republicans,
    Do you really think that the best form of health insurance is one that is beholden to turning profits for their shareholders? How exactly does that benefit you and me (unless you're a shareholder). How exactly does profiting on my illness make the system better? This not the same as providers making money (doctors, nurses, therapists, etc.). Don't you see that there is only one way for the insurance companies to make a profit and that is to deny care and limit payments, or cut you off if you become too expensive. I don't mind people having a difference of opinion from mine, but when it's based on misinformation it is infuriating. Someday it may be you who needs a lot of care, and you will be sorry if your movement results in the denial of services that you need to stay alive. I am a physical therapist and I have seen many of my patients cut off from treatment that would have helped them live more independent lives. It happens to real people and it happens every day. This is not an exercise in politics, it is about real life.

  4. Julie,

    Medicare denies claims twice as often as private insurers. Do you really think that getting rid of insurance companies and replacing them with bureaucrats will lower the cost and improve access to medical treatment?

    It is true that insurance, as a third-party payer raises the costs of treatment, but the solution is to have people be responsible for their own care, not removing it from one bureacracy (which you can at least choose the best company) to another (which you would not be able to choose your "provider").
