Harry Reid's Shutdown: Day 7


Here we are on Day 7 of Harry Reid's shutdown and there's still no sign of compromise coming from the Senate or the White House.

The media, the ruling elite, the Senate, and the President are doing all they can to blame this mess on us, but all we wanted was them to think twice about forcing a law that isn't ready on the American people. All we wanted was the American people to be treated equally under the law as the ones who forced this on us. And now all they can say is that we are anarchists, arsonists, holding the economy hostage, holding a gun to the heads of the American people.

It's time for this nonsense to stop. The President a few years ago called for a new age of civility. These statements made by the President, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi fall far from that cry for civility and they should be ashamed of themselves.

A year ago you were fed a narrative that the Tea Party was inconsequential. Today, we are so powerful that according to the President and the Democrats in Washington, we have shutdown the federal government. Which one is it?

The truth is, the power of the Tea Party comes from everyday voices like you. This is the epitome of how our system of government was supposed to work. The vast majority of power was to be held by the people. Today, you have proven time and time again your willingness to exercise that power. Every phone call you make to an elected official, every email you send, every Tweet or Facebook post that involves you expressing your concerns with our government, that is what gives the Tea Party power. It is because of YOU!

Today, we need to exert some more of that power. The Democrats seem content on letting the government remain closed all because they are unwilling to compromise on Obamacare, a law that the American people have never wanted. 

Call, Tweet, and post messages on the Facebook of these Democrats below and tell them to stop playing games. It's time for them to listen to the American people and defund Obamacare.
