WASHINGTON, August 8, 2013 — Since 2009, the Tea Party movement has been at the forefront of conservative politics. The tea parties have held rallies, conventions, protests and almost every imaginable type of event to try to influence Washington.
Most of Washington does not want to listen to the Tea Party. Most of the Republican establishment gives the movement lip service, but no more.
Congress is now in its August recess. It will not return until September 9. When it returns, it will be faced with the two most important issues of our lifetime.
The first is Obamacare. Either Obamacare is defunded by the end of September, or it will never be defunded.
The second is amnesty for undocumented aliens.
The Republicans are already working overtime to sell conservatives out on amnesty.
