EXCLUSIVE -- Tea Party Patriots Founder Jenny Beth Martin on Budget: This Is Why We Have Primaries

by Robert Wilde 13 Dec 2013, 11:49 AM PDT

In an exclusive statement to Breitbart News, Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of the Tea Party Patriots, affirmed the Tea Party's adamant opposition to the Ryan-Murray budget deal that passed the House Thursday night.

House speaker John Boehner has criticized conservatives and Tea Party activists for opposing the budget compromise, referring to them as “outside groups” that are getting in the way of congressional progress.

“Tea Party Patriots oppose this budget deal and are calling on Members of the Senate to vote against it,” she said. “However, there is little doubt of the outcome. Senators who are facing a primary challenge (McConnell, Graham, Alexander and Cornyn) will vote against the budget because they know their constituents oppose it."

"However, because there is a 60 vote threshold, their votes will be irrelevant and they know they are safe to vote against it so they can tell their voters they did the right thing," Martin explained.

“This deal really exposes the true colors of several in the GOP establishment and their Washington political games," she stated. "It seems that during the ‘Defund Obamacare’ or ‘Exempt America’ battles, Speaker John Boehner and the House GOP played ‘good cop’ by standing with conservatives, while the establishment in the Senate played ‘bad cop.’ Now that so many established members of the Senate are facing primary opposition it comes as no surprise that they are now supporting the conservative cause, while Boehner and the House trade places,” continued Mrs. Martin.

“The fact that Boehner attacked ‘outside groups’ is a telling sign that neither the House or Senate are interested in listening to the American people but doing whatever it takes to get re-elected. The GOP establishment created this battle by backing away conservative principles,” Martin declared.

Now Jenny Beth and Matt Hoskins and Kibbe and Jim DeMint will have to find a new hornet's nest to hit to keep those cards and letters coming in.

If you want to blame somebody for this, blame Ted Cruz.  His shutdown strategy failed miserably and forced Republican leaders to make damned sure it would not happen again.  This budget is an "avoid a shutdown at all costs."

You can stick your head and every other body part in the sand all you want, but the Republicans were blamed for the shutdown by 75% of the country, and Cruz and Lee in  particular were blamed.  They suffered a huge loss in approval due to the shutdown.

They've now recovered, and Cruz has learned his lesson.  No more shutdowns.

A TRUE conservative would not purposely and/or willingly advance a lie.

When perception is a lie it is still a lie... some people actually fight lies with truth others just spread the lie because it meets their own agenda... which is what the media does and those who help the media are complicit in the destruction of this nation.
