Washington, D.C. – Contrary to the common narrative regarding the Tea Party movement as being against everything, conservative Members of Congress are offering up dozens of new ideas to solve America’s economic woes. Tea Party Express released a new book titled, “Tea Party Solutions for America: Congressional Plans for Fiscal Responsibility and Economic Growth,” which highlights some of these ideas.
The book is being released digitally at TeaPartySolutionsForAmerica.com – a domain hosted by the new social publishing platform, Medium.com. The 33 different articles will be released over a three-week period as part of a special digital publication, however, journalist may download the book in its entirity by clicking here. Senator Rounds’s piece my be viewed digitally here. The public may also request a hard copy of the book at www.TeaPartyExpress.org.
Tea Party Express Executive Director Taylor Budowich said, “The Tea Party movement has been successful in electing an unprecedented number of conservatives to the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives. Republicans now enjoy more Members of Congress since 1928. Our goal is not just to elect people to office, but to change the policies in Washington. The call from the Tea Party movement has been to reduce the size, cost and intrusiveness of the federal government, rein in the national debt, and end anti-growth tax and regulatory policies that are denying too many people their share of the American Dream.
“The electoral success is not the ultimate goal. The Tea Party Express was created as a political action committee to change the players in Washington as the means to change the policies. Ultimately, the Tea Party’s contribution and success should be measured by the ideas to reform government that are introduced, debated and enacted into law. The first step was Congressional control, and the final step will be winning the White House in 2016. Now, however, is the time to bring forward the new ideas that will transform our government to be more responsive to the American people and provide for less government and more dynamic economic growth.
“Now, after finishing the sweep of Congress, this book unveils the fresh, conservative, idea-based face of the new GOP. While some have tried to define the Tea Party with labels, the truth is that it’s a movement driven by ideas. That’s why some in the media may be surprised at the broad range of contributors we’ve included in this book. Republicans from every corner of the nation, with different backgrounds and constituencies, are all championing Tea Party ideas.
“Since the Tea Party’s inception, activists have capitalized on the democratizing nature of digital platforms to organize events and share ideas. That’s why, along with the physical copy of the book that we will be making available for free, we are utilizing Medium.com, an innovative social publishing platform, to release this book digitally. TeaPartySolutionsForAmerica.com will serve as an online publication, providing the individual authors with the ability to deliver their ideas directly to their constituents.
“This book does not include every idea out there, nor does it try to suggest that there is only one viable solution to a problem. However, with so many in the media falsely characterizing the Tea Party by claiming that the movement should be defined by our opposition to a reckless growth of government, this book presents many thoughtful, Tea Party solutions to problems that face America,” Budowich concluded.
