The TEA Party's unifying factor, Obama, is out of office. They were the counter to the rise and election of a progressive POTUS. The tables have turned and now the left, unified under the #resistance  label have a unifying factor, Trump.

Anyone remember the power the Evangelicals once held over the GOP? Seems forever ago now. Looks to me like the party has chosen greed over God.

The Tea Party had a hidden agenda.  It was never just about taxes and each wing of the Tea Party set its own priorities and goals. Some tea party group[s were against congressional efforts  to save jobs in their communities and investments in the nation’s infrastructure, raising the Federal Minimum Wage and unions. 

They claimed they were for paying for all new spending.  Where is the outrage now?  THE WALL IS NEW SPENDING THAT IS NOT BEING PAID FOR.  So...what is the difference now and in 2010?  It does not take a rocket scientist to figure that out.

Since the Tea Party was a grass roots movement, "groups" such as you mention did spring up and none of these groups had the authority to speak for this movement, since it was not Astro Turf and had no official Leadership.  Those who came together primarily opposed taxes and limitless spending without addressing our growing National Debt.  Obamacare was and is primarily a tax Bill; this is what allowed it to be passed under "Budget Reconciliation" requiring only 51 votes, rather than 60. This massive tax and spend Law was opposed along with all the other Boondoggle Spending Programs coming out of our larger and larger, out of control Federal Government.  As Quantitative Easing allowed the FED tto print mone and more money, buying Tresuraary Bills at the rate of over $1Trillion per year additional debt, the Tea Party was outraged at this off the books spending!

The theme was "stop spending our children and grrandchildren's future" Plain & Simple!

Of course it wasn't.   It wasn't for myself.

It was about illegal immigration at the time for me(most important issue at the time).

Just like the Women's March on DC isn't all about their Pussy. Grin It's about a lot of the left's agenda Wink

Let's cut to the chase instead of repeating it every day. They meaning both Trump and any elected future president is never going to do anything to curtail legal immigration.

Perhaps one will deal with curtailing illegal immigration.

So I suggest going to plan B if there is one instead of beating a dead horse.

AND DON'T YOU THINK THAT the GOP health care bill is a tax bill?  Giving $45 billion to help states confronting the opioid epidemic pay for treatment and recovery is a tax bill.  Don't you think transferring tax dollars from Medicaid to private insurances is a tax bill?  You problem is that you listen to too much right wing propaganda and turn you back on the facts.  The Tea Party was only about defying Barrack Obama.  The republicans can do the exact same thing like creating new spending for things like the wall and increasing military spending without any complaints from the now defunct tea party.

So you joined a movement that opposed Obama just because you were against illigal immigration?    Hmmm...........

Illegal immigration has been in existence since we were establish as the United States of America.  Italians and other Europeans were being shipped over here at the bottom of ships.  Non English speaking immigrants whether legal or illegal have always been a part of this country.  Why does it bother people so much now?
