Rebooting the Tea Party
Posted April 8, 2013
By Lee Cary
“The surest way to destroy a nation is to debauch its currency.”Vladimir Ilyich Lenin
I recently suggested that the Tea Party should engage the same-sex marriage debate. That idea met with opposition. The basis of it was that the Tea Party’s mission is not to address social issues but to, as one commenter stated, advocate “1) reduction in the size of government, 2) reduction and simplification of taxes (if not all-out tax code change like FairTax or the Flat Tax) and 3) reduction in spending by government.”
Point made. Now, moving on…
The Tea Party movement, according to one Texas Tea Party activist speaking last August, morphed after the 2010 election as, “We put down our protest signs, and picked up campaign signs.” Those campaign signs meant to influence the election of local-level candidates who share Tea Party principles.
So, the energy of the movement shifted away from the federal government’s fiscal crisis to a local effort to advance Tea Party principles at the state and local level.
Unfortunately, the federal budget falls largely outside the purview of local- and state-level government officials. A Texas State Representative, while advancing the cause of sound fiscal policies at the state level, does not typically have the ear of Barack Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, or John Boehner. Plus, a State Representative has no vote in the U.S. Congress.
So what has become of the Tea Party’s attempt to influence spending at the federal level? Has it been abandoned? If not, where and how is it being pursued today?

Obama Pushes to Give Home Loans to Lower Credit Borrowers
Editor's Note: Here we go again.
The Obama Administration is angling to allow people with questionable credit to receive home loans, encouraging lenders to use more subjective judgment, and pushing banks to utilize programs through the Federal Housing Administration (FHA)--an executive branch agency that sticks taxpayers with the bill if borrowers default on their FHA home loan.
FHA Commissioner Carol Galante says people with lower credit scores should be allowed to borrow. “My view is that there are lots of creditworthy borrowers that are below 720 and 700—all the way down the credit-score spectrum. It’s important you look at the totality of that borrower’s ability to pay,” said Galante.
But former Fannie Mae executive and American Enterprise Institute fellow Ed Pinto says such a move would be a mistake. “If that were to come to pass, that would open the floodgates to highly excessive risk and would send us right back on the same path we were just trying to recover from,” said Pinto.”
