A press release from the Boston Tea Party:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Boston Tea Party National Committee passes unanimous resolutions against the “stimulus” & FED
February 16, 2009
The Boston Tea Party national Committee unanimously passed two resolutions on Monday. Both resolutions speak to specific bills, one of which just became law, opposing the “stimulus” and the Federal Reserve. “Both of these resolutions speak to the core values of smaller government and reducing the size scope and power of the government,” stated Darryl W. Perry, BTP At-Large Rep., “We MUST continue fighting the ever expanding federal government!”
The resolution against the “Obama stimulus” states:
“WHEREAS The key to fixing our economic crisis is to get money out of the wasteful hands of the government and back into the pockets of the American people, and
WHEREAS the “stimulus bill” increases government spending, and
WHEREAS the vast majority of the spending in this bill isn’t being directed to taxpayers
BE IT RESOLVED the Boston Tea Party National Committee opposes the $850 Billion, 1588 page “Stimulus” package”.
The other resolution supports abolishing the Federal Reserve states:
“BE IT RESOLVED that the Boston Tea Party National Committee supports HR 833 the “Federal Reserve Board Abolition Act.””
HR 833 is the bill sponsored by Dr. Ron Paul and is the same bill that was known as HR 2755 during the 110th Congress. Party Chair Doug Gaking said, “The bill appears to be a step strictly in the direction of smaller government. Can anyone think of a reason not to support it?”
The Boston Tea Party was founded in 2006 with a platform that “supports reducing the size, scope and power of government at all levels and on all issues, and opposes increasing the size, scope and power of government at any level, for any purpose.” The party conducts business online at www.bostontea.us.
