The T.E.A.(Taxed Enough Already) party movement is a nationwide, grassroots citizen empowerment initiative to vigorously oppose reckless and irresponsible fiscal policies and programs of our Federal government. Parties were held across America on 9/12 including a major rally at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C.
Future T.E.A. party events will be announced in the coming months. All concerned citizens are urged to attend regardless of political persuasion. These events are non-partisan and open to anyone concerned about the direction of our country.
