(Washington, D.C.) – Today, a group of Tea Party leaders and activists released the following open letter to Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) and Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY). The letter urges Republicans in Congress to avoid social issues and focus instead on issues of economic freedom and individual liberty:
Dear Senator McConnell and Representative Boehner,
On behalf of limited government conservatives everywhere we write to urge you and your colleagues in Washington to put forward a legislative agenda in the next Congress that reflects the principles of the Tea Party movement.
Poll after poll confirms that the Tea Party’s laser focus on issues of economic freedom and limited government resonated with the American people on Election Day. The Tea Party movement galvanized around a desire to return to constitutional government and against excessive spending, taxation and government intrusion into the lives of the American people.
