OBAMA HEALTHCARE BUS TOUR PALES IN COMPARISON TO "TEA PARTY EXPRESS"
SACRAMENTO – The Tea Party Express (website: www.TeaPartyExpress.org ) leaders have issued a statement in response to news reports that Barack Obama's "Organizing for America" committee was launching a "Health Insurance Reform Now" bus tour to counter the "Tea Party Express."
Below is the statement from Deborah Johns, Vice Chair of the Our Country Deserves Better Committee which is the organizer of the Tea Party Express."
STATEMENT BY DEBORAH JOHNS OF "TEA PARTY EXPRESS":
"It is not surprising that Barack Obama's supporters feel the need to hold a bus tour to counter the "Tea Party Express" - given the outpouring of support the Tea Party Express tour has received before we've even logged one mile of our tour.
"This Friday the Tea Party Express will embark on a nearly 7,000-mile journey across the country holding tea party rallies in 34 cities. This effort marks a ramping up of the tea party movement which has shown a passion of the American people to speak out against the errant ways of their government.
"Barack Obama and his supporters believe that if they simply attempt to replicate the Tea Party Express that they can counter this powerful tea party movement.
"While we will be traveling nearly 7,000 miles across the country and rallying Americans in 34 cities, they will be holding made-for-television rallies in just 11 cities. It's just the latest example of the Obama administration's obsession with style over substance.
"Americans have been hurt by the policies of this administration and Congress. The out-of-control deficit spending, the growth in the size and intrusiveness of government, and nationalizing of whole sectors of the American economy have not made things better in this country. In fact, the policies of Obama-Pelosi-Reid have instead made things worse, and left our children with a debt that will take an untold length of time to repay.
"We look forward to going head-to-head with the Obama bus tour on the highways as we cross America. We welcome the challenge, because we know our ideals of smaller government, lower taxes and greater freedom and liberty for the American people will prevail when confronted by the failed policies being advanced by the Obama-Pelosi-Reid axis of big government liberalism."
