Senator Lee will share the stage with Rep. Justin Amash, Rep. Mick Mulvaney, Rep. Mike Pompeo, Rep. Tom Price, Reverend C.L Bryant, Deneen Borelli, Dan Bongino, Julie Borowski and Ana Puig. Following the speeches, activists will split up and visit targeted Congressional offices to urge Members to support the bills and The New Fair Deal agenda.Apparently Freedom Works/Tea Party has surrendered the pretense of being separate from the Republican Party. That’s probably for the best, since Matt Kibbe is the president and CEO of Freedom Works, and he is a former staffer for the Republican National Committee (RNC) and Freedom Works runs “boot camps” for supporters of Republican candidates. Back when Freedom Works was “Citizens for a Sound Economy”, they used totrick people into signing up as members by selling them insurance policies that required their membership.
WHEN: Tax Day, Monday April 15th, 2013 from 12:00-3:00pm ET.
WHERE: Upper Senate Park of the US Capitol. The event will be live tweeted at the hashtag #NFD.
WHY: The New Fair Deal Action Day is much more than “just another rally.” Activists will gather at Upper Senate Park to listen to the speaker lineup, and then branch out into groups afterwards to head up to the hill and urge Members of Congress to support the NFD legislative agenda. It’s ideas put into action.
The New Fair Deal is the next phase of the Freedom Movement. What began as a series of protest rallies has evolved into a “Get out the Vote” machine, and now moves forward as a grassroots-fueled effort to work with 11 Congressmen to write legislation and put real solutions on the table. It’s the proactive, uniting and principled agenda that the RNC’s Growth and Opportunity Project has been looking for.
Freedom Work’s goal with the new legislation is allegedly getting “the debt under control and ending big government’s collusion with big business”. This is an irony, since Freedom Works embodies government’s collusion with big business, having been established by David H. Koch (of Koch Industries) himself in 1984. After much poking around on their site, I found an explanation of just which big businesses they oppose, and it’s not big oil, one of the largest beneficiaries of subsidies, but rather green energy and high-speed rail. They are, of course, pushing Keystone XL.
1. The first, introduced by Rep. Mick Mulvaney (SC-5) is the New Fair Deal: Consolidating and Eliminating Outdated Subsidies (CEO’s) Act. This bill would eliminate many direct federal subsidies, such as the infamous sugar subsidy and high-speed rail.
2. The second bill is the New Fair Deal: Busting America’s Rigid, Outdated, and Needless Subsidies (BARONS) Act”, introduced by Rep. Mike Pompeo (KS-4). This bill would eliminate many federal credits and subsidies which favor selected companies and industries through the tax code. The bill primarily targets energy companies which recieve taxpayer dollars to develop special fuels and green energy.
