Senator Mike Lee Delivers the Tea Party’s Vision for America

Sacramento, CA – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest tea party political action committee, partnered with Senator Mike Lee tonight to deliver the Tea Party response to President Obama’s State of the Union Address.

Tea Party Express Chairman Amy Kremer said, “Tonight, Americans had the opportunity to see a different vision for America’s future. Senate Mike Lee painted a picture of an America that empowers the people, not ignores them. Lee’s response stood in stark contrast to President Obama’s address, which pushed a devious agenda to circumvent the people’s representatives in Congress.

“It seems like this imperial President is more interested in steamrolling Congress via executive orders than actually providing relief to every day Americans,” said Amy Kremer. “Senator Mike Lee put forward a real vision for America and real solutions that will lift Americans up instead of holding them down.”

Tea Party Express Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “Tonight we saw a number of responses to the President’s State of the Union Address; the official Tea Party response delivered by Senator Mike Lee was accompanied by Republican Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodger’s and Senator Rand Paul’s responses. There was a common theme between the three: bringing prosperity back to America.

“The tired, stale ideas of Barack Obama have resulted in big government, high deficits and the weakest recovery from a recession in modern history. Providing for more economic growth and prosperity for all Americans will be a unifying message throughout the 2014 elections. This will drive conservative victories across the nation as we work to take back the Senate and expand the Tea Party’s influence in the House of Representatives,” Russo concluded.
