Skip to comments.'DC Intervention': Tea Party group to pressure Rubio on immigration, Toomey on guns

The Tea Party Patriots organization is planning protests on Tuesday at the home state offices of several Senators that the group argues are in need of an intervention for being sucked up into inside-the-Beltway politics, including Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA).
The group is targeting Rubio on immigration reform and Toomey on gun control.
Two Senators in particular are facing Tea Party pressure, as they should--Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Pat Toomey (R-PA), Tea Party Patriots said in a release. Both of these men were elected thanks to Tea Party support, yet Senator Rubio is the star spokesman for a secretive, small group working on a bill that purports to address illegal immigration and the entire US immigration system as a whole. This bill is already 1,500 pages and no one outside the small working group has read it, meaning legislation that will affect our security, spending, taxes, culture, education, welfare, jobs, etc. is being crafted without input from most of our Senators or the American people. Not only might the legislation be bad policy, it has already gone outside of the normal process.
Meanwhile, Senator Toomey is the man who gave opponents of the 2nd Amendment the best chance theyve had in decades to violate the Constitution, Tea Party Patriots added. Not to mention that its been reported that the real negotiations took place on Sen. Joe Manchins (D-WV) yacht. So instead of negotiating in public, they made their deals on a booze cruise.(continued)

To be fair, they should also include the offices of Rand Paul. His plan to “Normalize” the illegals is also Amnesty.
