Tea Party Patriots co-founder speaks at IVCC

Posted by wlpo on May 24, 2011

Fiscal responsibility, free markets and a constitutionally limited government are the core values of the Tea Party Patriots.  A woman credited with founding the group brought their ideas to Illinois Valley Community College Tuesday night.

Jenny Beth Martin, a former computer programmer and Republican Party volunteer turned Tea Party Patriots CEO, was there to talk about the state of play in Congress.

Martin says she’s frustrated about Congress not being able to make budget cuts and is disappointed in Republican leadership.

She says Tea Party Patriots don’t give candidate endorsements and wouldn’t say who she would like to see run in the next presidential primary.

She says they don’t take a stand on social issues.  She says social issues are regional and should be handled regionally are by the state.
