This looks like very good news.. and as the budget deal passed the House 332-94.. the oil-funded tea party seems to be losing influence..
Tea Party Patriots said Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has “declared war on the Tea Party” with his “smug and pretentious rant” against certain right-wing organizations.
The group made the charge in a fundraising email to supporters, seeking to win donations over the public feuding.
In the past two days, Boehner has repeatedly attacked the conservative groups that championed the October effort to defund ObamaCare and are now opposed to the recent budget deal negotiated by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.).
He has criticized the groups for being more interested in raising money than actually solving problems.
The letter quotes Boehner’s statement that “outside groups” were “using our members and … the American people for their own goals.”
