FRESNO, Calif. /California Newswire/ — The Central Valley Tea Party, in conjunction with Merced Tea Party, North Valley Patriots, Mariposa Tea Party, Bakersfield Tea Party, Tehachapi Tea Party and Central Coast Freedom Rallies, has issued commendations to Calif. Congressmen Tom McClintock and Jeff Denham and censures to Congressmen Jim Costa, Kevin McCarthy, Devin Nunes and David Valadao based on their votes on H.R. 2775, the 2014 Continuing Appropriations Act.
The CVTP takes out-of-control federal spending and the continued accumulation of debt very seriously. In June of 2011, the CVTP organized large rallies and a petition drive to deliver the message to congress that "No More Debt" is acceptable. Earlier this month, October 2013, the CVTP again organized a petition drive to deliver the message that any additional funding for Obamacare is unacceptable.
These commendations and censures represent the CVTP's follow-through to hold elected representatives accountable, regardless of their party affiliation.
