Happy Independence Day, or IS IT ???
Today, July 4th, we celebrate the birth of our nation – or do we???  Most Baby Boomer & older Americans have memories of wonderful Independence Days past.  There would be fireworks, cook outs, family gatherings and a reminder that America was a great, free and independent nation with a free and independent people.
After the events of not only the last few days but the last few years, it is now clear and evident and fair to say we are now celebrating Independence Day in a post-liberty America? Welcome to the new transformed “USSA” – the United Socialists States of America!!!  See our website tab - The New "USSA" -  to know exactly what that means and how it happened.

The sad truth is we are living in a post liberty America.  People in the Tea Party movement will remember the words of the Declaration of Independence. But few of the millennial generation have even read that document; much less remember its words, as for two generations now, we have taught our children revisionist or politically correct history--like the strange idea that our Founding Fathers risked their lives out of greed or self-interest, or that they intended our interpretation of the Constitution to “evolve” over time.  As a result of this failure to teach the truth about our history, we are beginning to see our nation’s memory of the past slip away--especially the values and principles for which our founders actually fought.

Ask yourself: Do we really honor today the courageous patriots who cast off the chains of despotism, abolishing our bond to an unjust government??? And do we truly remember our forefathers who fought and died for the principles of self-governance and self-determination??? Are we continuing their legacy, did we forget what pushed our Founders to take a stand for liberty???

Calls On Louisiana Legislature To Kill The New Tax And Oppose Obamacare’s Medicaid Expansion provided for in House Concurrent Resolution 75

For Immediate Release          May 7, 2015

BATON ROUGE - The Tea Party of Louisiana (TPoL) on behalf of all hardworking tax paying citizens of Louisiana and our 13,733 activist members across Louisiana calls on all legislators to oppose House Concurrent Resolution 75, which provides for the “stealth” Obamacare Medicaid expansion together with a “bed tax.”

HCR 75 is little more than a thinly veiled attempt to coax Louisiana into Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion.  As such, TPoL will consider a vote for HCR 75 a vote in favor of Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion, as well as a vote for higher fees and additional spending at a crucial Louisiana Budgetary shortfall crisis.

Unfortunately, HCR 75 passed out of Committee virtually unopposed and is scheduled for the House floor possibly next Monday. The Committee and “Leadership” has not learned from our previous rejection of HB 532, the “Bed Tax” and Obamacare Medicaid expansion, in the 2013 session; and moreover the failures of this scheme in other states since then.  They continue to push to make this ill-advised policy state law in Louisiana. In Ohio, for example, a similar plan put in place by Governor John Kasich is already projected to be more than $1 billion over-budget in this fiscal year alone – and will more likely become more unsustainable in the future when the Medicaid match rate inevitability fails, and the program’s added costs are shifted to state taxpayers. Louisiana can’t afford such irresponsibility – at the state or federal level !!!

TPoL wants all to clearly understand, this is a scheme to quietly usher Obamacare's Medicaid Expansion into Louisiana. HCR  75 will lay the groundwork for Medicaid Expansion in the coming months without further legislative action. There will be no chance for the Governor to Veto this irresponsible act by the Legislature! It’s totally on them!


A pure ploy to coax Louisiana into Medicaid Expansion - a policy that will further crush our budget in years to come. Bed taxes are a shady, underhanded way of scamming federal taxpayers supposedly at little or no cost to Louisiana taxpayers - except that Louisiana taxpayers are also federal taxpayers.  Essentially, this proposal attempts to profit off of expanding Obamacare, at the expense of federal taxpayers.  Unfortunately, there are those, even in the LA Legislature, who believe that Federal dollars are "Free" dollars.  There are no free dollars, anywhere, as far as you can see. Someone pays and pays dearly.


If this Medicaid expansion succeeds in Louisiana, 45% of the population will be on it.  Add to that the number of those enrolled in Medicare, and you end up with 30% of the citizens of the state paying for everyone else including illegals getting free healthcare at your expense.

Medicaid expansion bills have failed in previous two sessions.  This is an underhanded scam that will cost billions.

The Tea Party of Louisiana (TPoL) strongly opposes HCR 75. TPoL will score a vote in favor of this “bed tax” as a vote in favor of Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion, and hold legislators accountable accordingly.

October 23, 2015                         PRESS RELEASE                  For Immediate Release

Tea Party of Louisiana Endorses Matt Parker

for Louisiana Insurance Commissioner

TPoL cites Out of Control Situation at Dept of Insurance & Unreasonably High Insurance Rates

BATON ROUGE -We at the Tea Party of Louisiana believe that our Department of Insurance has failed to do its job. Consider the following:

  • As a percentage of personal income, Louisiana has the highest insurance rates in the U.S.  We average spending over 18% of our income on insurance; the highest “pain index” in the U.S., 32% more than Texas, 22% more than Mississippi. (source:
  • Our average automobile premiums is 3rd highest in the nation, and have been in the top 3 highest for the last 10 yrs. (Source:
  • High auto insurance rates have been blamed on “uninsured drivers”, but Louisiana’s “Uninsured Motorist” rate is ~ 12%; the national rate is also ~ 12% ( – Insurance Information Institute , Insurance Research Council)
  • Our average homeowner pays ~ $1,800/yr to insure his home, 2nd highest in the country. Our homeowner’s premiums are ~ 68% more than the national average, 33% more than Mississippi, 40% more than Alabama’s, 79% more than Georgia. (Source: © 2015 National Association of Insurance Commissioners, NAIC).
  • Insurance rates in Louisiana have risen twice as fast as the rest of the country. (source: The Advocate)
  • The present Insurance Commissioner approves 96% of all rate increase requests. (Department of Insurance Annual Reports)
  • Robert Hunter, retired Texas Insurance Commissioner and Insurance Director, Consumer Federation of America, has characterized Louisiana’s Department of Insurance as “the worst in the nation”, for regulating the insurance companies.
  • Louisiana received a “D” grade from R Street's “Insurance Regulation Report Card”
  • According to the Department of Insurance, 3600 complaints were received in 2014, but none of them resulted in actions against insurance companies. (NAIC Report on Insurance Department Resources)

When 3600 complaints result in NO actions against any insurance companies, we are forced to conclude that the Louisiana Department of Insurance has become dysfunctional; it’s virtually impossible all of these complaints could have been meritless. We understand that this situation is so bad that the Attorney General’s office has stepped in and is suing a major insurer for “unfair trade practices”, something that the Department of Insurance should have prevented, if it were doing its job.

Because this situation is out of control and because of the terrible financial burden unreasonably high insurance rates place on everyone in Louisiana, the Tea Party of Louisiana calls for a change in the office of Insurance Commissioner, and is proud to endorse Matt Parker for Louisiana Insurance Commissioner in this coming Saturday’s October 24, 2015 election.

La Republicans Set to Raise Taxes More than Democrats Ever Dreamed??? 


For Immediate Release                                                                                                             May 7, 2015

BATON ROUGE - The Tea Party of Louisiana (TPoL) on behalf of all hardworking, taxpaying citizens of Louisiana and our 13,733 activist members across Louisiana calls on all Representatives to vote “NO” on all tax increases.

Led by a new Republican majority, the Louisiana House of Representatives appears to be set to pass a series of massive tax increases on Louisiana businesses and families! The votes are scheduled for Thursday.

In addition, TPoL asks the following three Republican leaders, and ask each of you to ask each of them: Representative Chuck Kleckley, Speaker of the House; Representative Lance Harris, Republican Delegation Leader; and Representative Joel Robideaux, Ways and Means Chairman to stop all of these bills. These are the three GOP leaders in the House who can stop all of these bills from passing if they want. We gather that Chairman Robideaux, who is running for Mayor of Lafayette, has been the informal leader of this movement to raise taxes.

It is unbelievable that a Republican Speaker of the House would be working hard to increase taxes. TPoL and the people of Louisiana have worked very hard over the last few years to give republicans majorities. To think that they would use these majorities to raise taxes is just unthinkable. This is just what we do not need from any Republican let alone the leadership. Do we have the same type of Republican Leadership problem in Louisiana as we have in our US Congress right NOW?

It’s starting to appear that the entire Louisiana House of Representatives seems to be devoid of conservative leadership. We cannot wait for fall elections to find new Representatives in the House if you are going to support increasing ANY taxes.

The people of Louisiana want conservative leadership in the state legislature. We are tired of tax-and-spend liberals and progressive RINOs who don't understand the limited role of government!

Did this legislature already forget the 2013 session when some misguided Republicans and their leadership signed on to and pushed for a 500 Million Dollar Obama style tax increase compromise, and we had your constituents flood your phones and emails, and you heard their anger? Well rest assured they still feel the same way and perhaps even more strongly today.  TPoL will be prepared to expose every legislator who votes for increased taxes in this session instead of just cutting spending and reducing the size of government to balance the budget just like we have to in our household budgets.

The Tea Party of Louisiana feels it is important that each State Representative, and the Legislature as a whole, hear a firm message that we are TAXED ENOUGH ALREADY!!! And expect you to vote “NO” on any tax increases!

PRESS RELEASE – TEA PARTY OF LOUISIANA CALLS FOR the Immediate Approval of the Paycheck Protection Act HB 418 

May 12, 2015                                     For Immediate Release

BATON ROUGE - The Tea Party of Louisiana (TPoL) calls for the immediate approval of HB 418 – the Paycheck Protection Act.

TPoL's call for immediately approving the Paycheck Protection Act (HB 418) is based on three indisputable facts that every Legislator needs to come to terms with:

1) In Louisiana, taxpayers are forced to pay for the accounting of government labor unions. We bear the cost of deducting their union dues from state employee paychecks. 

2) Legislators have an obligation to the tax payers not to let unions force us to help pay for their political agenda!

3) Even worse, the union dues we pay to collect are used for political causes—causes you may not support and the vast majority of Louisiana tax payers do not support.

TPoL and its 13,733 activist members and the citizenry we represent expect our legislators not to let these pro-government union special interests take precedence over the taxpayer. TPoL feels that our tax dollars have no business subsidizing government union politics -- on causes we may or may not like! We want this legislation passed this session and urge you to VOTE for the Paycheck Protection Act (HB 418).

Calls On Louisiana Legislators Not To Drink the Left-coast Cool-aide or Accept the Payoff !!!

For Immediate Release                                                   May 6, 2015

BATON ROUGE - The Tea Party of Louisiana (TPoL) has learned that a lobbyist, making the dubious and questionable claim of being both a "Tea Partier" and a "conservative", named Debbie Dooley is planning to hold a "Conservatives Support Solar" - (Ha! Ha! What a Joke) - event and press conference that's nothing more than an excuse to connect "Big Money Solar Fat Cats" with Louisiana legislators, where they plan to offer "buckets of campaign cash" in an attempt to "buy" support for continuing Louisiana's Solar Tax Credit give away. A program that takes tax money from schools, hospitals, and roads, and gives it to "crony capitalists" in the form of "corporate welfare." Is Louisiana's budget now, miraculously, in such good shape that we can continue such irresponsible waste?

TPoL wants to take this opportunity to remind our elected representatives of two important facts: First, anyone can falsely claim to be something, but "conservative is as conservative does"; judge the actions, not the rhetoric; and two, no legitimate, viable business needs a government subsidy in order to exist.

TPoL reminds our legislators that an election is coming soon and the voters are watching.  TPoL urges our legislators to decline this corrupt invitation and send a message to both the "Fat Cats" and the ordinary citizens.  Tell everyone, by not attending this unseemly "auction", that in Louisiana, the "keys" to the public treasury are not for sale to the highest bidder.

TPoL urges our legislators to do the right thing, end the giveaways, end corporate welfare, and restore sanity to our state budget. Stop robbing average people and breaking the state budget so a few well connected fat cats can keep getting their unreasonable corporate give aways.

The Tea Party of Louisiana wants to make its position on ending refundable corporate tax credits including the solar energy tax credit otherwise known as Crony Capitalism "perfectly clear" – END THEM ALL NOW !!!

In light of Louisiana's current budget situation, let's end the insane give aways that are called "refundable tax credits" and let's start by killing the solar tax credit!
