This Week’s Volunteer Meeting Agenda (Thursday 4/25/13)
Here at the Georgia Tea Party, we organize the issues we prioritize highest as components of a three-legged stool. The first leg is tax and regulatory policy, and the second leg is monetary policy. The third leg of our metaphorical stool is spending or fiscal policy, which is what we will be focusing on at this week’s Georgia Tea Party Volunteer Meeting. For some time now, GTP has been in support of The Penny Plan, also known as the One Cent Solution, which is a plan calling for Federal spending to be capped, and after an evaluation of all Federal programs, to be cut by 1% every year. This is “One Cent” cut from every dollar of spending. After 6 years, the Penny Plan states that the Federal budget will then be balanced.
At this week’s GTP Volunteer Meeting, we welcome back the Chairman and CEO of Citizens for Restoring America’s Financial Future, the group behind the One Cent Solution, Mr. Bruce Cook. Bruce is a good friend of the Georgia Tea Party, and we’re excited to hear about the Penny Plan’s progress since last we met with him. Just this year, The One Percent Spending Reduction Act of 2013 was introduced in both the House and the Senate, and currently enjoys several co-sponsors on both sides.
Please see below for an announcement related to the next GTP Federal Task Force meeting, some information pertaining to an Obamacare townhall meeting at Kennesaw State, as well as an alert concerning the fight against Common Core in Georgia. We’ll see you this Thursday night, 7 – 9 PM, 900 Roswell ST in Marietta!

|Many Georgians are concerned with the implementation of Common Core, which are a set of K-12 school standards being implemented in most states in English, language arts, and math. This Thursday night, April 25, the Cobb County School Board will be holding a meeting in which they may order textbooks and other related materials associated with Common Core and approve teacher training to be held this summer. Opponents of Common Core in Georgia are calling for volunteers to attend the meeting and speak out against these measures. They recommend arriving to the meeting by 6:15 or 6:30, and being prepared to sign up to speak for approximately 2 minutes. The meeting will be held at the Cobb County School District offices at 514 Glover ST, Marietta, GA. Please see their website by clicking on the image above for more information.|

“The One Cent Solution/Penny Plan still offers the best solution to our nation’s debt problem. It’s simple, straightforward, and provides a strong foundation for growing our economy. What family or business can’t cut 1% off its budget?”~ Bruce Cook, Press Release, March 14, 2013
