Heritage: Are Permanent Wall Street Bailouts Next?


I wanted to take a moment to briefly share a few items that may be of interest to you:

1. Last week, The Heritage Foundation honored the Tea Party movement for its civic engagement at our 34th annual Resource Bank meeting.

Billie Tucker, a Tea Party organizer from Jacksonville, Florida, told her inspiring story to the conference, sharing how she really “got involved” for the first time in her life.

Watch the video of her story here.


2. Right now, the United States Senate is considering a financial regulations bill that would create a PERMANENT BAILOUT AUTHORITY for Wall Street.

Click here for a video that explains the bill in simple terms.
