December 02, 2011 J

[img_assist|nid=25691|title=Randolph Co. Tea Party|desc=|link=none|align=left|width=225|height=300]

Thank you to the Randolph County Tea Party for allowing us to speak to their group last evening! We discussed AFP's ongoing effort to highlight out-of-control government spending as part of our cut spending now campaign. We also briefly discussed the upcoming legislative session and the issue of Right to Work.

The Randolph County Tea Party is an impressive grassroots organization. This is a group actively engaged in their community. They have organized issue education campaigns, phone banks and get-out-the-vote efforts to just name a few.

Over the coming weeks and months, Americans for Prosperity-Indiana will be working with groups such as the Randolph County Tea Party to educate the public and improve our local and state governments.

Stop the NLRB’s “Ambush” on American Jobs

November 30, 2011 J

Despite overwhelming public opposition, including from over 12,000 AFP activists who wrote to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) using this website, the NLRB plans to move ahead anyways with its “ambush” union elections rule.

Congress can stop this job-killing rule change in its tracks by passing the Workforce Democracy and Fairness Act, H.R. 3094.

Take action here.

“Occupy DC” Tries to Intimidate AFP, We Didn’t Let Them

November 10, 2011 J

Last weekend I joined your fellow Hoosiers at the Americans for Prosperity Foundation’s 5th Annual Defending the American Dream Summit. This was a peaceful assembly of nearly 2,500 grassroots activists from across the country. Our summit is meant to energize and educate our activists on how to be more effective in their communities as grassroots leaders.

Although there were rumors of a looming protest, the summit was coming along fine until Friday evening’s dinner tribute to Ronald Reagan. During the dinner, nearly 500 “Occupy DC” protestors showed up outside. They surrounded the convention center and began to walk around the building, looking for an unguarded door. The police moved with them to keep anyone from entering who did not have a credential.

AFPF Statement on Attack by “Occupy” Movement

AFPF Statement on Attack by “Occupy” Movement

Americans for Prosperity Foundation (AFPF) issued the following statement today:

“While we support the right to free speech and to peaceably assemble, it is saddening and unacceptable that the “occupy” group launched an attack on our own peaceable assembly and expression of free speech,” said AFPF Executive Vice President Tracy Henke.

Henke continued, “There is a deep divide in our fundamental vision for America. We at AFPF advocate for individual freedom and responsibility, ideas that enrich and empower society as a whole.”

Rather than inciting class warfare, our leaders need to focus on creating an environment that will enable American businesses to create jobs and economic growth--and they need to condemn these increasingly violent protests.

In hundreds of AFPF events, there has never been an arrest or reported act of violence by our members.

Americans for Prosperity Launches Huge Media Campaign

November 02, 2011 J

Americans for Prosperity has just launched a $2.4 million media campaign in Florida, Michigan, New Mexico and Virginia. The campaign is focusing on the $535 million in taxpayer money given to Solyndra, the now bankrupt solar panel company with ties to the administration.

For more information about Solyndra and AFP's effort to educate citizens about this serious abuse of taxpayer dollars, go here.

Also, be sure to read the news breaking CNN story detailing the campaign.

If you agree with us that taxpayer dollars need to be protected, sign our petition!
