Take Down the Tea Party  Ten!

Friend -

Mitt Romney just bet the farm, and he put his chips on the Tea Party.

When it comes to winning the White House, Mitt's pick of Paul Ryan — the architect of the Tea Party budget — was a huge gamble.

But one thing's for sure: It's great news for the Tea Party extremists fighting to keep control of Congress.

In a year when Democrats and progressives just aren't as fired up as they were four years ago, the choice of Paul Ryan is bound to energize the Republicans' Tea Party base. And that means grassroots organizing against Tea Party extremists in Congress just got even more important.

We're organizing against the worst of the worst, in the most competitive districts. And it just got harder. Can you chip in $5 to support our grassroots campaign now?

Paul Ryan was the guy who brought destroying Medicare into the heart of the Republicans' priorities. Does that hurt Mitt Romney overall in Florida? Probably. But will it bring more Tea Partiers out to re-elect Tea Party mad hatter Allen West in his district? You betcha.

Romney is almost certain to lose in California. But will more Sacramento Tea Partiers now go to the polls to cast their vote for Ryan's radical attack on environmental and public health protections — and give a boost to Dan Lungren in the process? Almost certainly.

And while it's hard to imagine anyone casting a vote in favor of slashing women's health services and access to birth control, with Ryan on the ticket, more people will do exactly that in Chip Cravaack's district in Minnesota.

The choice of Paul Ryan shows just how far to the right Tea Party extremists have succeeded in pulling the entire Republican Party.

What remains to be seen is if Democrats who might not be thinking of going out to the polls this time, and Independents who haven't paid much attention to the Tea Party record, will vote to hold these extremists accountable in November. We have to make sure voters in these districts know the stakes. Because with Ryan as the candidate for VP, it's even more important that they do.

Chip in $5 to help hold Tea Party extremists accountable.

Thanks for standing with us,
