About This Event

Please join the Center for American Progress Action Fund for remarks by Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY). In his speech, Senator Schumer will discuss the factors that have given rise to the Tea Party in recent years and how the Tea Party’s anti-government philosophy is actually based on false premises. Senator Schumer will urge Americans to consider the true economic roots of the Tea Party movement and pursue an agenda that addresses the economic anxiety that helped fuel the Tea Party. The Senator will prescribe an inclusive agenda for 2014 that addresses those concerns and will help curb the influence and power of the Tea Party in Washington.

Introductory remarks:
Neera Tanden, Counselor to the Center for American Progress Action Fund, President of the Center for American Progress

Senator Charles E. Schumer (D-NY)
