SC Congressman Barrett Introduces 'TEA Act' to cut 500 Billion

Barrett Introduces TEA Act

Today, Congressman Gresham Barrett introduced the Taxpayer Empowerment and Advocacy Act – or the TEA Act for short. 

The TEA Act will:

  • Save taxpayers $520 billion over the next five years by reducing government

  • Limit the growth rate of government to inflation

  • Strenghten the definition of emergency spending to prevent abuse and

  • Require PAYGO for all new mandatory spending programs.

I believe the TEA Act will set Congress on a new, more accountable course while protecting the taxpayers’ best interests. I encourage you to let your friends and family know about this common sense bill that will save us more than half a trillion dollars over the next five years.
