GOP ‘Skinny’ Obamacare repeal fails to keep long-standing promise of full repeal

After seven GOP Senators betrayed their constituents and voted against ‘clean’ repeal of Obamacare this week, reports indicate the GOP leadership is considering what they are calling  ‘skinny’ repeal of Obamacare. A ‘skinny’ repeal would strip some mandates requiring people to have health insurance while keeping many other provisions of Obamacare provisions intact. The Washington Examiner has the story: That combination of factors will likely make it even harder for Republicans to settle on a "skinny" repeal bill. Under that plan, Republicans would eliminate Obamacare's insurance mandates and would repeal the medical device tax. ...

Sanctuary cities place more importance on ‘relationships with illegal immigrant communities” than the safety of citizens

On Tuesday, the Justice Department issued a new warning to sanctuary cities telling them to cooperate fully with federal immigration agents in order to receive federal law enforcement grant money.

Louisiana Senators and Staff Scarce When Activists Seek to Remind them of their Promises

On Thursday, Tea Party Patriots activists in the great state of Louisiana set out to deliver signatures from Louisiana Patriots asking Senators Cassidy and Kennedy to keep their promises and vote to repeal ObamaCare. You would think it would be relatively easy for a constituent to remind their Senator of a promise, but they are busy people. Even if they aren’t available to meet their constituents, you’d think at least a member of the Senator’s staff would meet constituents, given they all serve the people. But as has been the case in other states recently, it’s not as easy as you might expect! When our activists showed up, petitions in ...

According to the Congressional Budget Office, the federal government alone will run a $693 billion deficit this year because Americans and the federal government lack self-control from borrowing outrageous amounts of money that Americans once paid for the old fashioned way. The Washington Examiner has the details:   According to the Congressional Budget Office, the federal government will run a $693 billion deficit this year, an upward revision from $534 billion in March. Acting as if we have a gold-plated government credit card, we Americans buy more government services than we pay for. As my 2nd grade teacher might have put it, this ...

The first Republican president, Abraham Lincoln, immortalized the concept of a government “of the people, by the people, for the people” in the Gettysburg Address. In North Carolina, Republican Senators Thom Tillis and Richard Burr might want to brush off one of the greatest speeches ever delivered by an American president to remind themselves of their responsibilities to the people who elected them.
