Obamacare forcing longstanding neighborhood deli in Nashville to close its doors

A Nashville, Tenn.-based deli is closing its doors after nearly 20 years in business in part because of the looming expense of the employer mandate under Obamacare, which requires employers with a staff of 50 or more to provide health-insurance to all full-time employees. The Daily Signal has the scoop:  “Having more than 50 full-time employees means you have to comply with the Affordable Care Act, and it was an unknown risk of how much it was going to cost,” he told The Daily Signal. “But it was going to be significant, and take a lot of time and labor to take care of the transition and the reporting and the forms.” Loventhal ...

Statement of Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of Tea Party Patriots, on Marco Rubio’s announced candidacy

"Sen. Rubio’s personal story inspires, as does his commitment to personal freedom, economic freedom and a debt-free future.

He knows first-hand that prosperity comes not from a government program, but from free markets and the hard work done by the millions of individuals ...

Statement of Jenny Beth Martin on Paul’s Announced Candidacy

It’s exciting to see another energetic, visionary conservative enter the contest for the 2016 nomination. Sen. Paul has been in the forefront of the liberty movement, and he will do a lot to shape the debate as the GOP field expands. Rand Paul knows that the paths to prosperity and individual liberty are one and the same; to get there we need a transformational reduction of the role of government in Americans’ lives.

Standing up to Government Attacks on the First Amendment

On Tuesday, Tea Party Patriots, along with other First Amendment supporters, were out in full force on the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court. We were there – in the cold, wet snow –because that is how important we believe our First Amendment rights are. When constitutional rights are under attack by our own government, you better believe Tea Party Patriots will be there to advocate for liberty. We were joined by Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, Rep. Louis Gohmert from Texas, Live Action’s Lila Rose, Concerned Women of America’s Penny Nancy, and others. Once again, we proved we are a force to be reckoned with. While we view the government’s ...

The doctor's visits have gone up and the prescriptions have also,” explained the Kentucky resident.
