Senate Dems would rather uphold amnesty than fund DHS – CALL NOW!

On Tuesday, Senate Democrats blocked legislation [1] that would have funded the Department of Homeland Security, but reversed President Obama’s executive action on immigration. That’s right: even though DHS funding is set to run out at the end of February, Democrats in the hallowed halls of the Senate think it’s a better idea to preserve amnesty, then fund a government agency. We need to make our voice heard loud and clear. Last November, voters rejected the Obama agenda, including amnesty. Now, it’s time to call BOTH your senators and remind them what last year’s election was all about. Call at 202-224-3121 and tell them to vote to ...

HEALTHCARE: Americans Are Spending 42 Percent More on Health Insurance Than They Did in 2007 “Data on consumer spending show that spending on health insurance surged 42 percent from 2007 to 2013, according to analysis by the Wall Street Journal. The rise reflects the increasing cost of health insurance and the Affordable Care Act’s requirement that everyone buy extensive health insurance. Another feature shown by the data is the movement away from home-ownership and associated costs. Families are more likely to rent than in 2007, so mortgage spending is down and rent spending is up. Some of the other categories where spending fell – ...

President Obama Disrespects Marines…Again

President Obama made headlines and stirred up lots of controversy yesterday when disembarking from Marine One, the helicopter that he often uses for official travel. Yesterday, Obama was photographed saluting the two Marines standing guard with a coffee cup[1] in his saluting hand. The incident was recorded on the official White House Instagram feed[2]. This is a major breach of protocol and a sign of disrespect to the Marines whose duty it is to protect his life. It is also not the first time President Obama has broken with protocol while riding Marine One. Back in 2013, President Obama walked past a saluting Marine to board Marine One without ...

HEALTHCARE: Vitter: Obama Admin ‘Bending Over Backwards To Give Obamacare To Illegal Immigrants’ “The Obama administration is “bending over backwards to give Obamacare to illegal immigrants,” Louisiana Republican Sen.

Vitter wrote to Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services administrator Marilyn Tavenner on Monday with a hard line of questioning about the agency’s months-late effort to verify Obamacare sign-ups’ citizenship and immigration status. “The Obama Administration is bending over backwards to give Obamacare to illegal immigrants — but won’t protect hard working American citizens ...

Millennials: Clear Obamacare Train Wreck from our Tracks

What a difference four years can make. The enthusiasm among the youth that carried the President to victory is now waning as millennials learn what “hope and change” really means. While some attribute this fading fervor to their lack of loyalty to organized institutions like political parties, it seems the President’s policies, particularly Obamacare, aren’t helping foster the once close ties. Many students, who have relied on part-time university jobs to pay for college, are now seeing their hours dramatically cut due the healthcare law’s new “full-time” definition. Ashley – a student at a university in Texas – is one of them. ...

Is Congress right to ignore the military on tank purchases?

From Huffington Post by the Associated Press: Lawmakers from both parties have devoted nearly half a billion dollars in taxpayer money over the past two years to build improved versions of the 70-ton Abrams. But senior Army officials have said repeatedly, "No thanks." It's the inverse of the federal budget world these days, in which automatic spending cuts are leaving sought-after pet programs struggling or unpaid altogether. Republicans and Democrats for years have fought so bitterly that lawmaking in Washington ground to a near-halt. Yet in the case of the Abrams tank, there's a bipartisan push to spend an extra $436 million on a weapon the ...
