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. ...

President Trump touts success: ‘I have cut illegal immigration on Southern border by 78%’

President Trump promised his supporters that he would continue to crack down on illegal immigration and problems stemming from the abuse of our immigration laws like sanctuary cities, violent gangs and drug traffickers – and he’s getting results. The Daily Caller has the details:   “Since I took office we have cut illegal immigration on our Southern border by record numbers–78 percent,” Trump told the crowd before they started chanting “Build the Wall.” “Just so you understand, we’ve already started fixing much of the good wall that’s already there,” Trump said. “But, we are breaking records.” “We are ...

Seven GOP Senators Break Biggest Promise in Modern Politics

Atlanta, GA - Tea Party Patriots President and co-founder Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today, reacting to Senate Republicans' failure to pass a partial repeal of ObamaCare the Senate passed in 2015. “Today, seven Republican Senators betrayed their constituents and the American people by breaking what is arguably the biggest political promise in modern American politics, and refusing to vote to repeal Obamacare. For the last four election cycles, Republican candidates have promised to repeal Barack Obama's signature legislation and as a result, have increasingly been granted more power in Washington by the American people. ...

Congress moves to fund President Trump’s border wall

Congressional Republicans are planning to provide funding to help President Trump uphold his campaign promise to build a wall on our southern border. Congress will vote on allocating $1.6B for the project while Democrats are promising to shut the government down to stop President Trump’s attempts to secure our borders and enhance our national security. The Washington Examiner has the details: The funding will be included in a group of fiscal 2018 spending bills, combined into one measure, that House lawmakers will vote on before leaving for the August recess.

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 ...

Johnson credits Trump’s rhetoric for decline in illegal immigrants crossing border

Former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said Thursday that the decreasing number of illegal immigrants crossing the southwestern U.S. border is partly due to President Trump’s rhetoric. The Washington Examiner has the story: While working for former President Barack Obama, Johnson and other officials worked for years to reduce illegal immigration after the 2014 border crisis that saw thousands of unaccompanied children try to enter the country. Illegal immigration fell in 2015 after the Obama administration worked closely with Central American countries in an effort to get their help in reducing the flow of people, but it rose again in ...

Lewandowski: President Trump’s tax reform plan will have three big components

Corey Lewandowski, a political commentator and former campaign manager for Trump in 2016, expects Trump’s tax reform plan will have three parts. He expects that the plan will lead to less cash flowing overseas, tax deductions for middle-class families and a more simplified tax code. The Hill has the scoop: "You will see the repatriation of money coming back from overseas, which is going to be a huge boost to the economy. You will see the increase in deductions from middle-class and working families so they have more deductions. And you will see the simplifying of the tax burden, the tax code," he added. Lewandowski pointed to how Trump will ...

House GOP releases $1.1 trillion budget that could reduce the deficit by $15 billion in 2018

The House budget committee unveiled a budget plan for the next fiscal year that would potentially cut $203 billion in mandatory spending and seek to balance the budget in roughly a decade, and the budget panel predicts the deficit could “turn into a $9 billion surplus by 2027”. The Hill has the details: The $1.132 trillion budget includes $621.5 billion for defense, a significant increase over both current levels and those proposed by President Trump. It contains $511 billion for nondefense discretionary spending, a cut from current spending but higher than Trump’s request. It also includes $87 billion in spending for the global war on ...
