Jenny Beth Martin in The DC: Our best chance to repeal Obamacare

Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin has new op-ed up at The Daily Caller about the best way to repeal Obamacare now – before it can do any more damage. As Martin notes, it’s been five long years since Obamacare became law and then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi quipped that “We have to pass [Obamacare] to find out what’s in it.” Well, we’re finding out – and the country wants none of it. Writes Martin: Millions of Americans have lost their insurance because of Obamacare, and tens of millions have seen their premiums rise – perverse consequences of a bill the Democrats promised would provide universal, affordable health care ...

CDC’s Blind Eye to the Border Crisis

Take a quick glance at recent headlines, and you’ll realize the latest YouTube sensation isn’t the only thing that’s going viral among children today.

DC’s Contagion

There’s an epidemic in Washington. One so pervasive it’s not only infecting an entire group of people, but also wreaking havoc on our Republic. It is the political-class mentality, which is running amuck in our nation’s capital, creating a Petri dish of cronyism, corruption and elitism. This culture, far from what the Founders envisioned, is allowing politicians to amass more power and money for their political gain, while abdicating their responsibilities of representing constituents. Maybe this is why Congress has reached a historically new low approval rating of 6% and why citizens like Ted, coordinator for the Walla Walla TEA Party ...

Ezra Klein Lambasts Symptoms of DC Gridlock, Ignores Disease

In the Beltway, one either toes the status quo line or is responsible for all of Congress’ woes. The current target for this blame is, of course, the Tea Party. According to Ezra Klein, fiscal conservatives in the House are forcing House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) into making unreasonable promises to them about Obamacare and other areas of public policy. Klein claims the Speaker is forced into these series of lies because House conservatives are extreme. One example of this, says Klein, is how the Speaker has promised to use the debt ceiling to negotiate an Obamacare delay instead of the 2014 budget: Trading a government shutdown for a debt-c...
