TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: Obama administration plans appeal (Quote by Jenny Beth) “…But it remains to be seen if the decision will provide a way out of a Homeland Security budget impasse that comes to a head on Feb. 27. While the court order remains under review, hard liners on illegal immigration have been pressuring congressional Republicans to permanently pull the funding from an executive order they see as illegal amnesty. Many see Hanen's order not as an exit ramp, but as a vise grip to exact concessions from Democrats. "We're hopeful this will be a wake-up call to Senate Democrats," said Tea Party Patriots co-founder Jenny Beth Martin. GOP ...

With healthcare premiums expected to climb once again, businesses are carefully searching for options to provide insurance to employees without dipping into the red.

Obamacare Taking Truck Stop Tips

“It really is tough,” confessed Deborah. Between skyrocketing premiums and the sagging economy, the truck-stop waitress from Indiana has seen better days when it comes to her financial situation.   “I'm not making as many tips,” she said. “Today at work, I made $20 for a seven-hour shift.

However, when you add soaring healthcare costs due to the Affordable Care Act, it only compounds the hardship.   “I have insurance through my company, but my rates have increased. In two years, it’s gone up $200 a ...

That tactic, which has successfully at drained America’s finances and enabled trillions of dollars of debt, is suddenly falling flat as Obamacare’s disastrous rollout continues to be a. Jon Stewart highlighted this failure on Monday night as he hammered President Obama for pretending one person’s ability to get insurance through the ...
