TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: The GOP quandary: How far right without falling over the edge? “…Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who is at or near the top of most early polls among Republicans, likes to boast how he stuck to conservative principles to win statewide office three times in a centrist state. “To win the center, you don’t have to go to the center, you have to lead,” he said last week during a Tea Party Patriots telephone town hall. Tea party loyalists are still somewhat wary of Walker, though, because of past positions on immigration and government support for ethanol, a big issue in Iowa, site of the nation’s first caucus…” ht...

TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: Now’s the time to remember that old bumper sticker: ‘Don’t tell Obama what comes after a trillion’ (Quote by Jenny Beth Martin) ““The White House knows this budget is dead on arrival.

A new low for Obamacare

Just as Obamacare’s second enrollment period[1] is getting off the ground, more Americans are voicing disapproval of the law. Support for President Obama’s signature legislative achievement, in fact, has reached a new low. A recent Gallup[2] poll shows only 37 percent of Americans approve of the law. On the flip side, 56 percent of Americans disapprove of the law. It’s hardly surprising that so many Americans are currently dissatisfied with the Affordable Care Act. For many, the law has only contributed additional hardship, stress, and complexity to their lives. Others are finally realizing that the benefits are far outweighed by the ...

Obamacare Leaves Cancer Patients out in the Cold

“Today, I’m signing this reform bill into law on behalf of my mother, who argued with insurance companies even as she battled cancer in her final days.” President Obama, March 2010. Protecting the sickest of the sick – that is what the new healthcare law was intended to do. Yet, cancer patients and survivors have seen their much-needed policies, doctors and treatment options vanish under Obamacare. The law has created more vulnerabilities than safeguards within the healthcare system. Robert – a cancer survivor from Virginia – knows this all too well. “I was diagnosed with early-stage prostate cancer in January of 2011. I had a ...
