TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: GOP Praises Court Halting Amnesty: 'Impatient Presidents Don't Get to Change the Law'  “…Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of the Tea Party Patriots, declared, "on to the Supreme Court." "The U.S. Constitution vests the Congress with authority over immigration and naturalization. And as U.S. District Judge Hanen pointed out, President Obama simply treated Congress — and Article 2 — as if they didn’t exist.  "We are a Constitutional Republic, not a banana republic," Martin added. "Our Constitution, with its three co-equal branches, is the roadmap for the governing process. "As much as this would-be imperial president ...

  HEALTHCARE: The dire ObamaCare threat to New York’s hospitals “City Comptroller Scott Stringer laid out the grim facts last week on how the most progressive law in decades means disaster for New York City. The bottom line of Stringer’s report: Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, aka ObamaCare, Uncle Sam will cut more than $800 million in payments to the city’s Health and Hospitals Corp, by Fiscal Year 2019. The president’s signature law slashes federal payments that long helped out hospitals serving lots of patients who lack insurance. The idea was that the law would boost coverage so dramatically the aid would be unnecessary. ...

The Championship: Obamacare Madness vs. Healthcare Freedom

Tonight in Dallas, two basketball teams will duke it out as they vie for the championship. As sports enthusiasts gather to see who wins, there is another battle taking place off the court. It’s the current healthcare debate between our newly government-mandated system and a free-market approach. Policy intentions have muddied the argument with catchphrases like compassion, choice and affordability. They all sound good, but government-controlled healthcare has nothing in common with those buzzwords. America has seen it’s easy to promise affordable care where you can keep your doctor and your plan, but that doesn’t mean it will actually happen. ...

Olive Garden Cutting Insurance for 1,000 Employees

When Obamacare was first created, fiscal conservatives predicted higher costs and dumping of employees by businesses. The parent company of Olive Garden, Darden’s, is seeing the former and engaging in the latter: Starting in 2015, Obamacare will require large companies to offer insurance to employees working an average of at least 30 hours a week. Darden said that has always been the threshold for its insurance plan, but it had allowed about 1,000 workers who fell under to stay covered. Now that state health-insurance exchanges are available under Obamacare, Darden said those workers have other options. Darden said many might end up paying less ...

Democrats Decry “Extreme Constitutionalists”

In Washington, spending less next year than originally expected is considered quite conservative, even if that spending is still a growth in the budget. Thus, the emotional reaction by many in the Beltway is to say the Tea Party – which wants not only real reductions in government spending, but a balanced budget in the near future – is “extreme.” This was on display Sunday, when Congressman Joaquin Castro (D-TX) and Democratic strategist Donna Brazile talked about how extreme the Tea Party allegedly is. First, it was Rep. Castro who said the GOP has been “taken over” by the “more extreme base,” and thus Senators Cruz and Paul are ...

Help Wanted: Pro Athletes to sell Obamacare

In 2010, the [Un]Affordable Care Act was passed into law. Since then, it has largely been unpopular with the American people. In 2010, it was key to the largest turnover in the House of Representatives in half a century, and in 2012 it garnered a great deal of opposition from those concerned with the fiscal and cultural futures of America. With less than 100 days until the Act’s exchanges begin to kick into gear, implementation is way behind schedule. So what is the Administration doing? Rather than admit failure, it wants to bring the NBA and NFL in to help market the law to younger Americans: The Obama administration has reached out to the NBA ...
