Americans can’t stop abusing their “gold-plated government credit card”; U.S. yearly deficit projected at $693 billion

According to the Congressional Budget Office, the federal government alone will run a $693 billion deficit this year because Americans and the federal government lack self-control from borrowing outrageous amounts of money that Americans once paid for the old fashioned way. The Washington Examiner has the details:   According to the Congressional Budget Office, the federal government will run a $693 billion deficit this year, an upward revision from $534 billion in March. Acting as if we have a gold-plated government credit card, we Americans buy more government services than we pay for. As my 2nd grade teacher might have put it, this ...

American Made Coalition members would be ‘disappointed if Washington squanders once-in-a-generation opportunity by abandoning real reform’

A group of large U.S. companies urged the Senate Finance Committee to push comprehensive tax reform this year instead of enacting a temporary rate cut or other half-measures that fail to fix the broken pieces in our tax reform. The Washington Times has the details: At the same time, a group of large U.S. companies ranging from Boeing to Johnson & Johnson urged the Senate Finance Committee Monday to take up comprehensive tax reform this year. “Our coalition members would be disappointed if Washington squanders this once-in-a-generation opportunity by abandoning real reform to instead enact a temporary rate cut or some other half-measure ...

Physician Hospitals of America says 30,000 job left uncreated because of Obamacare

Obamacare has continued to wreak havoc on doctor-owned hospitals resulting in overworked doctors, long wait times for patients and squashed planned expansion projects for doctor-owned hospitals. These consequences have drastically impacted our economy with “a loss of $200 million in tax revenue and 30,000 jobs that went uncreated,” according to one trade group. The Washington Examiner has the details: "In many cases, patients have to wait forever," said Dr. R. Blake Curd, an orthopedic surgeon and the hospital's CEO. "We don't have the physical capacity to take care of them." Because of Obamacare, 37 physician-owned hospitals were not ...

Jenny Beth’s Journal: American “comedians” stooping to ‘new depths of incivility’

The political rhetoric that permeates American late-night “comedy” has reached a new low, as liberal pundits attack their political opponents using the same – and worse! – vulgarities those same liberal pundits use as ammunition to condemn their opponents. Basically, if you’re a liberal attacking conservatives, anything goes in today’s society; that needs to change, Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin says in her latest opinion piece. The Washington Times has the commentary: Concurrent with the decline of creativity among elite artists has been the dramatic decline of civility – and in its place, crassness and crudeness ...

Sen. Mike Lee: Trump ‘very consistent in saying that Obamacare is bad for the American people’

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) says President Donald J. Trump is faithful in expressing his displeasure with Obamacare and in his efforts to see the disastrous health-insurance law is repealed, as the government isn't meant to regulate Americans’ healthcare decisions. PoliZette has the inside scoop: Urging his colleagues to “do what we actually said we would do,” the Utah senator praised President Donald Trump for being “very consistent in saying that Obamacare is bad for the American people” and pushing for repeal and replace. “They deserve better. We’ve got to get rid of it. We have to actually do that now,” Lee said, adding that the ...

Jenny Beth’s Journal: Kathy Griffin, America isn’t laughing

Comedian Kathy Griffin this week showed us something more likely seen on an ISIS propaganda video than in late-night stand-up: her holding a prop made to look like a bloodied, decapitated President Donald Trump – a “celebration of the most inhuman violence,” says Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin in her latest column. The Washington Times has the commentary: On Tuesday, as the pictures made their way around the Internet, and as everyday Americans began tweeting their horror, Griffin defended her actions, tweeting: “OBVIOUSLY, I do not condone ANY violence by my fans or others to anyone, ever! I’m merely mocking the Mocker ...

Hannity Matters to America – tell that to Media Matters

The liberal media is losing its mind over President Donald J. Trump’s upset victory over their darling candidate Hillary Clinton – even though Secretary Clinton failed our men in Benghazi, was criminally negligent in handling classified emails and, among other things, failed to disclose sizable Clinton Foundation donations even after promising President Obama she would. The president’s agenda is at odds with their own and THEY. JUST. CAN’T. DEAL. So, they’re pulling out every trick in the book – Media Matters for America specifically – even going so far as to put conservative Fox News host Sean Hannity in their cross hairs by publis...

President Trump’s Budget Puts American Taxpayers First

Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots President and co-founder Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today, reacting to the White House releasing the President’s 2018 budget. “Tea Party activists and grassroots conservatives appreciate that President Donald Trump and his administration are taking to heart their promise to ‘Drain the Swamp’ by constructing a budget based on the needs and expectations of the American taxpayer and not the impulses of bureaucrats and special interests in Washington, DC. It is not a perfect budget – if passed, it would balance in 10 years rather than five years, as advocated by Tea Party Patriots – ...

Jenny Beth’s Journal: America deserves to know why former President Obama’s IRS officials targeted tea-party groups

The former IRS officials at the center of the scandal that targeted Americans for their political beliefs are arguing, ahead of a Friday hearing in a federal class-action lawsuit brought against the agency, that their testimony be sealed out of fear their lives could be threatened if the testimony is made public – something the women should have considered before deciding to unfairly target Americans, Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin says in a recent column. The Hill has the commentary: Let me say this clearly — threats like that are not acceptable. Law enforcement authorities should do all they can to keep Lerner and Paz safe, ...

Jenny Beth’s Journal: Overall, Americans pleased with Trump’s first 100 days

Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin says President Donald Trump’s first 100 days – while not perfect – are a step in the right direction, especially when it comes to immigration and regulatory reform. The Washington Times has the commentary: On the immigration front, Mr. Trump has already made good on his campaign promise to get tough on illegal immigration, and his policies have had the direct effect of driving down illegal border crossings to a 17-year low. On the economic front, Mr. Trump has already removed more job-killing regulations than any president in U.S. history — with an estimated net annual savings of $18 ...
