TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: 'Yesterday is Over': Rubio Announces 2016 Campaign “…Rubio's announcement is receiving praise from at least one tea party group. He ran as an outsider in 2010 for U.S. Senate and upset the Florida political world with his surprising win, catching the eye of the tea party as it was gaining traction. "As we mark the Sixth Anniversary of our original Tax Day rallies, it's gratifying to see yet another candidate who shares tea party values enter the 2016 presidential race. We have come a long way, in six years, when three tea party senators are major players in the presidential race," Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of Tea ...

TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: Great Job So Far, Sen. McConnell. Now Cancel The Recess. “Politicians are flirting dangerously with a deadline for funding a critical government service. A recess looms. Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. Republicans ran hard against executive amnesty for illegal aliens last fall, and were rewarded by voters with historic majorities. Rather than negotiate from a position of strength, GOP leadership opted to fund almost the entire government through Sept. 30, 2015 – in a lame duck session. The Department of Homeland Security was funded only through February 27, which brings us to the current impasse. Democrats – ...

 TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: Message to the IRS from the tea party: ‘We will not be silenced’ “Like Rep. Darrell Issa, the tea party does not give up the fight. Mr. Issa, chairman of House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has released his painstaking review of 1.3 million pages of IRS documents and transcribed interviews conducted following revelations that the federal agency had targeted conservative groups. “Conservative organizations were not just singled out because of their political beliefs - they were targeted by IRS officials and employees who expressed a general loathing toward them even while begrudgingly admitting that those ...

HEALTHCARE: He beat that Obamacare deadline. Did you? “New York City resident Nicolas Karlson was happy to be one of at least 2.5 million people who beat a major Obamacare enrollment deadline last week, but he's going to be paying a lot more for health insurance next year because of it. To cover himself, his wife, Monica, and their three children, 45-year-old Karlson will go from paying $1,805 every three months for their long-standing Aetna plan, to a new one from New York State's Obamacare exchange that will cost them $1,221.60 per month, or more than 100 percent more than his old plan cost. That steep bump in price is a result of Aetna's ...

In France, Atlas is shrugging

Via The Telegraph, the predictable consequences of taxing the productively wealthy: Asterix and Obelix have deserted Gaul. Or at least the two actors who played them in three blockbuster movies have. With Gérard “Obelix” Depardieu’s much-trumpeted exile to Belgium last week, following Christian “Asterix” Clavier’s move to London in October, France has lost her best-known fictional heroes, undefeated by Julius Caesar’s legions, but vanquished by François Hollande’s punitive new 75 per cent top marginal income tax rate, recently hiked capital gains tax, and reinforced wealth tax. Oddly, or perhaps not so oddly, the French people are ...
