5 Times Obamacare was terrible for America

It’s no surprise that President Obama set a red tape record this week, reaching 545,857 total pages of regulations since his administration began in 2009. What can you expect when a president’s landmark legislation saddled American businesses and families with a costly, complicated healthcare mandate? Whether it’s shutting down schools or closing your favorite local restaurant, Obamacare has been bad for America since it was signed into law more than five years ago. Here are five examples from this year showing how badly we need to repeal Obamacare. The healthcare mandate was too much for a Nashville, Tenn.-based deli that closed its ...

Here are five conservatives championing fairer, simpler tax codes in their backyards and on the federal level. 1. South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley "We cannot rest on our laurels when it comes to our tax rates. You've long heard me say that South Carolina needs to reduce our tax burden every single year.

Obamacare forcing longstanding neighborhood deli in Nashville to close its doors

A Nashville, Tenn.-based deli is closing its doors after nearly 20 years in business in part because of the looming expense of the employer mandate under Obamacare, which requires employers with a staff of 50 or more to provide health-insurance to all full-time employees. The Daily Signal has the scoop:  “Having more than 50 full-time employees means you have to comply with the Affordable Care Act, and it was an unknown risk of how much it was going to cost,” he told The Daily Signal. “But it was going to be significant, and take a lot of time and labor to take care of the transition and the reporting and the forms.” Loventhal ...

The total U.S. national debt to date is a whopping $18,807,234,015,463.93, roughly $58,000 per citizen(!), according to Ed Hall who used information from the Treasury Department to calculate the number. While the push to repeal Obamacare in the Senate reconciliation bill moves to the House and then to President Obama's desk, it's the perfect time to remember why conservatives need to continue to push for an end to out-of-control spending in Washington: because — in the words of U.S. Senator Mike Lee — letting future generations foot the bill is "taxation without representation." Here are leaders past and present who remind us why we need ...

Obamacare: The ‘straw that broke the camel’s back’ for struggling Tennessee school district closing its doors

The Washington Examiner has the details: In an AP report, Clay County Director of Schools Jerry Strong said the school board made its decision to cancel classes because of budget issues that are related to government mandates that the district can't afford. He said the Affordable Care Act was the "straw that broke the camel's back" and that "it has made it very difficult for us to have our employees properly covered and meet ...

Ex-Im Bank Still Expired…For Now

Despite attempts by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and some Republican Senators to resurrect the Export-Import Bank after its authorization lapsed, the Ex-Im Bank will stay shuttered…for now. Over the past week while debating the highway bill, Sen. McConnell denied votes on amendments popular with conservatives and Republicans, including full repeal of Obamacare and a vote to end Congress’s special exemption from Obamacare, while allowing a vote on an amendment to reauthorize the Ex-Im Bank.
