It is no surprise that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell would take it upon himself to unilaterally vow that there would be no future government shut downs.  He's forgotten about his vow to uphold the Constitution. When he starts negotiating the power of Congress - the power of the purse - it makes it much easier for President Obama to win. Republicans were elected to the majority in the Senate to be a roadblock to the Obama agenda. Everyday Americans across this country increasingly wonder what the difference is between Mitch McConnell controlling the Senate and Harry Reid controlling the Senate. That's a problem. It is absurd to see ...

Tea Partiers Rally Nationwide to Demand the End of Congress’ Obamacare Exemption

Atlanta, Ga. – Tomorrow at Noon, Tea Party Patriots across the country will converge upon their Senators' and Representatives' local offices to demand that they abide by the laws they force on the American people. Under Section 1312 (D) of the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare), Members of Congress and their staff can no longer obtain health insurance through the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program (FEHBP).
