GOP ‘Skinny’ Obamacare repeal fails to keep long-standing promise of full repeal

After seven GOP Senators betrayed their constituents and voted against ‘clean’ repeal of Obamacare this week, reports indicate the GOP leadership is considering what they are calling  ‘skinny’ repeal of Obamacare. A ‘skinny’ repeal would strip some mandates requiring people to have health insurance while keeping many other provisions of Obamacare provisions intact. The Washington Examiner has the story: That combination of factors will likely make it even harder for Republicans to settle on a "skinny" repeal bill. Under that plan, Republicans would eliminate Obamacare's insurance mandates and would repeal the medical device tax. ...

Louisiana Senators and Staff Scarce When Activists Seek to Remind them of their Promises

On Thursday, Tea Party Patriots activists in the great state of Louisiana set out to deliver signatures from Louisiana Patriots asking Senators Cassidy and Kennedy to keep their promises and vote to repeal ObamaCare. You would think it would be relatively easy for a constituent to remind their Senator of a promise, but they are busy people. Even if they aren’t available to meet their constituents, you’d think at least a member of the Senator’s staff would meet constituents, given they all serve the people. But as has been the case in other states recently, it’s not as easy as you might expect! When our activists showed up, petitions in ...

Lewandowski: President Trump’s tax reform plan will have three big components

Corey Lewandowski, a political commentator and former campaign manager for Trump in 2016, expects Trump’s tax reform plan will have three parts. He expects that the plan will lead to less cash flowing overseas, tax deductions for middle-class families and a more simplified tax code. The Hill has the scoop: "You will see the repatriation of money coming back from overseas, which is going to be a huge boost to the economy. You will see the increase in deductions from middle-class and working families so they have more deductions. And you will see the simplifying of the tax burden, the tax code," he added. Lewandowski pointed to how Trump will ...
