Obamacare’s many broken promises

Remember all those times the Left told us we needed the Affordable Care Act so it would reduce health care costs in America? Yeah, we do too. True to form, their predictions didn’t exactly pan out. A new study shows [1] that average insurance policy rates skyrocketed, in some cases by as much as 78 percent after Obamacare was implemented. In the sought-after 23 year-old demographic, rates rose the most on average. Men in that age group saw increases of 78.2 percent, while women got a 44.9 percent increase. It’s not exactly surprising. While the Left would rather we all ignore it when rates go up and policies get cancelled, there’s no ...

Tea Party Offers to Fix What Obamacare has Broken

Obamacare Broke It, Americans Are Paying For It, and the Tea Party Has a Plan to Fix It As millions of American families fear losing their health care coverage, or facing radically higher costs, the Tea Party Patriots offers a plan to fix what Obamacare has broken with real health care reform. “The President promised to fix what was ailing America’s health care system,” said Jenny Beth Martin, National Coordinator for the Tea Party Patriots.  “Now, Obamacare is breaking our health care system and breaking the bank accounts of struggling American families.” “Obamacare broke it, Americans are paying for it, and the Tea Party has a ...

Broken Promises, Damaged Families – The Legacy of Obamacare

Across the country, pundits and politicians are talking about the political implications of the unaffordability of Obamacare and its disastrous rollout. Mary Katharine Ham has a round-up some of the crushing broken promises to the American people. They include: Rather than more competition, functional oligarchies are appearing in many rural areas of the country. This is not lowering costs for consumers. Insurance plans are being cancelled by CareFirst, including “more than 40 percent of the 177,000 individuals covered by CareFirst in” Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, D.C. And from Guy Benson at Townhall.com comes this Forbes analysis ...

Another Broken Promise: Keeping your Health Insurance

Over the last four-plus years, President Obama has often repeated that any American who likes his or her insurance plan can keep it. It was a major part of the Obamacare sales pitch to the nation: Many Americans knew this claim was suspect, and that it might not end up being true. Via NBC News, however, we now know the Administration realized this wasn’t the case over three years ago: Buried in Obamacare regulations from July 2010 is an estimate that because of normal turnover in the individual insurance market, “40 to 67 percent” of customers will not be able to keep their policy. And because many policies will have been changed since ...

Broken News: CNN Bias Blatant on Capitol Hill

Erin McPike made a name for herself in 2012 as a political reporter for Real Clear Politics before leaving for CNN. In two press events last week, she made a new name for herself – an agenda-pushing reporter. Breitbart’s Matthew Boyle has the story on the first event: At a Conversations with Conservatives press event on Capitol Hill on Thursday, CNN reporter Erin McPike attempted to blame congressional Republicans for a potential government shutdown, even though the power to do that would rest solely with President Barack Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Boyle’s story is worth reading in full, as he outlined the three very ...

Chicken Little and the Government Shutdown

Since the fight over Obamacare defunding began, the news media and politicians have focused on the political damage the GOP took in 1995. For all the claims of how awful a temporary shutdown would be, it’s interesting that news media has ignored the more than dozen shutdowns that took place in the 70s and 80s, and how life was just fine. In April 2011, it appeared that Congress might shut down the government. NBC’s Brian Williams reported at the time that such a shutdown would be the 18th one since 1976. Here is the full list: Year        Beginning date       Length in Days            Ending date (at midnight) 1976 ...

Tea Party Patriots Weekly Report from Washington for 06/28/15

CALENDAR:  The House and Senate are both in recess for the 4th of July break, and will not return until a week from Monday. LAST TWO WEEKS ON THE HOUSE FLOOR: The House came back into session on Monday, June 15. The Members dealt with seven non-controversial bills under the Suspension Calendar and renamed several U.S. Postal Service buildings. Meanwhile, the real action on Monday was taking place in the Rules Committee, where House GOP Leaders were working to buy themselves some time. As you may recall from our last conversation, the House had passed the TPA bill, but had failed to pass the accompanying TAA bill, and that left the ...

Jenny Beth Martin’s Speech at the Western Conservative Summit

Who here wants elected officials to vote based on principles and convictions, regardless of the consequences?  Regardless of whether they will lose their chairmanships, committee appointments, and other perks of office? Who here is proud of Congressman Ken Buck for standing and voting on principle since he took office in DC in January? I’m proud of Ken Buck and the others who stood on principle and faced consequences in the last 2 weeks like Mark Meadows, Trent Franks, Cynthia Lummis, and Steve Pearce.  Thanks to you for making calls this week, the Republican “Leadership” reinstated Congressman Mark Meadows’ subcommittee chairmanship and ...
