Obama Supporters Becoming Collateral Damage to Affordable Care Act

Policy cancellations, enrollment frustration, cut in work hours, loss of wages – the fury continues to mount against Obamacare as more people become collateral damage in the Administration’s healthcare ‘train wreck.’ That anger is causing disenchanted Obama supporters to make more than a policy change. Jocelyn, a New Hampshire resident whose hours were cut at Home Depot due to Obamacare, candidly shared her thoughts. “In 2008, I voted for the President, believing he would help America. I thought he would be the future of hope and change. It turns out that did not happen. It was just a lie. Once he passed healthcare in 2010, I could not ...

Tea Party Patriots Weekly Legislative Update for 12/14/14

LAME DUCK CALENDAR:   The House is done for the year, for the session, and as far as we can tell, the Congress.   The Senate will come back in tomorrow, and will likely stay through only Tuesday afternoon, because Tuesday evening is the start of Hanukkah, and they’ll want to go home for good then.
