Tea Party Patriots: GOP “repeal” bill falls far short of repealing Obamacare as promised

Tea Party Patriots and our supporters remain overwhelmingly opposed to the Obamacare repeal attempt the House Republican leadership is currently advancing. Even with the GOP Leadership's amendments, the American Health Care Act falls far short of fully repealing Obamacare. Our goal is to amend this bill so that we can support it. But gaining our support would require meaningful changes, including removing the tax credits (which, incidentally, look a lot like the Obamacare subsidies) and repealing the insurance company mandates. We are also in favor of rejecting the Senate Parliamentarian's advice, if necessary, to move forward with a bill that ...

Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots President and co-founder Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today, reacting to the Trump Administration’s first budget blueprint. “The budget released by the Trump Administration today is a good start. It makes substantial cuts to ineffective programs and eliminates entire agencies that are unnecessary or wasteful uses of taxpayer funds. This is the boldest budget put out by a White House in recent memory and they deserve credit for making difficult choices.
