TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: The GOP quandary: How far right without falling over the edge? “…Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who is at or near the top of most early polls among Republicans, likes to boast how he stuck to conservative principles to win statewide office three times in a centrist state. “To win the center, you don’t have to go to the center, you have to lead,” he said last week during a Tea Party Patriots telephone town hall. Tea party loyalists are still somewhat wary of Walker, though, because of past positions on immigration and government support for ethanol, a big issue in Iowa, site of the nation’s first caucus. In 2006, he ...

TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: Tea Party first to cheer Cruz bid (quote by Jenny Beth) “He's a leader of the Tea Party in Washington, so it's not a surprise that Tea Party leaders are heaping praise on Sen. Ted Cruz's presidential announcement today. Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of Tea Party Patriots, was the first to embrace Cruz, noting his firm stands on conservative principles. "It's fitting that Sen. Ted Cruz is the first announced candidate in the GOP presidential field," Martin said in a statement.

HEALTHCARE: GAO: Feds Spent $3.7 Billion On Obamacare But Aren’t Sure Where It Went “The Obama administration hasn’t kept track of the $3.7 billion it spent last year on Obamacare and other federal health programs’ implementation, according to a federal audit. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the agency charged with implementing the health-care law, spent a boatload of money on building and advertising Obamacare exchanges, but it doesn’t have data to show what money it spent on what efforts — or what parts of it were effective. “CMS’s processes are inconsistent with certain federal accounting and internal control ...

Obamacare Unmasked: “We know what’s best for you”

The revelation that President Obama’s Administration knew over three years ago many Americans would not be able to keep their plans has sent many Democrats scrambling for excuses. Several media reports have surfaced with one theme, “We know what’s better for you, but didn’t want to say it.” In no particular order: A Democratic guest on Megan Kelly’s Fox show: Kelly asked, “Was he intentionally misleading, or was there some argument that he was grossly mistaken?” Hannah argued Obama was “absolutely correct,” explaining that “these plans don’t offer the basic protections that the president has been saying all along are ...

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 ...

Obamacare Incompetence Swaying Supporters

According to polls and media pundits – as well as many politicians – the Republican Party and the Tea Party are shouldering the blame for opposing Obamacare’s funding in the “shutdown” and the debt ceiling debates. However, political talking points don’t change reality, and what supporters of Obamacare called fear-mongering is turning out to be more preview of coming attractions than pretend posturing. According to a number of health care experts in the media, health care lobbyists, and others, the Act has just one month to live if things don’t start working as advertised. First, it was Bloomberg economics blogger and columnist ...

Sebelius Cheerleads Obamacare’s Failures in USA Today

One week ago, the federally-run website www.healthcare.gov launched as the online home of the Obamacare state exchanges. The results were less than auspicious, so much so that the Secretary of the Treasury either didn’t know or didn’t want to say how few people actually signed up of the millions who tried to. The government also shut down part of the website only days after it launched to fix glitches, and a tiny percentage of those who have tried to sign up have actually signed up for coverage starting January 1, 2014. All of this is being ignored by HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, who this morning wrote a series of excuses for the Administ...
