The Buck Stops… Anywhere but 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue

With the rollout of Obamacare a complete disaster, one might expect the Obama Administration to apologize to the public for lying about who can keep their coverage. Or perhaps for the premium increases millions of Americans are seeing. Or for spending hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars on a failed website. Nope: Speaking to reporters Tuesday White House Press Secretary Jay Carney blamed loss of healthcare coverage for millions of Americans on insurance companies complying with the Affordable Care Act. "Insurers pulled those plans away from them," Carney said. "The law [Obamacare] could not order insurers not to cancel that plan." Millions ...

Wednesday on the Senate floor introduced an amendment that would discipline local officials that don’t collaborate with federal immigration officials when it comes to sharing information about illegal immigrants – an enforcement breakdown that for good reason has many Americans bemoaning our failed immigration system. The Morning Call has the details: The amendment that Toomey introduced Wednesday would strip federal community development money from cities or counties that do not detain prisoners suspected of being in the country illegally or that decline to share information with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforce...

Jenny Beth Martin: ‘Americans are opposed to shifting the [Supreme Court] balance in a more liberal direction’

As a small contingent of Senate liberals continue to spar with Senate conservatives over whether to hold hearings for President Obama’s left-wing Supreme Court nominee Judge Merrick Garland, Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin in her latest column reminds us Americans don’t want someone like Judge Merrick Garland on the Supreme Court and instead want to see more conservative values reflected on the bench.

Tea Party Patriots Opposes Omnibus Spending Bill

Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots President and co-founder Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today in opposition to the latest spending bill that was released last night: “Tea Party Patriots opposes the latest spending bill to come out of Washington, which will add to our national debt without any plan to balance our budget.
