Romney’s Comments Spark Critical Debate

Yesterday, liberal magazine Mother Jones released a video of Mitt Romney talking about the nearly 50% of Americans who are dependent on the federal government for at least some of their income. Romney also talked about the 47% of Americans who pay no non-payroll income taxes. His conclusion in the video – which Mother Jones took secretly at a fundraiser several months ago – was that he was never going to win the votes of those people, since his message is about low taxes and decreasing government dependence. As is typical when a non-liberal talks about the truth of dependency on government, the media has become apoplectic. Never mind that, ...

Are Opponents of the the President’s Health Care Law overreacting to Romney?

Yesterday, Republican nominee for President Mitt Romney offered some possibly problematic language regarding his plan to repeal and replace the President’s health care law. This morning, Tea Party Patriots called upon Romney to clarify exactly what he meant by saying he would “not [get] rid of all of health-care reform.” A few hours before Tea Party Patriots published its concerns, Grace-Marie Turner blogged at National Review’s “The Corner” that foes of the President’s health care law should calm down and remember that while repeal of the law is important, so is replacing the law. Turner, President of the free-market health care ...

Will the President’s Health Care Law Survive Under a President Romney?

Since March 2010, getting rid of the President’s health care law has been one of the most important goals of the Tea Party. It dominated the Republican Party’s presidential primary, and was a major factor in the record 2010 elections. Unfortunately, on Sunday, GOP Presidential nominee Mitt Romney appeared to support leaving parts of the law intact: “I’m not getting rid of all of health care reform. Of course there are a number of things that I like in health care reform that I’m going to put in place,” he said on NBC’s “Meet The Press. “One is to make sure that those with pre-existing conditions can get coverage. Two is to assure ...

Gingrich/Romney race not a failure of Tea Party

By Mark Petrina Jay Bookman published a blog claiming a Gingrich/Romney race represents failure of the tea party because they are both establishment politicians. Bookman is wrong Herman Cain was a Tea Party favorite who dropped out because of the dirty tricks of a corrupt, partisan media . Romney is a contender because the "Establishment" is still very powerful. The media is very powerful, but despises the Tea Party, so we are fighting on lots of fronts. Gingrich, regardless of his baggage, is talking the Tea Party game more effectively and strongly than anybody else. He is the most aggressive anti-Obama, and has lots of appealing ideas. That ...

News Briefing for Thursday, March 5 TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: Obamacare protests resemble campaign rallies (Tea Party Patriots mentioned) “If the scene outside the Supreme Court on Wednesday resembled dueling campaign rallies — and it did — that was because many people's views on the hotly contested Obamacare case being argued inside fall along partisan lines. On one side were workers for conservative and free-market groups who were trying to outshout those on the other side from union and health care advocacy groups who, at one point, tried to sing over the pointed rhetoric coming from "Tea Party Patriots" and others…” http://www.usatoday.c...

TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: Senate Dems block GOP effort to tie DHS funding to Obama immigration actions “The Tea Party Patriots group is suggesting that Senate Republicans are backing down because they fear Americans will blame them for a partial DHS shutdown. “Senate Republicans are about to cave in to President Obama,” the group said Monday. “It’s time … to ratchet up the pressure on wobbly Senators.” A federal district court judge in Texas last week temporarily blocked the administration's plans to carry out an executive action that protects millions of illegal immigrants from deportation.” http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2015/02/24/t...

TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: A rare sighting: Republican presidential prospects come to California (TPP-sponsored event) ”California could become the kingmaker on the Republican side in June of 2016, and the people here are going to remember who came and asked for their vote instead of treating the state like an ATM,” said John Berry, statewide co-coordinator for the Tea Party Patriots group. Although Berry acknowledged that the chance of California going Republican in a general election is “a long shot,” he said conservative groups were working to influence elections large and small.

HEALTHCARE: Obamacare's Co-Ops: A Bigger Scandal Than Solyndra? “The decline and bankruptcy of insurance co-ops conceived by Obamacare is being trumpeted as another emblem of the law’s many failures. But the fiasco speaks to a much more parochial flaw that animates progressive PGR -0.15% views on healthcare. The co-ops aren’t dying only because they were hastily constructed, or poorly managed. Their disaster is far more willful and deliberate. They meant to lose money. Last year, the co-ops made a big bet. While private plans were raising their premiums for the second year of Obamacare, the co-ops proposed sharp cuts. Liberal policy makers ...
