Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee grilled Gorsuch during the week over his prior rulings and ...

Tea Party Patriots: Gov. Christie’s $300M Money Grab From Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield Customers is Wrong

Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots President and co-founder Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today reacting to Gov. Chris Christie’s (R-NJ) proposal to take insurance premiums from Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey for a new government program. “Governor Christies’ scheme to grab $300 million from the reserve funding of Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield is wrong. It is the very essence of government overreach. It would hike premiums, create more risk for the New Jersey health insurance market, and undermine healthcare for all New Jersey tax payers. This scheme appears to be nothing but a PR stunt and a power grab by ...

Bill demands stronger protections for VA whistleblowers

Congressional plans to encourage Veterans Affairs employees to speak out against departmental abuses like waste and negligence – and shield such whistleblowers from retaliation – may soon be put to a vote. Stars and Stripes has the story: A long-stalled plan in Congress to strengthen protections for Veterans Affairs Department employees who disclose waste and misconduct – and to punish officials who retaliate against them – is poised to hitch a ride to enactment this week on the high-priority measure to head off a partial government shutdown… While the measure would continue funding most government operations only through Dec. 9, the ...

Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) Sunday during a Tea Party Patriots national conference call told grassroots leaders nationwide that the “biggest threat” to national security is a general unwillingness to acknowledge dangers right in front of our noses – especially when it comes to our electrical grid. “We have our heads buried so far – I’ll say – in the sand in terms of our critical infrastructure, particularly our electrical grid,” he says. The threats to our critical infrastructure include EMPs; geomagnetic disturbances; and cyber attacks that could potentially shut down our electrical ...

National Review: Plans to tackle our national debt need to be front and center

The national debt isn’t a scintillating topic; we get it. But ignoring it won’t make our debt and all the troubles associated with it go away. It’s time for the issue to get more airtime from politicians this year. National Review has the scoop: Judging from the presidential campaign so far, perhaps we should put the debt’s image on a milk carton somewhere. In the last Republican debate, there was precisely one question on the debt — and the candidates answered it by talking about their tax plans. That was far too typical. According to the FiveThirtyEight website, “the deficit” was mentioned an average of two times in the first five ...

West Virginia’s Bluefield Daily Telegraph has the details: The report prompted denunciations from members of Congress including Sen. Johnny Isakson, R-Georgia, a member of the Senate Finance Committee. “This is what happens when you have a monopoly instead of a competitive environment,” he said in an interview. Isakson has already been critical of the ...
