Louisiana Senators and Staff Scarce When Activists Seek to Remind them of their Promises

On Thursday, Tea Party Patriots activists in the great state of Louisiana set out to deliver signatures from Louisiana Patriots asking Senators Cassidy and Kennedy to keep their promises and vote to repeal ObamaCare. You would think it would be relatively easy for a constituent to remind their Senator of a promise, but they are busy people. Even if they aren’t available to meet their constituents, you’d think at least a member of the Senator’s staff would meet constituents, given they all serve the people. But as has been the case in other states recently, it’s not as easy as you might expect! When our activists showed up, petitions in ...

Speaker Ryan: Anthem Obamacare withdrawal in Wisc., Indiana forcing people to ‘scramble’ to find new plans, doctors

Anthem announced yesterday that it would be leaving the Obamacare exchanges for Indiana and Wisconsin in 2018. The health insurance plan provider will still provide plans off the exchange for a select few counties in both states; however, purchasers will not be able to use tax subsidies for their coverages. The Washington Examiner has the full story: Anthem said in a statement it made its decision because "the individual market remains volatile." It blamed uncertainty ahead over whether it would receive insurance payments from the federal government, as well as whether the government would enforce the Obamacare law that requires people to have ...

DHS rescinds DAPA policy that would have shielded illegal-immigrant parents whose children are lawful residents

The Department of Homeland Security this week rescinded DAPA, an Obama-era immigration policy that – if it weren’t in limbo per a Supreme Court stay on a lower-court injunction – would have authorized three-year work permits for the illegal-immigrant parents of children who are lawful U.S. residents. The Washington Examiner has the details: DHS Secretary John Kelly signed a memo on Thursday directing his employees not to carry out an instruction his predecessor, Jeh Johnson, had put in writing in November 2014 that sought to extend a 2012 program aimed at the illegal immigrant community. Kelly made the decision to revoke the policy ...

Jenny Beth Martin: Spending bill should appease President Trump, NOT Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer

Senate Democrats like Sen. Chuck Schumer are putting up a fight when it comes to including financing for a wall along the U.S.-Mexican border in the spending bill that needs to be voted on in the next two weeks if the government is going to keep operating, Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin says in her latest column. Establishment politicians, Rep. Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) and Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), seem all-too-willing to back down even though President Trump’s popularity and election derives in large part from Americans’ widespread support of tough immigration policies meant to put Americans first, drive down violent ...

Binghamton Homepage has the details: Attendees say Schumer had written-off Gorsuch before he was announced as the nominee. Tea Party Patriots Coordinator Gilda Ward says Schumer and other Democrats are acting like sore losers. "The Democrats have expressed so much hatred, obstructionism and violence in some cases.
