Actually, Speaker Boehner, we disagree on a lot

Over at The Daily Caller today, Tea Party Patriots’ Jenny Beth Martin has an op-ed responding to House Speaker John Boehner’s interview on 60 Minutes. The Speaker seems to think the Tea Party is all about disagreements “over tactics” and not substantive disagreements over things like Obamacare, immigration, and budgets. But as Martin explains, that’s a warped view of the tea party movement. Martin writes [1]: The Speaker trivializes the differences that led to the biggest intraparty rebellion against a sitting Speaker since the Civil War. His first problem isn’t with outside groups, it’s his own GOP colleagues in the House. When one ...

It’s not one of different vision … It’s a disagreement over tactics, from time to time,” said Speaker of the House John Boehner, on 60 Minutes Sunday night. More than a year ago, Speaker Boehner took serious offense when conservative groups criticized a budget deal he favored... Continue here.

The new AG must speak out on amnesty

Loretta Lynch, President Obama’s nominee to replace Eric Holder as Attorney General, will no doubt have an endless supply of tough questions to answer as she goes through her confirmation process. At the top of the list, however, should be whether she supports the president’s plan for unilateral, executive amnesty for illegal immigrants. Last week, Sens. Ted Cruz and Mike Lee, who both sit on the Senate Judiciary Committee, released a joint statement saying that “The Attorney General is the president’s chief law enforcement officer. As such, the nominee must demonstrate full and complete commitment to the law.”[1] The senators went on to ...

Obamacare Architect’s “Stupid” Comment is No “Speak-o”

Another moment of truth has surfaced for Obamacare, casting even more doubt and disdain on the President’s signature piece of legislation. In a candid admission at last year’s Annual Health Economists’ Conference, Jonathan Gruber, an MIT economist and chief architect of the healthcare law, revealed how the Affordable Care Act’s nebulous wording was intentional. The purpose: to nefariously mask the mandate as a non-tax and downplay its redistribution mechanism, so “stupid” voters wouldn’t oppose the Administration’s healthcare power grab. “This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score the mandate as taxes. ...

TPP Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin: Don’t linger on our account, Mr. Speaker!

News broke[1] on Monday that House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) might not serve another full two-year term with the gavel. Whether Boehner gives up the Speaker’s chair tomorrow or a year from tomorrow, it will be a victory for conservatives who cherish personal freedom, economic freedom and a debt-free future. By all means, Mr. Speaker, if your heart’s not in this, just leave now and avoid the rush. Regardless of the date of any potential early departure, Boehner’s legacy will be one of capitulation and shame with conservative Americans. In 2013, John Boehner promised that the next time a debt-ceiling bill came up, he would exact conces...

How Much Does Speaker Boehner Want to Repeal Obamacare?

Tea Party activists across the country have long questioned Speaker Boehner’s dedication to repealing Obamacare. He voted to end the government “shutdown,” for example, and other than during the “shutdown” has refused to draw a line in the sand since he became Speaker almost three years ago. Despite voting to fully reopen the government, CNS News reports the Speaker and his leadership team are back to tough talk: At a Capitol Hill press conference on Tuesday, CNSNews.com asked Speaker Boehner, “Is the Republicans’ long-term plan to repeal Obamacare?” Boehner said, “We want to repeal Obamacare and replace it with patient-centered ...
