Bipartisan foolishness to dictate your fitness

‘Cause this is a top priority for the federal government – never mind violations of the First and Fourth Amendments, balancing the budget, tax reform, federal transparency and corruption, apparently: A new House bill would task the Department of Health and Human Services with creating exercise guidelines for all Americans. Under the bipartisan bill, introduced by Representatives Ron Kind (D., Wis.) and Aaron Schock (R., Ill.), HHS would publish a “Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans” report every ten years that would recommend certain levels of exercise for different groups of Americans, with a special emphasis on children, based on ...

The guide to why Ohio should not partner with Washington on Medicaid expansion

Last week, Tea Party Patriots reported on the surrender by the governors of Ohio and Arizona to President Obama on Medicaid expansion. In more recent days, the Ohio Liberty Coalition (OLC) has published an impressively thorough examination of how and why Ohio’s Governor John Kasich has failed his state when it comes to the Medicaid expansion.

HEALTHCARE: Overhead costs exploding under ObamaCare, study finds “Five years after the passage of ObamaCare, there is one expense that’s still causing sticker shock across the healthcare industry: overhead costs. The administrative costs for healthcare plans are expected to explode by more than a quarter of a trillion dollars over the next decade, according to a new study published by the Health Affairs blog. The $270 billion in new costs, for both private insurance companies and government programs, will be “over and above what would have been expected had the law not been enacted,” one of the authors, David Himmelstein, wrote Wednesday. ...

Final Push to Protect the 4th Amendment

Now that everyone is back to their normal routines after the long Memorial Day weekend, I wanted to give you a recap of what happened last week and over the weekend in regards to the Patriot Act. Many of you were likely traveling or spending time with loved ones to remember those who served and paid the ultimate price protecting our freedoms. We recognize that generations of Americans have been so selfless that they have given their lives to ensure our liberty. I happened to be in Washington, DC, last Wednesday when Senator Rand Paul (KY) began his filibuster of the Patriot Act. I had some free time, so I decided to visit the Senate gallery to ...

TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: GOP Praises Court Halting Amnesty: 'Impatient Presidents Don't Get to Change the Law'  “…Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of the Tea Party Patriots, declared, "on to the Supreme Court."

TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: Far left, far right unite on some issues in Congress “…Just last week, the American Civil Liberties Union and the Tea Party Patriots joined forces in a media blitz aimed at forcing Congress to reject a reauthorization of the NSA bulk data collection program. On Wednesday, Republican presidential candidate Rand Paul went to the Senate floor to rail against the NSA in a filibuster-style speech. Sen. Martin Heinrich, a New Mexico Democrat, joined him with a speech of his own. “Given the overwhelming evidence that the current bulk collection program is not only unnecessary but also illegal, we’ve reached a critical turning ...

HEALTHCARE: Costs trouble Obamacare enrollees “More than one-third of Obamacare enrollees aren't happy with the extra out-of-pocket costs they must still pay for healthcare. Thirty-seven percent of respondents to a Kaiser Family Foundation poll released Thursday said they're "somewhat" or "very" dissatisfied with their plan's deductible — a set sum consumers must pay for some doctors visits or treatments before their insurer steps in. Those on plans that meet the new requirements under the Affordable Care Act were more likely to report problems with costs — like being unable to pay their medical bills or skipping doctors visits because of cost ...

TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: Tea Party Group Teams With ACLU, NAACP On Patriot Act “Growing concerns about the Patriot Act’s renewal are creating strange bedfellows. The Tea Party Patriots and the ACLU are running TV ads urging Americans to “tell Congress [to] protect our privacy.” On top of that, the executive director of Iowa’s ACLU and Tea Party Patriots’ boss Jenny Beth Martin have coauthored an op-ed in the Des Moines Register on “the need for significant reforms to curtail government surveillance authorities, like some of those included in the Patriot Act.” And even the NAACP — which hasn’t always been kind to the tea party movement ...
