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 ...

Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots President and co-founder Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today in response to former Speaker John Boehner’s remarks that Obamacare would not be repealed and replaced. “There’s a reason we got rid of John Boehner.  Now, as then, he pontificates with elitist hypocrisy.

Jenny Beth’s Journal: CNN botches its coverage of HHS Secretary Nominee Rep. Tom Price

Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin in her latest column sets the record straight when it comes to the CNN report incorrectly maligning Health and Human Services Secretary Nominee Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.) for less than $3,000 in medical-device-industry stocks the congressman wasn’t even aware of prior to his pushing legislation that would have helped de-regulate the industry.

His broker informed him on April 4 of the March trade, and Price ...

University uses taxpayer funding to buy custom Snuggies, trip to Hawaii

Taxpayer money in the form of federal grant funding went to purchase custom embroidered Snuggies and a trip to Hawaii for the University of Washington. An audit last month found the absurd expenses paid for with taxpayer dollars that had been allocated for scientific research. The Washington Free Beacon reports: Taxpayer-funded National Science Foundation grants were used to purchase Snuggies, pottery, and a trip to Hawaii.

Having trouble contacting the IRS this tax season? That’s no surprise, according to a recent Government Accountability Report that says the agency’s customer service is abysmal – a record some in Congress attribute to the IRS’ rehiring of employees fired for disciplinary reasons. 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 ...
