TPP: Senate Democrats’ Investigation into IRS Targeting a “Whitewash”

ATLANTA, GA – Today, Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of Tea Party Patriots, blasted the Senate Permanent Committee on Investigations and Senator Carl Levin’s (D-MI) report on the so-called “investigation” into the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of tea party groups. “The Senate Democrats’ so-called ‘investigation’ into the IRS’ selective targeting of tea party and conservative groups for additional scrutiny has been a whitewash from the very beginning,” said Jenny Beth Martin. “The man who conducted this so-called ‘investigation,’ Senator Levin, is himself the subject of a pending investigation for exerting pressure ...

Obama Lost Jon Stewart

Over the last couple of weeks, Jon Stewart has garnered a great number of conservative fans for his hammering of HHS Secretary Sebelius and another segment of his show dedicated to how the Obamacare website is falling apart. Last night, he dedicated almost 15 minutes of his show to bashing both parties in Congress, the President, the Obamacare website, and the NSA’s spying on Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel. While some of the content is questionable in nature – some language may be unsuitable for children – the political content is pure gold. Stewart skewered the absolute ridiculous nature of everything that is wrong in Washington. ...

Obamacare Loses Piers Morgan and Jon Stewart

Over the last several years, CNN host Piers Morgan has gained a reputation as an aggressive ideologue who toes the big government line on everything from guns to religious freedom. Jon Stewart, of course, is the liberal host of “The Daily Show” who recently took HHS Secretary Sebelius to school on Obamacare. It looks like the American people can officially count Morgan and Stewart as official critiques of the Obamacare rollout after last night’s shows. First up is Morgan, who interviewed White House Press Secretary Jay Carney: MORGAN: Joining me now is White House Press Secretary Jay Carney. Jay, thanks for joining me. As suppose you have ...

Stewart vs. Sebelius: HHS Secretary Implodes during Grilling from “Daily Show” Host

On Monday night, Jon Stewart had HHS Secretary Sebelius on “The Daily Show” to discuss Obamacare and its failed exchange websites. The top health care official in America was treated to a proper interrogation, beginning as soon as she sat down. Stewart pulled up a laptop and said he was going to download every movie in history while she tried to sign up for the exchanges…and they would see who got done first. The segment is worth watching in full, especially because after the interview, Stewart accused Sebelius of lying to him about why employers have a mandate delay and individuals do not. However, there are three things Stewart missed in ...

TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: Patriot Act Renewal: Senate Overwhelmingly Votes To Proceed “…Conservative groups are arguing against McConnell’s amendments, and that could augur trouble in the House. So far, the USA Freedom Act has enjoyed unusual support from both tea party groups and the American Civil Liberties Union. “We support passage of the USA Freedom Act as passed by the House, and see no need whatsoever for these amendments which are obviously designed to weaken the bill,” Tea Party Patriots CEO Jenny Beth Martin said in a statement. “Simply put, if it is amended in the manner that the Majority Leader desires, we will be forced to ...

TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: End the NSA dragnet (Op-ed) http://www.visaliatimesdelta.com/story/opinion/2015/06/01/end-nsa-dragnet/28276189/ HEALTHCARE: Obamacare's Double-Digit Rate Hikes For 2016 Disclosed “After two years of relatively stable premiums across the country, rates will jump in 2016 by double-digit percentages for individual policy purchasers on public exchanges under the Affordable Care Act in practically every state, according to the first glimpse of proposed costs for next year released by the Obama administration. The rate increases aren’t a huge surprise as health insurers across the country in recent weeks have been disclosing ...

Hillary Loses First Primary of 2016

Jacksonville -- Republicans scored a big win in Florida this week. Big, that is, for anybody interested in beating Hillary Clinton next year. You know the syllogism. Anybody who wants to beat Hillary in 2016 must win Florida and there are only two ways to win Florida – the Bush way and the Obama way. You can run up Republican margins in the north and pare down Democratic margins in the south. That’s how Bush won here in 2000 and 2004. Or you can run up Democratic margins in the south and pare down Republican margins in the north. That’s how Obama won in 2008 and 2012. In 2012, those pared-down GOP margins in north Florida played a big part ...

HEALTHCARE: One in four Americans who got insurance still can’t afford medical care: Study “One in four people who bought health insurance on their own couldn’t afford medical care last year, according to a study released Thursday that shows out-of-pockets costs are still getting between Americans and their doctors despite Obamacare’s progress in cutting the ranks of the uninsured. Families USA studied people who purchased insurance in the non-group market — they weren’t covered through their jobs or a public program — in 2014, the first full year for which Obamacare’s marketplace was fully operational, and found 25.2 percent ...
