“WE SUPPORT JEFF SESSIONS”

We support Attorney General Jeff Sessions and believe he is the right man, and the best man, to lead the Justice Department at this time. Senator and now Attorney General Jeff Sessions has been a loyal, highly visible, and early supporter of President Trump and his policy agenda.  He is a principled conservative leader who has demonstrated integrity and excellence throughout his public career.   He has already led the Department of Justice to correcting wrong-headed direction in many, many areas.  While all conservatives are not in agreement with all his decisions, we respect that he has undertaken many reforms with very few colleagues in the ...

HEALTHCARE: ObamaCare penalty could be too low, analysis finds “A new analysis highlights that it is often cheaper for people to pay ObamaCare’s penalty for not having health insurance than to buy coverage, meaning the penalty might be too low to spur middle-income people to get covered.  The analysis from the consulting firm Avalere Health finds that for people making less than 200 percent of the poverty line, or about $23,000, purchasing insurance is usually cheaper because of income-based subsidies under the law. The penalty for not having health insurance in 2015 is $325 or 2 percent of income, whichever is greater. But for healthy ...

HEALTHCARE: Obamacare spending leads to a higher budget deficit so far in 2015 “The Congressional Budget Office reported Wednesday that the federal government saw a higher budget deficit in the first half of fiscal year 2015 compared to 2014, and said higher spending due to Obamacare is part of the reason.

TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: The Speaker strikes back (Op-ed by Jenny Beth Martin) “House Speaker John Boehner’s latest volley in his petty war against conservatives in the GOP conference – while saying much more about himself than the men he’s targeting – provides a great opportunity for a discussion about Congress’ stewardship of taxpayer dollars. In the aftermath of the failed attempt to displace him in January, Boehner moved into recrimination mode with considerable dispatch.  For his sin of allowing colleagues to place his name in nomination for speaker, Rep. Dan Webster (R-Fla.) was bounced from the Rules Committee, along with his ...

HEALTHCARE: GOP aims to sink Obamacare with reconciliation But first they have to strike a difficult deal on an overall budget “Senate Republicans want to use a powerful budget maneuver known as reconciliation to go after President Barack Obama’s health care law — particularly if the Supreme Court strikes down key provisions of Obamacare this June. Using the fast-tracking procedure offers some advantage for Republicans, largely because a reconciliation package can’t be filibustered. But it’s not going to be easy. First, House and Senate Republicans need to agree on a budget resolution, which could be difficult with fiscal conserva...
