Jenny Beth Martin in The DC: Our best chance to repeal Obamacare

Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin has new op-ed up at The Daily Caller about the best way to repeal Obamacare now – before it can do any more damage.

Writes Martin: Millions of Americans have lost their insurance because of Obamacare, and tens of millions have seen their premiums rise – perverse consequences of a bill the Democrats promised would provide universal, affordable health care ...
