BREAKING: Americans don’t trust big government

Pres. Ronald Regan once famously said that “the nine most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” Reagan may have uttered those words decades ago, but - according to a new poll – they still ring true today. An overwhelming majority of Americans don’t trust the federal government. A full 61 percent of American voters don’t have faith in the powers that run Washington. What’s equally startling is that trust among registered Independents has dropped 32 percentage points since 2002. For Republicans, trust has gone from 63 percent to 25 percent. When voters are asked about President ...

Jenny Beth Martin: Time to end the Obamacare exemption!

Tea Party Patriots co-founder Jenny Beth Martin has a new op-ed at Breitbart News about last week’s Obamacare exemption rallies. On June 17, patriots from around the country gathered at their Representative’s or Senator’s local offices to protest Congress’ special exemption from Obamacare. At the end of the day, conservatives rallied at more than 500 offices around the country. As a result of the protests, five additional Congressmen have agreed to sign on as co-sponsors of H.R. 1953, also known as the “No Exemption for Washington From Obamacare Act.” Writes Martin: Our grievance is simple: we want Congress to participate in the law ...

Proof Jonathan Gruber was more than just “some adviser”

New emails obtained by the Wall Street Journal confirm just how involved liberal MIT economist Jonathan Gruber was in crafting the Obamacare law. In case you’ve forgotten, Gruber is the policy wonk who was caught saying Obama’s health care reform bill became law thanks in equal parts to both lack of transparency and the “stupidity of the American voter.” Yeah, safe to say America didn’t think THAT was funny... Reports the Wall Street Journal [1]: Jonathan Gruber, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology economist whose comments about the health-care law touched off a political furor, worked more closely than previously known with the ...

Income Inequality, Beltway Style

I had to be in Washington the other day, so I squirreled away an hour to drive by my old house in northern Virginia. My wife Jane and I had bought it when we went to Washington with Reagan. Heady days, those. We were young and idealistic and determined to help The Gipper beat the Soviets in the Cold War, free up the American economy, and put a halt to the spreading bureaucracy of central government. In time, we came around to the idea that two out of three ain’t bad. It was a great house to raise a family – a graceful Cape Cod-style clapboard with a big yard. Shade trees with swings for the kids. A garden for Jane, a library for me. First thing ...

It’s Time To Investigate Congress’s Illegal Obamacare Designation!

Tea Party Patriots is proud to sign onto a joint letter started by our friend Phil Kerpen at American Commitment to demand answers about Congress’ special Obamacare exemption. It is addressed to Congressman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Obamacare is causing insurance rates to skyrocket, coverage reductions, and massive job loss. Congress is noticing, but instead of repealing Obamacare, Congress decided to exclude themselves from the horrible law by illegally joining the Washington, D.C. Small Business healthcare exchange. Members of Congress and their staff could only join the exchange by ...

Longtime combatant Neal B. Freeman looks at the GOP, and conservatives’ place in it, from the early days of NR on.

Note: This column originally appeared in National Review on December 4, 2013   I understand that you’ve been involved in the GOP civil war for some time. Only 50 years or so. I came in late.   How did you first become involved? I headed Youth for Goldwater in New York. Wasn’t Goldwater’s principal opponent for the Republican nomination, Nelson Rockefeller, governor of New York at the time? I had grown up in New York and at some point began to fear that Rockefeller would be governor for life. Mine, as well as his.   Why didn’t you support Rockefeller? His big-government Republicanism was ’roided up. ...
