IRS building in Washington DC view from outside front door
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has officially confirmed that it’s going to allow illegal immigrants to apply for up to three-years-worth of tax refunds. Yes, you read that right. Illegal immigrants, who broke the law by entering the U.S. and continued to break the law by residing here, can now claim benefits from the IRS. The policy, of course, is all thanks to President Obama’s executive action on amnesty.

Statement of Jenny Beth Martin on Boehner’s latest cave

“Sadly, we’ve seen yet another reason why conservatives do not and should not trust Establishment Republicans. Rewarded by the American people with historic majorities for opposing executive amnesty, their capitulation began almost immediately. “First, Speaker Boehner whipped votes with the President in December’s lame duck session, so eager was he to fund nearly the entire government through September. ‘Don’t worry,’ we were told. The House would not fund the Obama executive amnesty. “And how many days ago did the Speaker reiterate his hard line and ...

SCOTUS takes on Obamacare, round two

United States Supreme Court
On Wednesday, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in King v. Burwell. The stakes [1] couldn’t be higher. At issue is the legality of Obamacare subsidies. The Obama Administration must argue it has the legal authority to issue subsidies in all 50 states, even though the Affordable Care Act only allows for subsidies through an “exchange established by the state.” That very point was driven home by none other than Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber, who admitted in 2012 that [2], "[I]f you're a state and you don’t set up an Exchange, that means your ...

View of border fence
Last week, the Senate voted to begin debate on a bill to fund the Department of Homeland Security before its funding runs out at the end of this month. And three times, Senate Democrats filibustered the bill because they object to language that would strip funding from President Obama’s executive amnesty [1]. Where are the Democrats’ priorities? Obviously, they’re not with funding the Department of Homeland Security. Our Republican leaders, to their credit, have stood firm on this bill. Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is bringing up the version that ...
