Republicans Need To Deliver Something…Soon

Derek Hunter, Whatever happens in the special runoff election in Georgia’s 6th congressional district, Republicans better be paying attention. Democrats are motivated; Republicans are not. If Republicans don’t follow through on what they’ve been promising, what they’ve said for years they will deliver, they not only will lose in 2018, they will deserve it. Democrats

House Republican moderates must repeal ObamaCare

David McIntosh, Vice President Mike Pence says Republicans are united in keeping their promise to repeal ObamaCare. House Speaker Paul Ryan says the same.  But some House Republicans are openly saying they’ll break that promise, conceding they played their constituents for suckers and undermining leaders they claim to respect, such as Pence and Ryan. Not

Congressional Republicans take heat at home on ObamaCare

Congressional Republicans returned this weekend to their districts to get another earful about ObamaCare, while giving mixed statements about how close they are to replacing the health care law and suggesting that avoiding a looming government shutdown is now the priority. California GOP Rep. Tom McClintock again held a town hall event in which residents

Rand Paul ‘Very Optimistic’ About Repealing Obamacare After Golfing with Trump

Charlie Spiering, President Donald Trump golfed with Sen. Rand Paul this afternoon, together with White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney. “We had a great day with the president. Played some golf, and we talked and we talked about a little bit of health care,” Paul told reporters after the game. “I continue to be very

The Circular Firing Squad

Derek Hunter, President John F. Kennedy once said, “Victory has 100 fathers and defeat is an orphan.” This remains true and was on full display when the first attempt at repealing Obamacare was pulled before a vote in the House of Representatives. Since that moment, Republicans have reverted to their old ways and reformed into

The AHCA Died Because Some Republicans Still Have Values and Spines

Frank Camp, With the news that the American Health Care Act (AHCA) was pulled Friday, and President Trump showing signs that he’s ready to throw down some blame, and retreat to 1600 Penn, it would be easy to feel defeated. However, there’s a silver lining. Yes, House Republicans failed to begin the process of repealing the

In One Paragraph, Mark Levin Nails Republican Leadership

Frank Camp, On Friday, legal scholar, author, and conservative radio/TV host Mark Levin ripped House Republicans over their failed attempt to replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Taking to Facebook, Levin published a short, but incredibly powerful message, aimed mostly at Speaker of the House Paul Ryan:  “Mr. Ryan, you continue with your mantra, that

The Issa (and Blue State Republican) Dilemma Stand Right or Get Left

Arthur Schaper, Congressman Darrell Issa (R-CA) faced the closest race of his career in 2016. I was not completely surprised. In 2013, one article polled public attitudes about the congressman, who had a net negative, just 43 percent. Issa’s standing with Republicans in general had wavered as well, since many people see him as more

Senate & House Conservatives Oppose ‘Obamacare Lite’ Legislation; Have Better Replacement

Frank Camp, Ever since the American Health Care Act was introduced by House Republicans, conservatives have been blasting it as “Obamacare Lite.” Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro recently wrote about the bill’s five most critical faults. It “retains requirements that insurance cover people with pre-existing conditions,” making insurance into a “piggy bank” rather than a

To Make America Great Again, Paul Ryan and John McCain Both Must Go

Republicans, particularly conservative Republicans, are none too happy with the recent RyanCare debacle that offered up a version of Obamacare-light but did nothing to actually allow free market powers to reduce the cost of healthcare, increase choice, and free Americans from the disastrous burdens imposed on them by the Obama regime. Ryan had years to
