I recently wrote about the unconstitutional alternative to Obamacare rolled out by Republicans late last month, pointing out as soon as GOP leadership uttered the word “replace,” it was clear Republicans had no intention on taking a constitutional route.Details
The Supreme Court constantly ignores the Constitution and makes up “constitutional law” by edict. The fact anybody puts any faith in this panel of politically connected lawyers in black dresses receiving federal paychecks to limit the power of the federal government strikes me as absurd on its face.Details
WASHINGTON (June 27, 2016) – House Republicans unveiled their plan to replace Obamacare last week. Whether it would usher in “better” policies than the Affordable Care Act remains up for debate, but one thing is certain – it’s every bit as unconstitutional as Obamacare.Details
Kansas Republicans Passed a Resolution back in 2013 opposing Common Core.
Today, the Republican-dominated state House took the End Common Core bill, HB2292, which passed committee on 02-18 – and withdrew it from the House calendar, sending it back to the committee.
Is this a death-knell for the bill? Quite possibly.
They really don’t want to do their job…
Don’t depend on your political brand to protect your interests. Don’t listen to what politicians say. Watch what they do – and act accordingly.Details
South Dakota Republicans Join Democrats in Killing Resolution to Protect the Right to Keep and Bear Arms
PIERRE, S.D. (March 4, 2016) – Four Republican senate committee members joined a pair of Democrats to kill a non-binding resolution in the South Dakota legislature that would have reaffirmed the fundamental, natural right to keep and bear arms.Details
The scam that is the republican establishment is summed up by this quote from Mitt Romney: “Without Tom pushing it, I don’t think we would have had Romneycare,” Romney said. “Without Romneycare, I don’t think we would have Obamacare. So, without Tom a lot of people wouldn’t have health insurance.” If your only choice is…Details
In solidly red Arkansas, with Republicans now controlling both houses of the state legislature and the governor’s office, one would expect robust opposition to federal overreach, particularly Obamacare.Details
Some people want you to believe that the Constitution is in good hands because Republicans control a large majority of state legislatures. This couldn’t be further from the truth.Details
In Mississippi yesterday, the Senate Public Health and Welfare committee killed HB722 without a recorded or public vote. The bill would have allowed terminally-ill patients to try investigational treatments without full FDA approval. The legislation is supported by the Goldwater Institute and has passed in at least 5 other states. The Mississippi House passed it last month, 120-0. Inside sources tell us that Republican leadership in the Senate didn’t want the bill to get to the Governor’s desk, so they quietly killed it in Committee before the Senate could even vote on it.
This shouldn’t be news: If you want more liberty, Republicans aren’t your friends. That counts for both federal and state politicians. At best, they’re chess pieces that you can work to push in a direction that they see as popular.
