On Your World with Neil Cavuto, April 15, 2014, former NY Lt. Governor, author and Obamacare expert Betsy McCaughey spoke about the financial myths of the Affordable Care Act. In this clip she discusses her prediction that over one million people will stop paying their premiums after they discover the real costs of the ACA.
Well, by the looks of this tweet from Healthcare.gov, the Department of Health
and Human Services just might agree.
‘I’ve wanted to move in a different direction for a while,’ Kremer says
Earlier today, I learned in an email that my friend Amy Kremer has resigned from Tea Party Express. She has been in the Tea Party/Conservative movement since day one and Chairman of TPE for quite some time. It didn’t take very long after the initial shock wore off for my excitement to build as I realized that she must be headed for new challenges in the effort to save our republic. From Amy’s Facebook page:
Friends, I resigned from Tea Party Express. I wanted to share the news with you!
Louisville, KY – Amy Kremer announced today her resignation as Chairman of the Tea Party Express, effective immediately:
“This has been a really difficult decision for me, but the time has come for me to leave Tea Party Express. I’ve wanted to move in a different direction for a while, but also wanted to make sure that any change I make was also a positive change for the conservative movement.
“So as we move into this election cycle, I think the time is right.
“As one of the only remaining members of the original tour, Tea Party Express has been a huge part of my life and I am proud of the historic work we accomplished – like partnering with CNN to host the first ever Tea Party Presidential Debate and electing conservatives such as Senators Mike Lee and Ted Cruz to Congress.
“The past 5 years of working with the conservative grassroots movement has been the most meaningful of my life. As one of the original founders of the modern day tea party movement, I am humbled by the community of activists who have built it. I’ve very grateful to the many people I’ve met and worked with along the way.
“While I can’t give the specifics yet, my new projects will keep me working in that movement. While I may no longer be on a bus, I will definitely be on the ground, continuing my work in the movement and for the conservative cause. I’m excited about engaging in competitive Senate primaries and supporting fiscal conservatives in the coming weeks.”
In an article that appeared on CNN’s PoliticalTicker blog published shortly after Kremer’s Facebook post, some of the specifics about her future were revealed. Mitch McConnell can’t be too pleased. Hint: I don’t think it’s a coincidence that she made her announcement from Kentucky. Read the piece on PoliticalTicker.com here.

Here’s a little levity on Tax Day (if that’s possible). You may rest assured, however, that every cent you pay will be put to good use. And by the way, I’m sure all those folks out there with free cell phones are extending you their warm appreciation. Whether or not you’ve heard Pharrell’s hit song “Happy,” you can appreciate this Tax Day parody by Reason’s Remy.

On Monday, April 14th former ACORN whistleblower and True the Vote spokesperson Anita Moncrief announced the launching of a new PAC, The Black Conservatives Fund:
“I am proud to be on the board of a new PAC, The Black Conservative Fund. BCF will support black conservative and Republican candidates. We are also focusing on education, training, challenging race baiters/hustlers and working together to improve our communities.
“Our website http://blackconservativesfund.com is live and our proud board members are: Ken Blackwell, CL Bryant, Sonnie Johnson, Erik Rush, Kevin Daniels, Princella Smith, KCarl Smith, Alfonzo Rachel, Ron Miller, myself and others.”
The press release announcing the launch stated the following: Black Conservatives Fund is committed to supporting black conservatives who are dedicated to spreading the message of limited government and traditional values. The organization will support candidates through direct contributions in addition to web, TV, and radio advertisements, conducting get-out-the-vote drives, and funding other activities that BCF endorsed candidates may need. “All across America, black conservatives are running for office in record numbers. The lock that the liberals have held on the black vote is slowly but surely breaking,” said Anita Moncrief, a founding member of BCF’s board of advisors. You may find the complete press release here.
The BCF came out slugging and wasted no time announcing that the first two candidates it is supporting are T. W. Shannon, running for Congress from Oklahoma, and Mia Love, running a second campaign for Congress from Utah.

There have been may letters/stories like this over the last few years, and they always reinforce the horror that is Obamacare. Unfortunately, much more is yet to come – ADB
WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks cited a letter today from a Decatur physician who wrote that the Patient Protection & Affordable Care Act was resulting in a “war against doctors.”
Brooks, R-Huntsville, read the letter from Dr. Marlin Gill, who called for the repeal of the new national healthcare program known as Obamacare. Brooks has also been a vocal opponent of the law and voted for its repeal.
“America should heed the warnings of doctors like Dr. Marlin Gill of Decatur, Alabama,” Brooks said in closing his speech. “Failure to do so risks unnecessary patient deaths while destroying the best health care system the world has ever known.”

In the Florida District 13 Special Election to replace the late Republican Rep. Bill Young, Republican Jolly received 48.5 percent of the vote, progressive Sink 46.6, and libertarian Lucas Overby 4.8%. The spoiler candidate’s night was spoiled. I guess that’s why Rand Paul and his dad run as Republicans.
A warning to Democrats: David Jolly’s victory in the Florida special election is a big sign the upcoming midterms could be painful.
Privately regarded by Republicans as a weak candidate, the former lobbyist Jolly overcame both funding obstacles and a Libertarian party challenger who received five percent of the vote to beat Democrat Alex Sink.
The race was widely considered a referendum on Obamacare, with top political prognosticators calling it a “must win” for Democrats in the weeks leading up to the election.
A Sink loss would “would almost certainly be regarded by dispassionate observers as a sign that President Barack Obama could constitute an albatross around the neck of his party’s nominees in November,” Stuart Rothenberg, one of the most highly respected political handicappers in the country, wrote in Roll Call.

Florida Democrat Alan Grayson is under investigation for domestic violence according to a statement from Capt. Angelo Nieves of Florida’s Orange County Sheriff’s Office.
Along with submitting pictures which reportedly support the allegations, Grayson’s wife also alleges that Grayson told her he would leave her “In the gutter” with nothing in the presence of the couple’s young children.
Grayson co-sponsored the 2013 re-authorization of the Violence Against Women Act.
Grayson’s wife Lolita, who also recently filed for divorce, claiming their 24 year marriage is “irretrievably broken,” claims Congressman Grayson “pushed her against a door, causing her to fall to the ground, during a confrontation Saturday at their home on Oak Park Road.” Read more at: breitbart.com.

Always candid congressman Trey Gowdy (R SC) discusses National Security Advisor Susan Rice’s comments on Meet the Press, where she said she has no regrets for using misleading talking points about the Benghazi attack.
About David Gregory’s softball (or should I say beach ball) interview with Rice on Sunday’s “Meet the Press,” he said, “I get tougher questions in the Bojangles drive-thru than he asked her.”

LANSING – Today Rep. Gary Peters set his Washington DC legal attack dogs out to intimidate and silence Julie Boonstra, a Michigan mother battling leukemia who had the courage to speak up after the insurance plan she liked was cancelled due to the Affordable Care Act.
Instead of listening to Julie’s concerns, Peters took steps to strong-arm Michigan television stations to simply pull “Julie’s Story” from the airwaves. These are desperate political tactics from someone who is increasingly incapable of defending his support for Obamacare.
AFP-Michigan State Director Scott Hagerstrom issued the following statement:
“The fact that Representative Peters would sic his legal team on a Michigan mother battling cancer to muzzle her tells you everything you need to know about his record of putting politics over people.
“Julie Boonstra was brave enough to tell her story about how Obamacare is making her life worse and instead of offering compassion and solutions, Rep. Peters responded with intimidation.
“Rep. Peters is an unwavering supporter of Obamacare and now he won’t take responsibility for the devastating impact it’s having on millions of Americans just like Julie.
“This attack on her credibility is disgusting, unwarranted, and inexcusable. Congressman Peters and his indecent campaign team should be ashamed of themselves.”

Amy Kremer is chair of Tea Party Express and a friend. In this article she writes about Katrina Pierson a conservative running for Congress against establishment RINO, Pete Sessions, in the upcoming Republican primary in Texas. The article also delves deeply into the Grand Old Party’s efforts to sabotage conservative candidates no matter the cost. Maybe they should forgo the elephant logo for that of a Kamikaze pilot? – ADB
By Amy Kremer
(via Rare) Have you heard of Katrina Pierson? Probably not.
We hear a lot about the problems the Republican Party has attracting voters outside its traditional base, perceived as overwhelmingly male, older, married and white.
GOP-affiliated talking heads lament the fact that women, young people, singles and minorities won’t give the Republican Party a second look. Party operatives spend millions on post-mortems and autopsies analyzing the intractable puzzle of the GOP’s lack of acceptance within these circles.
We are told that Republicans might never win national elections again because they alienate minorities and don’t know how to reach or effectively communicate their message to a diverse set of voters. Continue reading at: rare.us.
Pat Caddell said yesterday on Fox News that the reason Republican leadership hasn’t pushed for a high level investigation of the IRS for targeting the Tea Party is because they want the IRS to go after the Tea Party:
When you have 71 percent who want an investigation, 64 percent who believe it is a sign of corruption including nearly a majority of Democrats, the reason is the establishment Republicans want the IRS to go after the Tea Party. Got it? They want them to go after the Tea Party because the Tea Parties are an outside threat to their power hold. And I’m telling you the lobbying consulting class of the Republican Party or Republican leadership who have been attacking the Tea Party and alienating them, they want the IRS to do this! therightscoop.com.
