In their haste to impose an historic affront to individual liberty, the authors of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) neglected to provide the federal bureaucracy with either the funding necessary to build ObamaCare exchanges within the various states OR the authority to award tax credits or impose penalties on the American public.
For when the ACA was written it was foolishly believed by lawmakers that each of the 50 states would immediately take on the near 100 million dollar responsibility of completing an ObamaCare exchange within its borders—an exchange being the sales center without which no ObamaCare business may be transacted, no healthcare policies sold.
But today a desperate Kathleen Sebelius and her Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) have gone from depending on states to implement the Affordable Care Act to threatening those same states for dragging their feet and performing acts of outright rebellion against both the law and the … Continue Reading:The Supreme Court re-wrote ObamaCare in order to salvage it.

We should only get mail delivered on Mondays and Thursdays.
The Conservatives in the House should be drafting a bill concerning the number of taxpayer funded vacations any future president gets, and a cap on costs over which the President is responsible. Going to Camp David or their private home for extended times are fine, as they are considered “working vacations”. High priced hotels, lavish multiple, separate family vacations on the taxpayer dime must have some restrictions. Even the Royal Family in Britain has a set allowance. There is no reason our President’s, (and other elected officials perks), should be unlimited or undefined.
No politician other than the president should receive any lifetime pension from the taxpayers above $100,000 a year.
A definition of the duties of the unelected first lady is due. A cap on their taxpayer funded activities is long overdue. These women are not elected, and there is no oversight of … Continue Reading:Woulda, shoulda, coulda in Washington and elsewhere

What is going to happen to our 401 (k) accounts and IRA’s after January 1? Will the retirement accounts which many Americans have sacrificed so much to accumulate be rolled over into federally issued and guaranteed bonds in order to prop up notoriously under-funded, union pension funds across the country? Getting an answer will prove to be daunting, especially as media attention seems focused on little but the impending “fiscal cliff.”
Listening to a poignant, impromptu speech given by Linda from St. Lucie County during the Allen West recount makes clear just how hard she worked to raise three daughters on her own. It’s a story which certainly puts a tear in the eye and an ounce of worry into the heart of many listeners. ”I worked hard to save that money. We went without,” she said, getting more emotional with each word. ”Now, what’s going to happen to 401 (ks)?” … Continue Reading:Full steam ahead on theft of IRA’s and 401k’s by the DC ruling class

Union heads of both the ICE and Border Patrol Councils have stated that Barack Hussein Obama has deliberately handed a get out of jail free card to illegal alien criminals.
In June, Obama bypassed Congress, issuing an unconstitutional executive order which requires Border Patrol agents to release illegal aliens who CLAIM to have: “come to the United States under the age of 16 and are not more than 30; lived in the U.S. for five straight years; are currently in school of have graduated high school; obtained a GED or been honorably discharged from the military; or have not been convicted of a felony or significant misdemeanor and are not a threat to public safety.”
And CLAIM is indeed the operative word in this, Obama’s latest betrayal of the American people, for upon being detained by ICE or Border Patrol agents, illegals need only assert their eligibility in order to be … Continue Reading:Border Patrol Whistle Blowers hand election to Romney, if he’ll take it!

Attorney General Eric Holder will meet with Fast and Furious nemesis Congressman Darrell Issa at 5:00 this afternoon in what could mark the end of the Congressional investigation of Barack Obama’s deadly gun smuggling scheme.
Last week, House Republican leaders at last agreed to schedule a vote on the Contempt of Congress charge Issa has long sought to bring against the Attorney General for 8 months of refusing to honor Congressional subpoenas. Deputy Attorney General James Cole quickly responded with a letter to House Government Reform Committee chair Issa, requesting a meeting to discuss ways of avoiding the vote. Issa agreed to meet with the Attorney General, but only if the Justice Department were willing to “…submit a serious proposal for how it intends to alter its refusal to produce critical documents subpoenaed by the Committee…”
One day later, on June 14th, Holder answered with a two page letter … Continue Reading:Fast and Furious investigation could end today, Holder go scot free
