Did Senator Lindsey Graham Finally Get One Right?

If Senator Graham can cajole his buddy John McCain into voting for his bill it just might allow Republicans to, at least part way, make good on their eight-year pledge to repeal and replace Obamacare.

Conservatives Giving Senate GOP One Last Chance On Obamacare Repeal

This is the last chance Capitol Hill’s establishment Republicans have to get right with the GOP’s conservative majority. If this Obamacare repeal bill fails then it will be obvious to all that the only sure path to repeal Obamacare, reform the tax code, rebuild our economy and build the border wall lies through the Republican Primary Elections.

Cruz Endorses Latest Senate Obamacare Repeal, So Do We

The latest Senate Obamacare repeal bill is, given the weak-kneed GOP leadership, as close to repeal as we're going to get. Ultimately, the final answer to repealing Obamacare and restoring a free market in health insurance is to be found in only one place: The Republican primary elections.

Conservatives Got Aggressive And McConnell Blinked

The problem in the Senate Republican Conference is Mitch McConnell’s unwillingness to actually pursue conservative alternatives to Obamacare. We've won one round, now it's time for conservatives to hang tough and force McConnell to move the Consumer Freedom Option.

McConnell Refuses To Work With Conservatives On Obamacare Replacement

We urge CHQ readers to call Senator McConnell’s office (the Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) to tell him you want a vote on the Consumer Freedom Option. Tell him it’s time for Senate Republicans to let the American people know whether they stand with consumers who want choice and freedom or with the Democrats and their abusive and intrusive Obamcare healthcare mandates.

Get America Out Of The Paris Climate Agreement NOW!

We urge CHQ readers to contact the White House through this link. Tell the President that conservatives agreed with him during the campaign – Obama’s Paris climate deal is a job killer and a waste of our tax dollars. It’s time to put America, and American jobs, first and get us out of this disaster.

Tax Reduction and Reform: President Trump Goes After The Swamp

Establishment frets: Freedom Caucus and Club for Growth in cahoots

Rachael Bade, Politico

Critics say the Club's endorsements appear to go beyond the typical support of outside groups for like-minded candidates that one would expect, to something approaching an unholy coordination between a group of lawmakers and a big-spending conservative organization. There's no daylight between the candidates the groups have gotten behind: All Club-backed House contenders this year are members of, or endorsed by, the Freedom Caucus.

Are Conservatives Coming Around To Trump?

CHQ's endorsed candidate for the open Senate seat in Florida, Congressman Ron DeSantis, yesterday issued a strong statement calling for Republican unity behind Donald Trump. In a state that fielded two of Trump's competitors in the GOP primaries DeSantis' statement took some guts, especially given that one of his earliest and biggest backers - the Club for Growth - have been leaders of the #NeverTrump movement.

Right and Left Coming Together to Defeat Corrupt Crony Ex-Im Bank

The establishment media has largely ignored the story, but there is an important trend developing in national politics and policy debates; the emergence of more than occasional alliances of conservative and liberal populists. The latest Right-Left populist policy alliance to emerge is between conservative and liberal opponents of the Export-Import Bank reauthorization, and yesterday afternoon our conservative friends at The Club for Growth announced the release of a TV ad aimed at Florida Democrats.

The Club for Growth couldn’t find a presidential candidate to love in 2008 and 2012. But 2016 may be different.

Marco Rubio — traveled to The Breakers resort here this weekend to make their pitches to 200 of the group’s biggest donors.
