pertaining to the so-called Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.

Obamacare’s Massacre of the Innocents

David Catron, The American Spectator

If the “news” media showed one-tenth as much outrage over the deaths of nearly 22,000 poor and disabled Americans as they have shown this weekend over the well-deserved termination of one deep state corruptocrat, it would help the cause. But I guess the old maxim, “If it bleeds, it leads,” doesn’t apply to mere proles who quietly perish on purgatorial Medicaid waiting lists.

Adam Kinzinger: Empty Suit For Congress

Incumbent Congressman Adam Kinzinger is a prime example of what is wrong in Washington DC’s Republican establishment; out of touch, arrogant and thoroughly corrupted by DC’s insider lobbyist culture. We urge our friends in Illinois’ 16th District to vote for James Marter for Congress.

Democrats and RINOs Driving 2018 Omnibus Spending

We urge CHQ readers to call the toll-free Capitol Switchboard (1-866-220-0044) to ask for House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy. Tell Rep. McCarthy there should be no internet sales tax in the omnibus, no funding for Planned Parenthood, no Chuck Schumer earmark for the bloated New York – New Jersey tunnel, no insurance company Obamacare bailout and no Ex-Im bank cronyism in this year’s omnibus.

Obamacare Bailout: Dumb Policy, Dumber Politics

David Catron, The American Spectator

Beginning with the politics of these bailouts, it should be blindingly obvious to the Republicans that they have a serious enthusiasm gap to close, and that chasm is largely the result of their failure to honor the pledge to repeal Obamacare. That promise fueled Republican gains in the 2010 and 2014 midterms, and it would be an egregious understatement to say that the voters who believed it are extremely unhappy to find themselves still laboring under the yoke of the “Affordable Care Act.”

This Week The GOP Decides Who It Is

The omnibus spending bill, slated to be an eye-popping, Obama-level $1 trillion-plus has become a catchall for practically every spending priority of the Democrats, while calls from conservatives for spending discipline and conservative policy riders have been given the cold shoulder by the House and Senate leadership.

Can ‘Texas v. United States’ Set Us Free From Obamacare?

David Catron, The American Spectator

The case will almost certainly wind up before the U.S. Supreme Court, and it’s a good bet that the justices will finally banish the individual mandate to outer darkness in a 5-4 ruling. Will they fall in with the inseverability argument, and kill Obamacare in its entirety? Probably not, but it stands a far better chance of doing so than the “news” media has reported.

Blue States Vacillate on the Individual Mandate

David Catron, The American Spectator

Democrat windbags who run the blue states engaged in their usual fustian bluster when protesting the repeal of the individual mandate. If it were possible to get the truth out of them, they would probably admit they’re happy it’s gone. This will be the first election year since 2010 in which they won’t have to defend that abomination.

Outsider Mike Braun Makes Trade Issue In Indiana’s GOP Senate Primary

Conservative Republican and U.S. Senate candidate Mike Braun may be the first GOP senate candidate to embrace President Trump’s trade policies as a campaign issue in a Republican Primary by attacking his opponents in a new ad titled "Made in America."

Hatch Was Right About Obamacare’s Supporters

David Catron, The American Spectator

Obamacare supporters were the useful idiots who helped the Democrats foist the “Affordable Care Act” on an unwilling electorate. We have them to thank for skyrocketing health insurance premiums, a collapsing community hospital system, a shortage of primary care physicians, and a shorter life expectancy. In retrospect, it appears that Senator Hatch may have been pulling his punches during that AEI speech.

Sustainable Development: Code for Reorganizing Human Society

“The chaotic growth of cities will be replaced by a dynamic system of urban settlement…The region is formed by the economic interdependence of its development, from the industrial complex to the industrial region. The region has a single system of transportation, a centralized administration, and a united system of education and research.” Alexei Gutnov, The Ideal Communist City

Republican AGs: Obamcare Now Unconstitutional

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 eliminated the Obamacare penalty. Now that the penalty or "tax" has been removed from Obamacare, but the health insurance mandate remains, Obamacare is unconstitutional.  That is why the 18 Republican Attorneys General and two Republican Governors have sued to have Obamacare held unconstitutional.

Trump Releases Obamacare Hostages

David Catron, The American Spectator

Once the Trump administation's proposed rule is implemented, in 60 days, Americans will be able to buy health plans that conform to their own needs rather than the whims of Washington politicians. And, because this coverage won’t be loaded down with useless “benefits” that many consumers don’t want, their premiums will be lower than the price of a typical Obamacare plan.

Conservative Outsider Mike Braun Charging Ahead In Indiana Senate Race

In the lead-up to his third statewide media buy, businessman and conservative outsider Mike Braun called on his two leading opponents, Congressmen Todd Rokita and Luke Messer, to join with him and denounce the news that House Republicans are considering bringing back the pork-barrel projects known as earmarks.

The Conservative Cause Is Bigger Than Any Two Men

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Looking toward the 2018 primaries, the rupture of relations between Trump and Bannon has created a temporary leadership vacuum in the conservative – populist movement, so it is up to each of us to step up and do what we can to fill that vacuum; the need for top quality conservative candidates for every office is too great, our goals are too important, and our mission is too urgent for this battle of personalities to slow us, let alone to stop us.

Trump Drives Another Nail Into Obamacare’s Coffin

David Catron, The American Spectator

Obamacare is being prepared for burial one nail at a time. Trump's recently signed AHP regulation is just the latest to be hammered home. The “Affordable Care Act” will eventually join Prohibition, the Sedition Act, the National Maximum Speed law, and the McCain-Feingold campaign finance law in the graveyard of dumb Beltway ideas. It’s only necessary to keep our eyes on the prize.

Trump-onomics 101

The forgotten working folks who voted for Donald Trump are seeing the benefit of his economic policies in more hours at the factories and other businesses that employ them, higher wages and more job security in the outlook for new orders.

Trump Is Right About the Obamacare Insurance Mandate

David Catron, The American Spectator

If the Democrats ever get control of Congress and the White House again, they will reinstate the fine. And it will be far larger than the one that was just eliminated. This is one of the best reasons for conservative voters to show up at the polls in record numbers during the upcoming midterms. The effective repeal of the individual mandate is a poison pill that will eventually kill Obamacare. But, with the help of beefed up Republican majorities in Congress, President Trump can finish off whatever is left of the risibly titled “Affordable Care Act.” With that done, he will probably be unbeatable in 2020.

Trump Voters Winners In First 24 Hours Of Tax Reform

The Fake News media can kvetch about “trickle down” economics all they want, but $1,000 bonuses to Trump voters – frontline workers and managers – and companies announcing $15 an hour minimum wage is a huge political win for President Trump, and a big quality of life win for America’s hard-pressed working families.

The GOP Establishment Is About To Blow-Up The Pro-Growth Tax Plan

We urge CHQ readers to call their Representative and Senators through the Toll-Free Capitol Switchboard at 1-866-220-0044. Tell them to lower the corporate tax rate to 20 percent, keep the special rate for repatriation at 12 percent and to keep the focus of the tax reform bill on job creation and economic growth, not class warfare.

Senate Bill Kills Obamacare’s Taxes on the Poor

David Catron, The American Spectator

The Republicans, for all their myriad faults, seem to have finally grasped that they must respond to the will of the voters if they wish to maintain their majorities in Congress. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, reconciled with the House tax bill in conference and signed by President Trump into law is a good start toward regaining the trust of their constituents by doing what they were sent to Washington to do.
