Obamacare Is Working Great… In DC

DC Health Link has 20 private health insurance options to choose from, big companies like CareFirst and Kaiser Permanente. For 2017 small businesses -- like the United States Congress -- have 151 health plan options from Aetna, CareFirst, Kaiser and United. However, if you live in Virginia, Iowa, Tennessee or someplace else in flyover country you may be down to one or no choice in health insurance.

The House Obamacare Vote: First Step To Repeal Or Sham?

In our view all of our friends are correct; the American Health Care Act is “closer to full repeal than the old GOP bill was,” however, it is still “deplorable” for its insurance company subsidies and its sham defunding of Planned Parenthood.

Paul Ryan’s Betrayals Define Trump’s 100 Days

As well-intentioned and committed to his agenda as President Trump may be, he has failed to grasp that Paul Ryan is the author of these failures not because he is an inept Speaker, but because he is on the other side.

Tom Cotton Explains The Difference Between Republican, Democrat Use Of The ‘Nuclear Option’

Hrand Tookman, Daily Caller

“There’s a world of difference between Republicans using a tool that the Democrats first abused in 2013 to restore a 214 year old tradition that the Democrats first violated back in 2003,” Cotton said. “After this week, we’ll be back to where that 214 tradition was, which is that nominees should get an up or down vote.”

Priebus And Ryan Hijack Trump’s Twitter Account

It’s time for the President to change the password on his Twitter account and focus his efforts on fulfilling his promise to pass a bill that will actually do what Ryancare never will – lower premiums for the forgotten Americans the Freedom Caucus represents.

Sean Spicer Comments Show Priebus Is In Trouble

The change in tone in Sean Spicer's White House press briefing is a very important piece of trail craft that tells us Priebus’ influence is waning and that the Ryancare disaster has shown just how out of his depth the White House Chief of Staff is, given that his primary qualification for the job was his long home state relationship with Speaker Paul Ryan.

Midnight Rules Meeting Sets The Stage For Friday Obamacare Vote

Conservatives are getting next to nothing in the #Ryancare bill. It’s time for conservatives and for President Trump to take his own deal making advice and walk away from this disaster – there are better deals available and the price of giving illegal aliens taxpayer subsidized health care is way too high. We urge CHQ readers to contact House Freedom Caucus members to urge them to stand tall against bullying from establishment Republican Speaker Paul Ryan.

On #Ryancare Paul Ryan = Harry Reid

The House votes today on #Ryancare. In his desperation to maintain federal government control of the health insurance and health care markets establishment Republican Speaker Paul Ryan is turning more and more to the ugly corruption of the Democrats’ former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. We urge CHQ readers to contact their Representative to demand they vote NO on this corrupt disaster.

The Deal Breaker In #Ryancare

Much as we’d like President Trump to succeed, providing subsidized health care to illegal aliens is too steep a price for conservatives to pay to support the President in his optimistic push to use Speaker Paul Ryan’s disastrous Obamacare 2.0, Rinocare or #Ryancare bill to repeal and replace Obamacare.

Rand Paul and Ted Cruz are Right About #RyanCare

The only parts of Obamacare establishment Republicans want to repeal are the parts in the current House bill, they are perfectly happy to keep the regulations and other Big Government parts of Obamacare and have no intention of establishing a free market health care and health care insurance system.

Tell the House Freedom Caucus: Stand Tall Against #RYNOcare

#RYNOCare is destined for failure and we conservatives need to call and tweet House Freedom Caucus members today to tell them to stand firm against this bill, and that we’ve got their backs when the establishment comes after them!

Ryancare a Kamikaze Mission for Trump

Ryancare is a twofer for Ryan: He and his big government DC pals continue to control people’s lives by controlling the health care and health insurance markets and they screw Trump in the process.

The Coming #RINOcare War On Conservatives

American Action Network, a political action committee with ties to former Speaker John Boehner and current Speaker Paul Ryan, is airing a half-million dollars’ worth of television ads in the districts of 30 Freedom Caucus members urging them to support Paul Ryan's #RINOcare bill.

Ryan and Trump Acting Like Obama and Pelosi?

Eight years after Obama and Pelosi set out to pass Obamacare, Republican Speaker Paul Ryan and Republican President Donald Trump are embarked on similar path that, if it continues, will have disastrous political consequences for the Trump and Republican brands.

Cotton Emerging as Valued Trump Wingman in the Senate

Rebecca Berg, Real Clear Politics

Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton was the first person to float Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster as a candidate for National Security Adviser. His recommendation carried unusual sway: With Trump’s loyal wingman Jeff Sessions having retired from the Senate to run the Department of Justice, Cotton very well might be the administration’s new favorite senator.

Cotton fills Sessions' shoes on immigration

W. James Antle III, Washington Examiner

Jeff Sessions just left a leadership vacuum in the Senate on the issue of immigration, and Sen. Tom Cotton is trying to fill it. The Arkansas Republican and Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga., this week introduced a tough immigration bill that has hardliners cheering, and signaled that Cotton is likely to inherit the issue from Sessions, who was just confirmed as President Trump's attorney general.

Tom Cotton: Hillary Clinton’s Email Sealed The Fate Of An Iranian Scientist

We only know about Amiri because he was a pretty high profile case. We will never know how many small fry died under torture, were disappeared, or were executed because Hillary Clinton's emails gave enemy intelligence services just enough information to spot them.

CHQ Endorsed Rep. Ron DeSantis: Congress Must Reject the Iran Deal

CHQ endorsed Congressman and U.S. Senate candidate Ron DeSantis (R-FL) called for Congress to reject the Iran Deal in an OpEd that appeared in Time Magazine. In the OpEd, DeSantis cited the fact that the Iran Deal would provide Iran with $150 billion in unfrozen assets and Iran’s history as the world’s biggest state sponsor of terrorism as reasons to reject the deal. The OpEd was co-written with Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton, who like Ron DeSantis served in Operation Iraqi Freedom and was also endorsed by CHQ.

Cotton And Cruz Are Right: John Kerry Is Lying About The Iran Deal

It is noteworthy that one of the key elements of Senator Tom Cotton’s questioning of Secretary of State John Kerry about the Iran nuclear weapons deal supports quite directly Ted Cruz’s point that the financial terms of the deal will make the Obama Administration the leading “financier of radical Islamic terrorism.” And a top French diplomat has contradicted Kerry's dire predictions that if Congress votes down the deal the rest of the world will walk away from the effort to stymie Iran's nuclear weapons program.
