Conservatives Launching GOP Primary Challenges

Shak Hill in VA-10 and State Representative Barry Moore in AL-2 are getting the attention of conservative handicappers in their campaigns against establishment congressional incumbents and we look forward to more principled limited government constitutional conservative candidates taking the fight to other “white flag” incumbents in other House districts.

FedUp PAC Poll: Conservatives Say McConnell Must Step Down

More than 97% of self-identified conservatives said that McConnell needs to be replaced by “someone who will fulfill Republican campaign promises.” Only about 2% agreed with McConnell that President Trump is demonstrating “excessive expectations.”

Your Mission During August Recess: Start The Debt Ceiling Battle

All presidents want a clean debt ceiling increase. The only way automatic debt ceiling increases will stop is if grassroots conservatives turn out and demand that spending be cut, as President Trump’s budget proposed, and that Congress implement debt reforms now.

There’s No ‘Bipartisan’ Solution to Fix Obamacare

Stephen Moore, The American Spectator

Republicans have infuriated conservative voters for failing to repeal Obamacare. That failure may at some point be forgiven by voters as a good faith effort against stiff resistance in Washington. What conservatives will never forgive is if the GOP works with Pelosi and Schumer to sanctify the Obamacare law as another permanent and unreformable entitlement.

Senate Republicans not ready to give up on Obamacare repeal

Robert King, Washington Examiner

Since the Senate failed last week to pass a "skinny" repeal bill, Senate GOP leadership has sent a clear message it is moving on to tax reform and bipartisan talks for a short-term Obamacare market stabilization bill. But some Republicans are not giving up on the years-long promise of repeal despite questions over whether the GOP conference can reach a consensus.

John McCain's Obamacare vote was indefensible

John Fund, National Review

Far from being a modern-day “profile in courage,” McCain’s vote against advancing Obamacare reform represents a complete reversal of the position he won his Senate election with last year. In what may prove to be one of the most important votes he has cast in his 35 years in Congress, he chose to operate like the standard-issue politicians he likes to rail against.

Mr. President, End The Congressional Obamacare Scam

It is time to make Congress live like the rest of us, and end their illegal “small business” Obamacare scam and their gold-plated subsidies and see how fast they run to repeal Obamacare and replace it with a free market system.

It's Time To Drain The Swamp In The GOP

We conservatives need to translate the grassroots rage over the betrayals of Republican elected officials into a national conversation about the future of the Republican Party and a wave of national activism to nominate and elect “Drain the Swamp” Republicans to the House of Representatives and the US Senate.

Ted Cruz: Voters will feel 'sense of betrayal' over Obamacare failure

Pete Kasperowicz, Washington Examiner

"I tell you this, if you stand up and campaign and say we're going to repeal Obamacare, and you vote for Obamacare, those are not consistent," Cruz said. "And the American people are entirely justified in saying, 'any politician who told me that and voted the other way didn't tell me the truth. They lied to me.'"

The Establishment GOP Is Committing Suicide By Lie

If the Capitol Hill Republican establishment can’t pass a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare that they already passed in 2015, then it is time for conservatives to recognize this is no longer a family disagreement, take the gloves off and declare war on those who reneged on their 2015 vote.

Trump Should Pocket Minor Healthcare Win and Move to Tax Reform Immediately

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Tax reform -- by jump-starting the economy -- will actually do much more for the health of the populace than any possible healthcare legislation, which would be a kludge anyway, even if better than Obamacare, which is the kludge of kludges, no one (including Obama himself, who lied about it incessantly) knowing what's in it to this day. With tax reform people will have more money to pay for everything -- including their health.

The Bizarre World Of The Republican Senate

It is a bizarre world indeed when perpetual maverick Senator John McCain saves the vote to repeal and replace Obamacare and also gives one of the more sensible analyses of why the process is a mess.

When Will The Republican Establishment Get A Grip On Reality?

Today’s Republican establishment is one of those online retailers whose slick website accepts your credit card for merchandise that is perpetually on back order – voters have paid in good faith, but their order never ships.

Voters want Obamacare repeal, but GOP may not be conservative enough to deliver

Mark Davis, Dallas Morning News

If President Donald Trump is not able to force a last-minute deal to get to 50 votes, his next wave of tweets should contain promises to hold rallies in the backyards of every senator who denied America relief from Obamacare, introducing fully financed primary opponents. The most motivated voters will be the millions who have been betrayed, and they will want laggard incumbents to be beaten not by Democrats but by a stronger brand of Republicans.

Why Mitch McConnell is making the Senate vote on doomed Obamacare repeal

David M. Drucker, Washington Examiner

Senate Republicans, though hesitant to criticize their colleagues, conceded that McConnell might be attempting to shake things loose by forcing the conference to vote on straight repeal legislation that most of them voted for in January of 2016, possibly as a means to force them to confront whether they favor repeal or not.

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.

Do Republicans retain any credibility if they fail to repeal Obamacare?

William Murchison, The American Spectator

Republicans are never entirely unhappy with half a loaf. They think on how much less than half they could have gotten. The notion of wrestling away the whole loaf and digesting it happily in front of the Democrats inspires comparatively few Republicans. They’d rather deal — a preference that comes naturally to the business, front-office types who make the party their home.

The Poltroon Party Gets a Reprieve on Obamacare Repeal

David Catron, The American Spectator

Americans will forgive a lot from our politicians, but we will not reward cowardice. If the Republicans arrive at November of 2018 having done nothing about Obamacare, the result will make them nostalgic for the “good old days of 2006 and 2008.” The GOP has majorities in both houses of Congress and a President with a pen in his hand. There are no excuses left. They must pass some version of BCRA or be written off by the voters as the Poltroon Party.
