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.

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.

Repeal Obamacare by Reenacting the 2016 Repeal Bill Obama Vetoed

Joseph E. Schmitz, Newsmax

It’s time for Congress to reenact the 2016 Obamacare Repeal Act. Whatever else Congress might enact to "replace" Obamacare can wait. The repeal of Obamacare is long overdue, "and it can’t come a day too soon."

Will McConnell Produce On Promise To Lower Health Care Costs?

There is a reason Big Pharma stocks, insurance stocks, and hospital stocks have gone up over the last two weeks. Because very little is changing when it comes to bringing down the cost of health care in this legislation.

Time for Conservatives to Call Talk Radio

It’s time to call talk radio and your Senators.  Tell your Senators and your favorite talk radio show host that they need to get behind the Cruz amendment to the Senate health care bill.

Conservatives Oppose McConnell’s Obamacare Bill

Mitch McConnell’s Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017 is a Band-Aid when an amputation is needed. This is not what Congress has promised the American people and will only pave the way for a government-run, single payer system that Republicans will own. The Senate should, simply put, start over.

Senate Obamacare Repeal Or Just Cosmetic Surgery?

The Capitol Switchboard is (1-866-220-0044) we urge you to call your Senators, tell them the bill as described in news reports is at best cosmetic surgery, not the full repeal of Obamacare that Mitch McConnell and the Senate Republican leadership promised.

Do Nothing Congress Creating Deadly Enthusiasm Gap For GOP

While President Trump holds a 47 percent approval rating, at 29 percent Speaker Paul Ryan's abysmal approval rating is beginning to drag down the whole GOP, and especially its establishment candidates.

Trump tries to lead on Obamacare

W. James Antle III, Washington Examiner

Trump is trying to go on the offense, pointing to rising health insurance premiums and insurers exiting the Obamacare exchanges as the enrollee population hasn't been young and healthy enough. He is also hoping Senate Republicans help him play defense, amending the healthcare bill to neutralize some of the top Democratic talking points against it.

House Freedom Caucus To Ryan: Cancel August Recess

We agree with our friends in the Freedom Caucus; it’s time to go big on tax reform, and to do that Congress must work through the August recess to get a bill on the President’s desk.

Why can't House repeal Obamacare? Because a lot of Republicans don't want to

Byron York, Washington Examiner

The centrists — a number of Republicans refer to them as "the mods," for moderates — appear to be moving the goalposts, even as the conservatives offer concessions. Conservatives suspect the centrists were perfectly happy for conservatives to take the blame for killing the first bill, but now are showing their true colors by rejecting compromise on the second version. Whatever the circumstances, they don't want to vote to repeal Obamacare.

ObamaCare Repeal Needs a Direction

Bobby Jindal, Wall Street Journal

Can’t health-care reform increase coverage and lower costs, just as the beer commercials once promised great taste and lower calories? Yes—but as we have seen, prioritizing coverage expansion results in higher costs and lower quality. Focusing on lowering costs is the way to increase coverage in a meaningful and sustainable way.

FedUp PAC Poll: Trump Speech a Home Run with Conservatives

Conservatives are impressed and encouraged by President Trump’s first speech to Congress, according to a poll by FedUp PAC. President Trump’s speech addressed the priority issues for conservatives, with 92% saying that the President covered issues very important to them.

Ted Cruz: Repealing Obamacare Isn't Complicated

Ted Cruz is right, and he has proven once again that he is the one guy on Capitol Hill conservatives can trust to always keep his word. Passing a full repeal of Obamacare and sending the bill to the President’s desk as Republicans promised during the 2014 midterm election isn’t complicated. All it takes is a credible argument and a spine, both of which are in short supply in the establishment Republican "leadership."

Rubio Tries to Distract Tea Party

Alex Leary, Tampa Bay Times

Rubio spent mere seconds on his amnesty stance at the Tea Party Caucus and focused on Obamacare instead.


We think it is absolutely critical that each and every Senator who has already signed Mike Lee's letter calling for the defunding of Obamacare stay strong and not bow to pressure from Mitch McConnell and the Senate GOP leadership.  But Lee needs more signers, so you can join the fight by calling your Senators to urge them to sign Mike Lee's letter committing to defund Obamacare today. The Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044. Your target lists are at the end of this article.
