I am proudly Pro-Life. I believe all life is sacred and as Speaker I promoted pro-life policies and helped reverse the pro-abortion state policies Democrats had put in place for decades. In the Senate, I will promote a culture of life and champion the appointment of qualified pro-life judges.

On October 9, Republican U.S. Senate candidate in Iowa, Joni Ernst, released the following statement in response to recent reports that three health insurance carriers in Iowa will be forced to raise insurance premiums for thousands of Iowans on January 1, 2015 in order to meet rising health care costs under the Affordable Care Act:

When President Obama was selling ObamaCare in 2009, one of the many false promises he made was that taxpayers would not be forced to pay for abortions under the law. But now, for the first time in American history, Uncle Sam is in the abortion business. The law contains a loophole that is forcing taxpayers to pay for ending innocent life. The law must be fully repealed, but in the meantime, that loophole must be closed.
This week, Americans for Limited Government reported that more than 250,000 Virginians will lose their health insurance due to Obamacare. PreferredOne, the health insurance company that covers 60% of the policies in the state’s Obamacare exchange, is leaving the state. Why?

Despite a promise President Obama made to lawmakers and the American public in a special joint session of Congress on healthcare reform that “under our plan, no federal dollars will be used to fund abortion” a new report released by the non-partisan Government Accountability Office (GAO) today documents massive new public funding of abortion in the President’s healthcare law.
Whether we’re talking about President Barack Obama’s threats to take executive action on immigration, the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) blatant executive regulatory overreach, or Health and Human Services (HHS) cherry-picking which ObamaCare provisions to enforce and which to delay – this president and his administration have a very bad habit of ignoring the law and the Constitution.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) gave a powerful keynote speech before a crowd of conservatives at the Defending The American Dream convention in Dallas on Saturday.

The following has been reprinted from the Congressional Prayer Caucus. It outlines the latest revisions in Obamacare over the HHS abortion, sterilization, and contraception mandate being forced upon Christian business owners, and Christian institutions. The abortion mandate was never in the original legislation but was added through regulations by the disgraced former Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius, a rabid pro-abortion zealot.
The Obama Administration clearly has no concern about religious liberty or the First Amendment. It only cares about paying off its abortion industry donors by forcing all Americans to subsidize the killing of unborn babies.
Rob Maness, a retired Air Force Colonel, is running against Democrat Senator Mary Landrieu. On Friday, he filed a complaint against Landrieu alleging that she doesn’t have legal residency in Louisiana.
