The counting of absentee ballots is over in Alaska and Dan Sullivan has defeated incumbent liberal Sen. Mark Begich to be the next U.S. Senator from that state. Begich was a lock-step liberal who supported Obama’s radical agenda. Sullivan had an 8,000 vote lead in last week’s election, but more than 40,000 absentee votes had not yet been counted.

“This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score the mandate as taxes. If CBO scored the mandate as taxes, the bill dies. So it was written to do that. In terms of risk related subsidies, if you had a law which made explicit that healthy people pay in and sick people get money it would not have passed. Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical to get the thing to pass.”
I think it’s a little disingenuous at this point. He has had six years to work with Republicans and now he is offering a hand and willing to sit down and work with Senator McConnell and our other soon-to-be colleagues and again, six years we’ve have had that opportunity to work together and move America in the right direction but he has been so disengaged and not willing to work with Republicans or even some members of his own party.
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:
Kellyann Conway’s polling group has found that Congressman Tom Cotton (R-AR) is now seven points ahead of liberal Senator Mark Pryor (D-AR). The poll has Cotton at 48% to 41% of likely voters – just 30 days away from the mid-term election. Cotton is leading among independents by 21 points and women by 4 points.
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? They claim that it’s not administratively or financially sustainable. In other words, they would go broke if they continued to deal with Obamacare.
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.
