Pro-amnesty Republicans push Obamacare tactics on immigration costs | WashingtonExaminer.com

Pro-amnesty Republicans push Obamacare tactics on immigration costs | WashingtonExaminer.com | Tea Party | Scoop.it
Pro-amnesty Republicans are pushing an Associated Press story reporting that Schumer-Rubio immigration bill would “boost Social Security.” From the AP: An analysis by the Social Security Administration says a bipartisan immigration bill pending in...
Jenny Beth Martin's insight:

OF NOTE: This is the exact same tactic the Obama administration used when they tried to sell Obamacare to the American people. First, for programs like the now defunct CLASS Act, the bill banked revenues for a program that would not pay out any benefits for years to come. Obamacare also delayed implementation of the health exchange subsidies so that the full cost would not be realized until it was outside the Congressional Budget Office’s ten-year budget window. In just two years, the true cots of Obamacare have already almost doubled.

Redlands City Council meeting forum for Tea Party/cyclist feud

Redlands City Council meeting forum for Tea Party/cyclist feud | Tea Party | Scoop.it
Eight new squad cars highlighted a major upgrade to the Redlands Police Department that was approved by City Council on Tuesday night.
Jenny Beth Martin's insight:

Keep holding them accountable: 

OF NOTE: Marilyn Snyder unrolled an approximately 15-foot sheet of paper with signatures and a pledge.  "We the people are taxed enough already," the pledge began. 

 

Bathroom locks, underpass murals and a new fire engine are too much during this fiscal crunch, she said. Snyder also singled out City Manager N. Enrique Martinez for taking grants from the billion dollars in debt state to purchase solar powered trash compactors that have been installed downtown.

The Right and Immigration

The Right and Immigration | Tea Party | Scoop.it
Three signs that right-wing opposition to immigration reform may be congealing.
Jenny Beth Martin's insight:

OF NOTE: Number two, Jenny Beth Martin, the big national tea party leader, seems to havecome out against the bill, albeit mainly on process objection rather than substantive ones. Now I don't know whether Jenny Beth Martin moves mountains, but if her position is not "just" her but a reflection of a congealing conventional wisdom amongst the tea set, then that could matter.

Tea Party Patriots co-founder Jenny Beth Martin uses “Hunger Games” analogy to describe the state of America today

Tea Party Patriots co-founder Jenny Beth Martin uses “Hunger Games” analogy to describe the state of America today | Tea Party | Scoop.it
Jenny Beth Martin's insight:

OF NOTE: 

In “The Hunger Games,” the fictional country of Panem, which formed from a post-apoplectic North America, is divided into 14 regions. Martin compared Wall Street and K Street to Panem’s capital region, which in the novels is depicted as totalitarian and far removed from reality.

“Crony, corrupted deals are standard operating procedures,” Martin said of the respective capitols.
