Democrats Own Obamacare

Thanks to the high-profile efforts of Senators Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and others, including the House majority, there is a stark contrast between the two major parties regarding Obamacare. One party is all-in for it, the other is indelibly etched in the public mind totally opposing it. Republicans would be foolish to change that, but even as Obamacare implodes, that's just what some are calling on them to do.

Budget & Spending

The national debt and the unrestrained growth of government spending are among the greatest threats to our nation’s future. Each year, the federal government spends more and more of your dollars on corporate handouts, pork-barrel projects, welfare programs and out of control entitlements. Unless something is done, interest payments on the debt alone will consume the entire budget by the year 2050. Taxpayers can no longer afford this. We need to cut spending and balance the budget before it’s too late.

CGI - Which Brought You Healthcare.gov, Also In Charge of Nearly $2 Billion in Sandy Relief

Perhaps we have a little better understanding of why victims of Hurricane Sandy haven't seen much of the $60 billion relief package approved by Congress.
