    Isabella Marie Sammartano With deep sadness we mourn the sudden passing of our dear daughter Isabella (Bella) Sammartano, age 20, who succumbed to her battle with addiction and died from a heroin overdose in our home on March 24, 2017. Showing strength, determination, and a love for life, Bella lived clean for the last 16 months before her sudden relapse last week, succumbing to this terrible disease, now an epidemic and taking far too many of our loved ones from us every day. Bella will be remembered as intelligent and full of love, conviction, empathy, and with a sense of...

  • Repeal Obamacare and replace with freedom. Change House and Senate rules to do so if necessary!

    "Prior to this year, the House voted to repeal Obamacare more than 50 times ---when it was clear that President Obama would veto the bill. The problem we are facing is that some of the people who voted for repeal 50 times will not vote for repeal when it counts, when it is "our moment in time," with Republicans in control of Congress and the presidency." --Rep Dave Brat "This has been my complaint since before Obamacare became law.

    I am sick of the lies repeated about the House Freedom Caucus. The HFC are the good guys, and the closest we have in the House to Tea Party. They fly below the radar because they are universally hated by the swamp and GOPe leadership, so as to dodge the publically threatened (by GOPe leadership) retaliation. They don't rush to the microphones, but in fact keep their membership list secret. They don't rally around anything unless 80% of their members support it, then hang together. They are NOT anti Trump, and anyone who says that is lying to you. Ask...

    Dear President Trump, I will gladly contribute to your campaign directly. I will not support the Republican Party. This party is full of establishment hacks lead by a Speaker who in no way supports you. The republican healthcare bill would have hurt millions and especially late boomers. I have heard republicans says that healthcare is a privilege. As long as they are okay with pricing people out of the market, I am not okay with them. Healthcare, drug prices, premiums and deductibles must come way down. I am in the individual market - we must have associations to distribute risk...

    Some of us, forum posters, conservative columnists, and commentators, were not thrilled with having Donald J. Trump as the GOP nominee. We thought his statements were reckless and stupid. And we didn't trust him or believe him when he talked conservative principles. After all, he'd changed parties several times over the years. When the election came around, some people supposedly on our side actually voted for Hillary. I couldn't do that, of course. I couldn't vote for any Democrat. I thought of voting for Gary Johnson. He said he believed in a strong military. But then he said that he wanted to cut the...

    A no vote on RYANcare/GOPcare is a vote FOR constitutional government. Obamacare, RYANcare, RINOcare, GOPcare, Hillarycare, Trumpcare or ANY form of federal government mandated health care package is UNCONSTITUTIONAL! The constitution clearly reserves health care and health care insurance to the states and the PEOPLE! The founders did not establish the federal government to be a charity or to "care for" the personal needs of the citizens. The founders never intended to create a welfare state! The constitution was intended to severely RESTRICT the powers of the federal government and to leave most governing powers to the states and the...

    I see all the articles and news stories about the baseless Trump/Russian scandal and I decided to step back. For one thing, Trump would not need Russians to hack Hillary's illegal (yes, illegal) e-mail server. Trump is a man of extraordinary means and wealth. He could hire an American to do the job instead of outsourcing to the Russians. He is supposed to be an xenophobe, right? The second thing is that Hillary is much more intimate with Russians. Somehow she managed to sell a large amount of American uranium to the Russians. We know what uranium is right? That's...

    Now that a couple of left-wing ideologues on the bench have ruled against President Trump's second, “bullet-proof” immigration order, it is time to put into force a law which is on the books and which will have practically the same effect. Several commentators have pointed out the the U.S. is not enforcing the law under which the U.S. can stop issuing visas to citizens of countries which refuse to take back their deportable aliens. “All [President] Trump would have to do is have his Homeland Security Department secretary issue an official notification about those countries, and the State Department would...

    A question I often ask myself is why is the left so intractable and unwilling to budge on any point of contention. Everything we hear from the left is generally put forth as a talking point and one messenger on the left sounds exactly the same as the next. The logical next question is, "do you actually listen you yourselves, and do you not see (hear) the obvious disconnect your words have with reality. We are the party of tolerance, except when conservatives are concerned, we can't tolerate anything from you. Everything, everything they say is mutually exclusive. So I...

    That's 'not' a normal procedure. Such person(s) incidentally being picked up under legal surveillance of foreign entities or other investigations are basically 'thrown away' not unmasked and transcripts being saved of it and spread about the intelligence community. That's apparently what happened to Trump campaign/transition people. The media obviously doesn't want to ask those questions and instead want to focused on the fact that it was 'legal' incidental communications being picked up. So what that it was 'legal' and I have my doubts about that but even if it was appropriately legal, why was such information spread about? Sounds more...

    "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people." I don't see power over health care or insurance or anything like that being delegated to the federal government anywhere in the constitution, so it is reserved to the states and the people per the tenth amendment. The federal government cannot dictate who or what must be covered or at what price or any other terms or requirements for private health care insurance or coverage.

    I can understand a government case per the 16th amendment for a tax deduction (not a tax credit) extended to individuals and small business to offset the cost of health care premiums, however, I see no constitutional authority for the federal government to dictate to private insurance providers that they MUST cover preexisting conditions or that they MUST charge a 30% (or whatever) surcharge if a customer lets his policy lapse and then wants to sign up again later. Whether these are "good ideas" or not, where is the constitutional authority?
