  • (Senator)Barrasso: Obamacare Deductibles So High, No One Gets to Use the Insurance

    The Department of Health and Human Services insists that the Affordable Care Act not only expanded health insurance to many more Americans, but it also "made everyone's insurance better." But some Republicans are asking, what good is the health insurance if sky-high deductibles mean you never get to use it? The Democrats' Affordable Care Act is a mandate -- "not to get care, but to get coverage," Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) said on Tuesday. "And many people are finding the coverage is not at all of value to them because they can't get care. Either...their doctors don't take Obamacare or...
  • Republicans, fearing congressional end-run, warn Obama ahead of climate talks

    Capitol Hill Republicans are aiming to take the air out of President Obama's push for a global climate deal at next week's international summit in Paris, warning they will block vital funding if he tries to circumvent Congress. Obama and other world leaders are charging ahead with the two-week U.N. conference starting Monday, under heightened security in the wake of the Paris terror attacks. At a press conference alongside French President Francois Hollande, Obama cast the climate summit as a global statement of solidarity. "What a powerful rebuke to the terrorists it will be when the world stands as one...

    Demands accountability of the Obama Administration through legislation cracking down on sanctuary cities, criminal illegal aliens Watch the video WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) today delivered a speech on the Senate floor citing the Obama Administration’s persistent negligence of immigration law enforcement and bolstering the Stop Sanctuary Policies and Protect Americans Act (S. 2146), of which he is a lead cosponsor, as a small step in the right direction. In addition to stripping certain federal funds from sanctuary jurisdictions, the legislation also incorporates critical elements of Kate’s Law, which Sen. Cruz introduced earlier this year, by imposing...

    The repeal of ObamaCare is the priority of the Republican party, Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) said on Sunday. There will be a vote on repeal. The president, in the White House, will veto that, he said of the symbolic gesture offered by GOP lawmakers still unsatisfied with the healthcare legislation. However, Barrasso told NBCs Chuck Todd on Meet the Press that there would also be other bills that strike at other parts of the Affordable Care Act some of which have gained bipartisan support including a repeal of the medical device tax and the employer mandate. There is...

The senator also said he believes the nation will go over the cliff, with the deadline just nine days away. Barrasso said he thinks Obama is eager to blame...

    President Obamas pick to replace Gary F. Locke as commerce secretary faces an uphill Senate confirmation battle. Even before the White House handed in the name of John Bryson for the job, Senate Republicans had vowed to block any nominee over administration foot-dragging on free-trade agreements. The selection of this particular leftist for a business-outreach post is rallying the opposition. I find Mr Bryson unacceptable as secretary of commerce for the United States, and I will work in opposition to his conformation, said Sen. John Barrasso, vice chairman of the Republican Conference, to The Washington Times. Mr. Bryson co-founded the...

    A top Senate Republican said on Tuesday he would fight President Barack Obama's choice for commerce secretary, former energy executive John Bryson, whom he called an "environmental extremist." "The president has appointed someone who is going to make it harder and more expensive for the private sector to create jobs," said Senator John Barrasso, a member of the Senate Republican leadership. "Instead of appointing an economic leader, he has appointed an environmental extremist," Barrasso said. He cited Bryson's support for climate change legislation that failed to clear the Senate and his role in the founding of the National Resource Defense...

    Republican Sen. John Barrasso of Wyoming introduced legislation Monday afternoon that would prohibit federal agencies from regulating greenhouse gases without a direct mandate from Congress. The Defending Americas Affordable Energy and Jobs Act seeks to stop bureaucracies from unilaterally passing economically unsound regulations for the sole purpose of addressing climate change. It has seven co-sponsors, including Republican Sens. Mike Enzi of Wyoming, James Inhofe of Oklahoma and John Thune of South Dakota. Its time for the administration to face the facts: Americans rejected cap and trade because they know it means higher energy prices and lost jobs, said Barrasso in...

    Senator John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) is introducing his Climate Change Pre-emption bill, an initiative that would prevent the EPA and other such agencies from unilaterally regulating greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions without explicit Congressional Authorization. The Supreme Courts ill-advised decision in Massachusetts v. Environmental Protection Agency (2007) gave the EPA a mandate to issue an endangerment finding on CO2 and related GHG. Since this finding was issued in December 2009, the EPA has expanded its influence by leaps and bounds, regulating everything from hospitals to cars based on their tenuous relation to man-made global warming.

    As we approach the November elections we need to start contemplating our fight for control of GOP leadership posts. After all, what good is a Republican Majority if it is lead by governing class statists? Until recently most of the Senate leadership posts were held by non-conservatives. McConnel is Minority Leader, Kyle is Whip, Lamar Alexander is Conference Chairman, and Murkowski was Conference Vice Chair. Now that traitor Murkowski was forced out of her leadership position it is imperative that we replace her with a true conservative. Roll Call is reporting welcome news that John Barrasso will run for Conference...

    The only two U.S. Senator physicians have released a blistering oversight report examining the first 100 days of Obamacare implementation. Sens. Tom Coburn, M.D. (R-Okla.) and John Barrasso, M.D. (R-Wyo.) offer their expert, detailed assessment of the problems with the new law and the resulting disastrous consequences. As supporters of cost-effective, common-sense health reform, but staunch opponents of the legislation that passed Congress earlier this year, this report presents the American people with a check-up about the side effects and the implications of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act as it begins to be implemented, Coburn and Barrasso said...

    The fight to shape perceptions of President Obamas health care overhaul is still in the early stages, but on Wednesday two Republican senators will fire a salvo when they release a 32-page report arguing that the legislation is only exacerbating skyrocketing prices and will cause nearly 100 million Americans to lose their employer-based insurance. The passage of the new law is a lost historic opportunity, says the report, authored by staff for Sen. Tom Coburn, Oklahoma Republican, and Sen. John Barrasso, Wyoming Republican. The report, titled Bad Medicine, comes as the Obama administration is accelerating a public relations push to...

    Republicans have had little hesitation in pointing out the stagnant job-creation numbers during the Obama administration, but to be fair, theyre also predicting a big hiring boom, too. Unfortunately, that hiring boom would come at the IRS, which is tasked with enforcing the individual mandate in ObamaCare and in determining what kind of medical coverage qualifies. The Obama administration denies that it will hire more IRS agents, while HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius predicts no more than a couple of hundred extra agents. With the CBO estimating new costs to the IRS between five and ten billion dollars over the next...

Is al-Qaida recruiting polar bears? One wouldn't think that the increasing polar bear population and the increasing rate of recidivism of former Guantanamo detainees released into the wild were related, but they are. At the urging of Al Gore, the administration is signing on to a plan to task vital intelligence assets to protect not the people of the United States, but the environment. The program, shot down by President Bush,...
