Graham said: * Under the CLASS Act, the government can begin collecting long-term care ‘insurance' premiums in 2011. * The CLASS...

    Will Republicans take the pledge? I mean the Pledge to repeal ObamaCare. The Independent Women’s Voice is promoting the pledge. They are asking members of Congress and candidates for Congress to sign the pledge. So, who, or what, is the Independent Women’s Voice?

IWV is the sister organization of the Independent Women’s Forum. Like IWF, IWV is dedicated to promoting limited government, free markets, and personal responsibility. IWV believes that too often the media assumes that all women are represented...
