The price of freedom is eternal vigilance - Thomas Jefferson
The United States is a republic where We the People choose representatives to govern us and this land. It is our responsibility to become educated about and engaged in the political process.
We must influence elections, hold elected officials accountable and fight for our core values: Fiscal Responsibility, Constitutionally Limited Government and Free Markets. Organized by dedicated volunteers and maintained by an active membership, we ask YOU to GET INFORMED and GET ACTIVE.
On April 15, 2009 citizens converged at the corner of Orange and Redlands Blvd in downtown Redlands. With flags flying and signs waving we united to make our voice heard. The tea party movement and the Redlands Tea Party Patriots continue to grow in numbers and strength. Join us and volunteer today. To become a member click on the 'contact us' tab above.
Welcome to the Redlands Tea Party
H.R. 2 will be considered on the House floor on Wednesday, January 19, 2011, under a closed rule. The rule provides for seven hours of debate with one motion to recommit. Majority Leader Cantor (R-VA) introduced H.R. 2 on January 5, 2011.
H.R. 2 would repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010, and Title I and subtitle B of Title II of the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010.
The legislative digest for the job-killing health care law can be found here.
According to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), H.R. 2 would prevent $770 billion in tax increases and cut spending by $540 billion.
ObamaCare was designed to hide hundreds of billions of dollars in spending from the scorekeepers at the CBO. Below is a list of some of these items:
· Implementation Costs: CBO did not count the $115 billion needed to implement the law, such as hiring more government employees or IRS agents.
· Double Counting: More than $500 billion in double-counting Social Security payroll taxes and Medicare cuts.
· CLASS Premiums: CBO counted $70 billion in premiums from CLASS (the long-term care program Sen. Conrad called a “ponzi” scheme) but not the liabilities
· 10 years of Taxes/6 years of Spending: The CBO score of ObamaCare accounted for the deficit impact for 10 years of tax increases used to offset only six years of spending increases.
