Thanks to your phone calls, letters, emails, and rants on talk radio; John Boehner had a change of heart and the House of Representatives easily passed a continuing resolution that strips Obamacare of all funding on Friday, the bill now heads to the U.S. Senate where many are eager to restore the flow of dollars to President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul.
According to Ted Cruz, “The fight to save America from Obamacare is just beginning — it may well go back and forth from the House and Senate several times — and a united Republican front means that Harry Reid and the President cannot ignore the American people”.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid will move to strike out the Obamacare defunding language after getting the 60 votes needed to limit debate
Senate Conservatives Fund Executive Director Matt Hoskins called directly on Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to get the 41 votes required to defeat cloture on “Harry Reid’s plan to fund Obamacare.”
Now it is up to us to TAKE ACTION.
Let’s give Mitch McConnell the opportunity to finally use his position in the Senate to work for us.
Call his office at (202) 224-2541 and tell him to lead the Republicans to filibuster Harry Reid’s plan to fund Obamacare. Republicans like to say they are against Obamacare, but now is the time to prove it.

What: Movie showing: They Come to America part 2 only, Dennis M. Lynch producer
This is a free showing.
DML's first film is a riveting, non-partisan doc that exposes the true costs both human and financial. It's a film the open-borders advocates don't want you to see because it tells both sides of the issue. "Amazing film." - Andrew Wilkow, THE BLAZE
The most action-packed, eye-opening documentary ever made about illegal immigration has many people saying it's the film that can KILL the IMMIGRATION BILL. But it's not in theaters because Hollywood and the mainstream media reject Dennis Michael Lynch (DML). "It's a must-see." - Sean Hannity, FOX NEWS

Developer Matt Toebben and others opposed to tolls on the bridge have started shopping a proposal to rid Kentucky of its 32.3 cent per gallon gas tax in favor of increasing the state sales tax from 6 cents per dollar to 7 cents. That would generate 42 percent more for road improvements, Toebben said, while reducing the average price per gallon by 10 cents.
This would avoid tolling the Brent Spence Bridge, an idea opposed by the entire 13-person Northern Kentucky General Assembly delegation and many residents.
Toebben has garnered support of some business leaders and tea party members who hope to find a sponsor for a bill in the 2014 General Assembly session (Sales tax, not tolls, for Brent Spence, 2013).
By raising the sales tax one percent and extending it to include gasoline, Toebben estimates his proposal would increase state sales tax revenue from $3 billion to $4.2 billion annually. Subtracting the $838 million lost in annual revenue by the elimination of the gas tax, the state would net an additional $350 million under the sales tax structure to put toward transportation, Toebben said. Officials with the state haven’t studied the proposal but said the calculations seem valid (Sales tax, not tolls, for Brent Spence, 2013).

Gov. Steve Beshear said he plans to implement a controversial revision of science education despite a legislative committee’s rejection of it Wednesday.
The Next Generation Science Standards, developed by a coalition of 26 states during the past two years, will update teachings on most scientific subjects, including evolution and climate change.
The new teachings have come under fire in recent months from conservative groups who say they lack academic rigor, and the state’s Administrative Regulation Review Subcommittee rebuked the changes 5-1 with one member passing.
- Dictator Beshear ignores the legislative committee’s decision to vote against Common Core Standards
- Will Kentucky settle for uneven opportunities in science for its children?
- Mitch Town Hall- Like the game Where's Waldo?....Where's Mitch?
- Kenton Tea/Empower-U combined meeting
