Welcome Freshman (Conservative) Class!





There's a new gang in town, the Freshman Class of 2015, and do they have plans for you!

They're not completely stupid, of course...

"Conservatives Realize Their ‘Fix’ To Obamacare Would Actually Make Things Much Worse."

Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) at a press conference criticizing the Affordable Care Act

"Now that the incoming Congress ensures a GOP majority in both chambers, the Republican Party is turning its attention back to potential 'fixes' to President Obama’s health reform law. This week, in what represents the first major bill of the 114th Congress, the House is scheduled to take up legislation that world redefine the definition of a 'full-time employee' under the law to a worker putting in 40 hours per week instead of 30 hours per week.

"It’s a policy change that Republicans have long championed, and was quickly identified as one of the party’s top priorities after the 2014 midterm elections. But now that Congressional approval may be in sight, some conservatives are having second thoughts. As the New York Times reports, the GOP is encountering some unexpected resistance to the 40-hour change from the right.

"The policy question centers on Obamacare’s employer mandate, which requires large companies to extend health care to at least 95 percent of their full-time workers. The law currently includes employees working at least 30 hours each week in that category. Over the past several years, Obamacare opponents have claimed that the 30-hour threshold 'redefines full-time' in a way that harms American workers.


"'The 30-hour full-time employee definition fundamentally alters more than 40 years of federal policy that considered ‘full-time’ to be a 40-hour work week,' House Republicans say on their website, arguing that service sector employees who work between 30 and 40 hours will be in danger of having their hours cut so their employers can avoid offering them insurance...'"

But it's out with old, and in with the new...



"New," like this guy...



...and this guy:



And one of their rising stars...



But new or not, they're all in Washington to serve the People...



Because they're busy little bees...



With an intelligent and active constituency...



So like we said, out with the old and in with the new!


********************


We can expect more of the same from this year's Republicans, because they're liars in politicians' clothing.

Remember the great Bush years?  We are about to relive those years - in spades.

Because when you either voted for these class warfare clowns - or stayed at home - you allowed your country to be taken over by the biggest criminal cartel in history.

Isn't it time to criminalize Conservatism? (Joyce, Jnr.)
