For the benefit of debate, lets assume that when the Obama Administration and radicals in Congress hired 16,000 new IRS agents, authorized huge tax increases, put more power in the hands of the federal bureaucracy and cut half-a-billion from Medicare it was for the noble objective of providing more Americans with better access to quality health care.

A huge thank you to the thousands of you that took action to reform Tennessees schools.
This journey to get union bosses out of the classroom and give more local control to teachers, families and taxpayers has been difficult. There were cliffhanger votes in committee, giant rallies (on both sides) in Nashville, hyperbolic rhetoric coming from unions and the Left maligning our good intent and months and months of work.
It paid off.
Teachers unions no longer control a monopoly over Tennessees schools.
Liberals in the Senate want to support an energy tax hike during a vote TONIGHT.
The Senate moved its vote on the Menendez bill, legislation that singles out oil and gas companies to pay higher tax rates for domestic production, and the potential to double-tax foreign investment. What this means to us in Tennessee, we will be paying even more for gas at the pump.
Frankly, its highly unlikely that our Senators, Lamar Alexander and Bob Corker, would vote for this. But, we do need you to show our elected officials that Tennesseans reject the efforts of the Left.
