EVENTSSenator Graham is pushing for amnesty just like he was pushing for new fuel taxes on carbon dioxide emissions to prevent global warming. When will Lindsey start voting like a Republican? The Senate is rushing to pass the 850 page amnesty bill (S.744) and is using many of the same deceptive techniques and accounting tricks that Congress used during the Obamacare debates in 2009.

In 2007, The Heritage Foundation released a report that the amnesty analysis was the estimated net cost to the taxpayers of $2.6 trillion. Earlier this week, they released a new report, which showed that amnesty today will cost $6.3 trillion. One of the big reasons for this is a loophole regarding who can receive benefits in the immigration bill going through the Senate as well as the massive growth in entitlements since 2007.

SC Nullify Obamacare(H.3101)

Senator Leatherman Protest


The Chairman of the Senate Finance committee has refused to assign H.3101, our bill to nullify Obamacare to a sub-committee and give it a hearing. We have until June 6th to get this bill passed and signed by the Governor before this year’s session is over. We moved H.3101 when it was stalled in the House Judiciary committee, by door knocking and passing out flyers in the Chairman’s neighborhood. It’s Leatherman’s turn to feel the heat. He has had ample time, and multitudes of phone calls given to him, yet he hasn’t budged. We will meet outside of his Real Estate Business this Friday to protest against the one man that is holding up protection from Obamacare. Make signs, and I will bring flyers. We may also drive to his neighborhood and pass out flyers to his neighbors. Historically this is the fastest way to move legislation. It’s do or die folks…Unprecedented times require unprecedented measures. Remember we are just defending our families health and Freedom by doing this!





We are urged to let Senator Leatherman know that we are serious about Nullification of Obamacare in South Carolina
