Yesterday, in a major win for conservatives, a scheduled vote on the House leadership’s health care plan was pushed back due to conservative members unwavering stance against this terrible bill.

This is a testament to the pressure House members felt from their constituents who wanted actual repeal of Obamacare.

Heritage President Jim DeMint had this reaction:

As a broad spectrum of conservative policy experts have been explaining for weeks, the House health care bill was a perfect marriage of bad policy, bad process and bad politics.”

Since the day it was introduced, this was presented as a false choice of this bill or nothing, and that strategy was proven very wrong. Congressional leaders should use this opportunity to start over with a bill that truly repeals Obamacare and move forward in a transparent process.

It should include the repeal of costly Obamacare regulations that have driven premiums up by 68% for many Americans, with up to 90% hikes for young Americans, which we know may be able to pass in reconciliation.

The need to truly repeal Obamacare is as urgent as ever, as it is crushing Americans every day with high health costs and fewer choices. 70% of U.S. counties now only have one or two insurers.

Conservatives are thankful to Congressional leaders who consistently fought for real repeal and commonsense solutions, and we will continue to fight for lower costs and more choices for all Americans.

Also, in a piece in The Hill, Jim DeMint further explains why Obamacare repeal is needed and why the current GOP repeal bill falls far short of actual repeal.

Heritage has long pushed for full repeal and replacement of Obamacare and will continue to until the end.

The Daily Signal has done an incredible job covering the Supreme Court hearings for Judge Gorsuch this week.

Below you will find the top stories from the week that explain how the hearings have gone.

Currently, the committee plans on voting for Gorsuch’s nomination on April 4 followed by the Senate’s vote on April 5.

Follow The Daily Signal for updates on the nomination process.

Do you think Democrats will try to filibuster Gorsuch’s nomination in the Senate?

 

When Heritage proposed keeping Antonin Scalia’s seat open on the Supreme Court until after the election, it was seen as impossible. Yet, with your support, conservatives held firm and kept the pressure on Congress to wait.

During President Trump’s campaign, he released a list of Supreme Court Justice nominees which Heritage approved. Now he has nominated Neil Gorsuch to be the next Supreme Court Justice.

Next week, Judge Gorsuch will appear for hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee that are expected to last a few days.

This week Heritage hosted an event titled, Who is Neil Gorsuch? A Closer Look at Trump’s Supreme Court Nominee.

Watch the video below to find out more about Judge Gorsuch.

In what ways do you hope Judge Gorsuch will continue in Justice Scalia’s legacy?

Reporters at the Washington Post, Huffington Post, and Wall Street Journal are attacking The Daily Signal for their press access to the White House.

They are afraid The Daily Signal is providing an alternative to the usual left-wing or establishment media spin and are using their “mainstream” media influence to bully The Daily Signal.

And guess what? The Daily Signal does exist as an alternative to the mainstream media. They exist because you deserve the truth about what’s going on in Washington. You deserve the facts — not the liberal spin.

And no amount of bullying from the “mainstream” media is going to stop the work of The Daily Signal.

Read what The Daily Signal’s editor-in-chief, Rob Bluey, had to say about this.

‘What’s a legitimate news outlet?’

Apparently not The Daily Signal, if you believe the self-proclaimed arbiters of journalism who represent the “mainstream” media.

I have news for The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, and any other media outlet that tries to bully us: We’re not going to be pushed around. And when it comes to covering the White House, we’re here to stay.

The Daily Signal’s work is supported by conservatives like you.

Let’s help them continue to provide exceptional coverage of Washington politics.
