"Sentinel and Enterprise" columnist, Peter Lucas, Tuesday, July 3, 2012 clearly articulates that the Supreme Court has determined that Obamacare or the Affordable Care Act is a tax. This one fact has a potential dilitorious impact on s successful second term for the President. A pledge to not raise tax has been the bane of previous presidents who failed to go on to second terms.

The "Sentinel and Enterprise" editorial, February 23, 2012 addresses the inability of our current and past presidents to bring to bear an effective energy policy. Now, we again see President Obama, in his typical fashion, finding multiple excuses as to why he remains unable to control the rising cost of energy, especially gasoline. So once again we go without an energy program and the people suffer. In Obama's "big" energy speech earlier this week, he embarrassed himself by announcing his inability to address the rising cost of fuel. He made multiple excuses as to why he couldn't impact supply and demand, but surprised everyone as he announced a new clean energy program that was going to solve all the nation's energy woes: ALGAE.

"Boston Herald" op ed writer, Deroy Murdock in Saturday, March 10, 2012's edition comments and clarifies the growing push for states to mandate that a voter produce an official photo ID to vote in local, state and national elections. Mr. Murdock argues that having an official photo ID is part of the American experience in that a photo ID is typically required to conduct banking, travel on planes, and purchase items using your credit card. It is not equilavent to imposing a poll tax or disenfranchising a segment of the population based on race. Read the "Boston Herald's" column:
Secure Communities may be a political albatross to Deval Patrick, but for the County Sheriffs, it is a realistic approach to law enforcement. In 2013 Secure Communities will be required, but the County Sheriffs are fighting to ensure that they can begin reporting ID information on criminals to Homeland Security now.

The October meeting of the Twin City Tea Party will be held on Monday, October 27, 2014 at 6:30 pm at Barber's Crossing Restaurant, 175 Leominster Road (Rt 12), Sterling, MA in the Chocksett Room (downstairs). Barber's Crossing is off interstate 190 as it intersects with Rt 12. It is located at the Sterling-Leominster border. This is the last meeting before the November 4 elections. We are planning a candidate forum, not a debate, where candidates will be given the opportunity to share their platforms with us and give us the reasons why they have or will earn our precious vote. The Twin City Tea Party is non-partisan. All are welcome to attend. There are no cost, dues or fees to attend. Dinner at Barbers Crossing is available at the attendees expense.
Last night was our first meeting at our new location. We thank Barbers Crossing and especially Carol for their support and willingness to host our group. May we have a long and equally enjoyable opportunity to work together!
SPECIAL ALERT, IMMEDIATE CHANGE IN MEETING LOCATION: Cornerstone's Restaurant has been sold and will not reopen as a restaurant. We are currently in the process of locating a new venue for our monthly meetings, effective September 2014. The Twin City Tea Party thanks the management of Cornerstone's for allowing the TCTP to hold our meetings at their restaurant and for serving us over these past several years. Our special thanks and appreciation goes to Nancy for her dedicated service and friendship over the past two years. We will miss you Nancy and wish you well! Your conservative friends.
Don't Tread on Me!
