Granite State Progress - 'Jobs and Economic Recovery Now!' Campaign Mounts in Face of Worst Economic Crisis Since the Great Depression

As Part of a National Campaign Effort, NH State Representatives, Advocacy Groups, and Community Leaders Urge U.S. Senator Judd Gregg to Support Major Obama Economic Recovery Plan to Create Jobs Now and Make America’s Economy Stronger in the Future

 

Concord, NH – Amid a worsening economic recession that has left over 2 million Americans without jobs and over 2.5 million more without homes, New Hampshire State Representatives, Advocacy Groups, and Community Leaders will gather at the LOB Lobby on January 29th at 9:30 a.m. as part of the national ‘Jobs and Economic Recovery Now’ campaign urging Members of Congress, including Senator Judd Gregg, to support President Barack Obama’s plan to create millions of jobs now through smart public investments that will also ensure a stronger future for the American economy.

 

Addressing the worst economic crisis the nation has seen since the Great Depression, President Obama has outlined a plan that will create or save millions of jobs by making major and sound long-term investments in energy conservation, renewable energy technologies, schools, healthcare and transportation, including the single largest investment in U.S. national infrastructure since the creation of the federal highway system in the 1950s. The plan includes careful, targeted spending with strong “use it or lose it” accountability measures. Following 8 years of misguided economic policies that gave priority to tax breaks for multimillionaires and big corporations, the Obama plan will get America’s disappearing middle-class working again.
