Americans United for Change - Gregg Representing Limbaugh-Led 'Party of No' Over New Hampshire

Senator Gregg Once Again Turns His Back on New Hampshire’s Middle-Class Families With Vote Against President’s Budget Blueprint for Long-Term Economic Recovery


After 100 Days of the Obama Presidency and With No Help from Sen. Gregg:


ü 4 Million Kids in Need Now Have Access to the Healthcare They Deserve

ü Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act now working to Ensure Women Will Receive Equal Pay for Equal Work

ü American Recovery and Reinvestment Act now working to save or create 3.5 million jobs and provide 95 percent of Americans with tax relief

ü Budget Blueprint for Transformative Investments in Health Care, Education and Clean Energy Now Paving the Way for Long-term Economic Growth


Washington D.C. – Yesterday President Barack Obama marked his 100th day in office, as Americans United for Change asked U.S. Senator Judd Gregg who he thinks he is representing with his repeated votes against the President’s efforts to turn on the corner on the worst economic recession since the Great Depression. Gregg once again turned his back on New Hampshire’s struggling middle-class families with his vote yesterday against President’s budget – a blueprint for long-term economic growth transformational investments in healthcare, education, and clean energy.


Tom McMahon, Acting Executive Director, Americans United for Change: “Judd Gregg is representing the Rush Limbaugh-led ‘Party of No’ over the people of New Hampshire.President Obama has signed into law several major initiatives to help turn the corner on the worst economic crisis in generations since taking office 100 days ago, and Sen. Gregg turned his back on middle-class New Hampshire families at every opportunity. He just said NO to healthcare for 4 million children in need, including 9,300 in New Hampshire. He just said NO to the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act which is today working to ensure women will receive equal pay for equal work. He said NO to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act which is ahead of schedule and under budget towards creating or saving or create 3.5 million jobs and giving 95 percent of Americans tax relief. And yesterday he just said NO again to the President’s budget that is a blueprint for long-term economic prosperity through transformational investments in health care reform, education and clean energy. These investments are absolutely vital to our economic recovery. Without fixing our broken health care system, reducing our dependence on foreign oil, and investing intomorrow’s educated workforce – America’s struggling middle-class families will never be able to get ahead. And that’s what the President’s budget is all about.”


“Sen. Gregg is marching to Rush Limbaugh’s tune of hoping the President “fails” and are clinging desperately to the failed economic policies of the past that got us into this mess to begin with: more tax breaks for big oil and multi-millionaires that never manage to ‘trickle-down’ to anyone else and more woefully shortchanged investments in things that will actually grow the economy, like healthcare, education and clean energy,” added McMahon. “We tried it their way and look what happened.”
