DNC - One Year: Later Despite Opposit ion from Senator Gregg President Obama's Economic Recovery Act Has Saved Economy

On First Anniversary of President Obama’s Signing of Recovery Act, Evidence Shows Bill Has Funded Jobs in New Hampshire

One year after President Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), evidence is showing that the bill has funded up to 2 million jobs nationally and brought the economy back from the brink.  Yet these successes have occurred no thanks to Senator Judd Gregg, who voted against the bill.  In fact, nearly every Republican in Congress voted against this legislation that has done so much for our country.

“President Obama’s Economic Recovery Act has saved or created thousands of jobs in New Hampshire and brought our economy back from the brink, despite Senator Gregg and the Republican Party’s best efforts to see it fail,” said DNC Regional Press Secretary Michael Czin. “This is just another example of Senator Gregg’s and the GOP’s willingness to put political posturing ahead of the best interests of Granite Staters.  Senator Gregg has shown time and time again that he is more interested in seeing the President fail than in doing what’s best for New Hampshire and the country. It’s time for Senator Gregg and the GOP to stop playing politics with our economic security and start working with President Obama and Congressional Democrats in their continued efforts to undo the damage of the last eight years.”
