Chairman MacDonald's response to the State of the Union Address




"Tonight, New Hampshire voters heard another lofty speech filled with promises to boost job creation and rebuild our economy, but this is the same empty rhetoric they've heard year after year. President Obama simply doesn't realize that his commitment falls short because his so-called 'accomplishments' are the problem. ObamaCare, reckless spending and job-destroying regulations are hurting small business owners and drowning out the free market with more government.


"Despite these promises, the unfortunate reality is that the national unemployment rate is significantly higher today than it was when he took office. Too many New Hampshire workers either can't find a job or are under-employed.


"As we look ahead to 2012, the President's broken promises on the economy and his record of more spending, more debt and more taxes will prove to be a liability for Democrats running for office across our state."

Congressman Bass on FAA Reauthorization


"I'm very pleased that House and Senate leaders have finally reached an agreement on a long-term reauthorization of the FAA, something I have called for numerous times since returning to Congress last year. It's absurd that Congress has had to pass 22 short-term extensions since 2007. The FAA deserves the stability and security that a long-term reauthorization would bring to safety and infrastructure planning. More importantly, a long-term agreement will ensure we avoid another partial shutdown of the agency and keep all FAA employees, including those in Nashua, on the job.

"I look forward to reviewing the details of the agreement and hope we can have a vote on it as soon as possible."

Congressman Guinta praises Committee on Budget Reform Passage


“There couldn’t be a clearer picture of Washington’s dysfunction than the way it budgets. Yesterday marked the 1,000th day since the Democratic-controlled Senate passed the most basic fiscal blueprint for our nation, a federal budget. So it was fitting we passed meaningful legislation in the House Budget Committee that would fundamentally change the way Washington does business on this unfortunate anniversary. The status quo is unacceptable, and all three of these bills will go a long way in fixing a broken process.”
