Bass For Congress - The Bass Report

Dear Friends,


We're getting down to crunch time!  Every poll shows this race to be in a dead heat and we are under two weeks until Election Day.  Every single vote will be vital.  


Between now and November 6th my campaign needs to make thousands of get-out-the-vote phone calls and knock on hundreds of doors.  We'll be doing roadside sign waves, distributing lawn signs, and encouraging our friends and neighbors to get out and vote.  


Are you able to give just two hours of your time to help us in the final 11 days?  Please get in touch with my campaign at 226-6000 to hear how you can help.  Your support has always meant so much to me, and I look forward to continuing to work together!

Charlie Bass received the endorsement of Berlin Mayor Paul Grenier. Here is part of what he had to say...


"As a Democrat, I truly appreciate Charlie Bass' willingness and commitment to work with members of both parties to solve the challenges facing our nation. This is what working families in Berlin and the rest of New Hampshire need to get our economy back on track and create jobs."

From the Papers...


Citizens across New Hampshire's 2nd District continue to write letters to the editor in favor of Charlie Bass. Read a few here...


Keene Sentinel: Bass is good for small business


We need leaders in Congress who understand the importance of small business when it comes to the economy.


Our small businesses provide jobs for the vast majority of New Hampshire residents and are the key to economic growth. Higher taxes and increased regulation just add to uncertainty and difficulty for business owners.


In my business, we have suffered the worse downturn in business over the last 4 years than in any other time in our entire 41 year history. This equates to fewer local jobs from us.


Congressman Charlie Bass is the candidate who understands how small business works. Times are tough for small businesses, and they need clarity and an assurance that their representatives will not significantly increase their tax burden and make their job more difficult with more regulation.


Businesses are afraid to hire new employees because they are unsure about the future. Charlie Bass is fighting to get back into Washington to get the economy going again, and that is the leadership we need to represent us.


With the recent endorsement of Charlie by Erskine Bowles, former chief of staff to President Bill Clinton, and Alan Simpson, former senator from Wyoming, the Democratic and Republican co-chairs of President Obama's National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform - it is clear that Charlie Bass is the candidate who is serious about working with Republicans and Democrats to get our unsustainable deficits under control and get the economy going again.


Please join me in supporting Charlie Bass for Congress this November.

Concord Monitor: Where is Kuster on the income tax?


I have three good reasons why it's important to me to re-elect Charlie Bass to Congress: my three grandchildren. I don't want them to have to pay a huge tax bill for the extravagant spending by the current administration - spending that Annie Kuster wants to increase.


Bass knows that we can't spend our way into prosperity. He knows that government doesn't create jobs, but that the private sector led by innovative small businesses create jobs.


Kuster talks about the need for government to invest in jobs - code for more spending and more taxes. Her answer is more stimulus spending, which doesn't create jobs but puts my grandkids deeper in debt.


Bass understands the economic principle espoused by my father, Gov. Meldrim Thomson: ''Low taxes are the result of low spending.''


It has been 44 years since my father advocated his pledge to veto a broad-based income or sales tax. New Hampshire now has the opportunity to permanently ban an income tax by approving a constitutional amendment to do so.


Bass opposes an income tax for the hardworking citizens of New Hampshire. Where is Kuster on taxes? She wants more, and for New Hampshire, she wants an income tax.


Voters need to ask Kuster directly: Do you support an income tax for New Hampshire? One piece of advice when you ask that question: Don't let Kuster worm her way out of the answer.
