This week, I was honored with an endorsement from the National Commission on Financial Responsibility and Reform co-chairs, Democrat Erskine Bowles, the former Chief of Staff to President Bill Clinton, and Republican Alan Simpson, a Former Senator from Wyoming.
In their letter they state, "Charlie Bass put partisanship aside and stepped forward to make the tough decisions our nation needs. He is a brave leader who deserves the thanks of everyone who really cares about our nation's future. It is for these reasons Charlie Bass has earned our endorsement and we urge you to support him as your Representative in New Hampshire."
I am honored to be the first candidate this year to receive their joint endorsement, and look forward to continuing to be a leader in efforts to increase working across party lines to solve our nations greatest problems.

Rep. Charlie Bass stands up for senior citizens
As election day grows near, I have begun to ask myself which candidates will be supporting seniors if elected to office. One candidate that I know will be supporting seniors is Congressman Charlie Bass.
Charlie Bass has vowed not to change benefits for anyone 55 years and older, but is also working to protect the programs for future generations. Through his support of the bipartisan Simpson-Bowles commission of deficit reduction, Charlie has shown that he is serious about working with both sides of the aisle. Rather than kick the can down the road, Charlie Bass is facing these problems head on, and protecting seniors from potentially dangerous cuts to Social Security and Medicare.
The recent health care law cuts billions from Medicare Advantage and we need leadership who won't watch on the sidelines as Washington forgets all that seniors have contributed over the years. Thank you, Charlie Bass, for sticking up for seniors when it matters most, and I will be proud to vote for you this November.

Charlie Bass has focused on economy
Everyone has an issue they feel to be most important to this country. I feel we need to get this country back in the right fiscal direction. While we can continue to point fingers as to what caused this $16 trillion mess in which we find ourselves, one person has worked diligently to focus as to how we can work our way out.
Congressman Bass helped author the only bipartisan budget plan based on the Simpson Bowles Commission that would reduce our deficit by $4 trillion over 10 years by cutting $3 trillion in spending, and generating $1 trillion in new revenue through comprehensive tax reform.
Thank you, Charlie, for focusing on what really matters. Congressman Charlie Bass has my vote.
