"Carol Shea-Porter has continued to double down on the same failed policies that have kept millions of Americans unemployed and underemployed. Granite Staters deserve better."
(Manchester – November 2, 2012) Another jobs report, another highlight of Carol Shea-Porter’s empty promises. According to the former Congresswoman, if we passed her stimulus package, we would be at 5.2% unemployment today. Sadly though, her empty promises only left us deeper in debt with unemployment at 7.8% or higher for every month of President Obama’s presidency. Not only is the jobless rate going up, but as more Americans lose hope altogether, the ‘real’ unemployment rate is now 14.6%.
Local press has noticed Carol Shea-Porter’s abysmal record on the economy and job creation. Below is just a sample of just what they have recently said about her on the important issue of jobs and the economy.
“Shea-Porter is not just extremely liberal. She is also extremely uninformed about basic economics.” – Union Leader, 9/17/12
“Shea-Porter has also said all the many jobs fairs Guinta has held are unneeded. Although we are not sure those who got jobs as a result of Guinta's efforts would agree.” – Fosters Daily Democrat, 9/26/12
“There are many actions that would help the U.S. economy far more than raising taxes and buying trains. One would be to make sure Carol Shea-Porter does not get elected to Congress ever again.” – Union Leader, 11/26/12
Derek Dufresne, Spokesman for Guinta for Congress released the following statement:
“Despite thousands of Granite Staters still hurting, Carol Shea-Porter continues to support her failed stimulus, quoting national pundits to say it created jobs. Perhaps the former Congresswoman should stop trying to convince herself that 4 years of her tax and spend agenda was effective and try listening to the thousands of unemployed and underemployed Granite Staters.
“New Hampshire’s middle-class is struggling and Shea-Porter’s failed policies did nothing to create jobs. Rather than recognizing this and looking for new solutions to put New Hampshire back to work, Carol Shea-Porter has continued to double down on the same failed policies that have kept millions of Americans unemployed and underemployed. Granite Staters deserve better.”
