Jeb Bradley NH Senate - Support Andy Sanborn for State Senate

Dear Friends

I am writing this e-blast asking that you consider helping and supporting my friend, Andy Sanborn, who is running for the New Hampshire Senate in District 7.

Andy owns a successful restaurant and he understands what it means to meet a payroll and the struggles that small business owners and working families face. You may also know him as a proven tax fighter. Andy led efforts to repeal the job killing LLC Tax which is nothing more than an income tax on business owners.

For New Hampshire to get its economy back on track and to balance the looming budget deficit, we need committed conservatives like Andy who not only understand how jobs are created, but also how businesses and families confront challenging economic circumstances ---- by not spending money they don’t have.

If you have read my e-blasts over the past months you know the ever steepening challenges our state faces: a 23% increase in spending over the past two budgets, 67 separate tax or fee hikes in that period, a $300 million deficit in the current budget, a projected $600 million and counting deficit in the 2011 budget, unsustainable borrowing, unprecedented reliance on one-time sources of revenue, an over-zealous regulatory climate that targets small businesses, and attempts by state government to simply take private property from New Hampshire citizens.

You also know that my top priorities -- like Andy’s -- are improving the business climate in New Hampshire, cutting wasteful spending, and allowing you to keep more of what you earn. To restore these priorities in Concord it is vital to elect committed conservatives and proven tax fighters such as Andy Sanborn to the New Hampshire Legislature.

Andy is running for the Senate in a large district. He needs financial contributions to purchase lawn signs, send mail to voters, and advertise. He also needs volunteers to distribute his literature, make phone calls and get like-minded people to the polls. If you are able to assist Andy in any of these ways – large or small --- he would be extremely grateful. And you would help restore New Hampshire’s Live Free or Die Values of smaller less intrusive government, lower taxes, and personal freedom.

Please take a moment to visit his website at www.Andy4Senate.com to learn more about Andy. If you want to contribute to his campaign, please use this link:  http://andy4senate.com/contribute/. If you want to volunteer please use the Volunteer icon at www.Andy4Senate.com

Thank you so much for your consideration. With your help and support we can change the direction of New Hampshire.

Sincerely Yours,

Jeb Bradley

Bass For Congress - Bass Releases Second in a Series of Position Videos - "Best Candidate" 

In “Best Candidate,” Bass Says He Offers Republicans Best Chance to Beat Democrat Nominee in November

Concord, NH- Peterborough Republican Charlie Bass today released the second in a series of videos that outline his positions on key issues and campaign developments.   Bass is running for Congress in New Hampshire's 2nd District. 

In “Best Candidate,” which can be viewed on Bass’ YouTube Channel and the video section of the campaign’s website, www.VoteBass.com, Bass says Republicans must, “…nominate candidates that can win in November, that can attract the support of Republicans, Independents and some Democrats.”

Bass continues, “I am the candidate that can do that.  We need to get together and win this election for Republicans, for fiscal conservatives, and for the future of America.”

According to recent Federal Election Commission filings, the Bass campaign has more than $370,000 cash-on-hand.   This is more than ten times the amount of one of his closest primary competitors, and more than three times the amount of another.  

In addition, Bass recently became the only candidate in New Hampshire to be endorsed by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.   In its support for Bass, the U.S. Chamber stated:

“We’re endorsing Charlie Bass because he has a record of standing up for the people of New Hampshire in these challenging economic times,” said Bill Miller, the U.S. Chamber’s senior vice president and political director.  “He is an invaluable leader who has a common sense approach to job creation and getting America back on the road to recovery.”

U.S. Chamber Endorses Bass for Congress in New Hampshire

‘A Strong Record of Fighting for the State’s Businesses,’ Miller Says

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Today the U.S. Chamber of Commerce announced its endorsement of Charlie Bass for Congress in New Hampshire, praising his record of supporting the state’s businesses and workers.

“We’re endorsing Charlie Bass because he has a record of standing up for the people of New Hampshire in these challenging economic times,” said Bill Miller, the U.S. Chamber’s senior vice president and political director. “He is an invaluable leader who has a common sense approach to job creation and getting America back on the road to recovery.”

A strong proponent of sensible health care reform, Bass believes individuals and businesses deserve more choice in their health care options. He is also pushing to spur business growth and job creation in the region by advocating for competitive tax rates for businesses, supporting an energy policy that creates jobs, and protecting workers’ rights to a secret ballot election in union organizing drives.

“On issues ranging from competition in the health care industry, to lowering taxes, to reducing energy costs, New Hampshire’s businesses and workers will have a tireless advocate in Charlie Bass,” Miller said.

The U.S. Chamber plans to play a major role nationwide in the 2010 elections, endorsing candidates who have demonstrated consistent support for America’s job creators and will work to advance a pro-growth agenda in Congress. In 2008, 213 of the 265 Chamber-endorsed candidates (81%) were elected.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business federation representing the interests of more than 3 million businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions, as well as state and local chambers and industry associations.

ALG Statement on Obama Signing Financial Takeover Bill 

July 21st, 2010, Fairfax, VA—Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson today issued the following statement in response to the signing of the Dodd-Frank financial takeover bill into law:

"Today, Barack Obama claimed that 'the American people will never again be asked to foot the bill for Wall Street's mistakes,' and yet that is exactly what the Dodd-Frank financial takeover will do — it contains a hidden tax to finance a perpetual bailout fund. 

"This is taxation without representation.  The Dodd-Frank bill authorizes the FDIC to levy without any vote in Congress an unlimited bank tax on bank holding and insurance companies with $50 billion or greater in consolidated assets, the costs of which will be passed on to consumers of financial products, savers, and investors, with more fees, higher premiums, and other hidden costs.

"The bank taxes, which the American people pay for, will finance a so-called 'orderly liquidation fund', which will be used to bail out politically-favored firms and seize disfavored ones, redistributing their assets to privileged constituencies, as GM and Chrysler were redistributed to labor unions.

"Since Obama is saying that bailouts and government takeovers will 'never again' occur, he bears responsibility for signing a bill into law that institutionalizes 'too big to fail' and ensures that the next time there is a crisis the American people will be on the hook, paying hidden taxes to fund more government interventions to prop up failing institutions, all without any vote in Congress."
