NRCC - Fox News Channel: Where are NH Representatives?

Fox News Channel: Where are NH Representatives?

 

She’s in Washington, D.C. She’s in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania. But is she in New Hampshire explaining why she supports government-run health care?

 

Despite mounting frustration among New Hampshire voters, Rep. Carol Shea-Porter still won’t schedule a town hall meeting. After earning some national exposure for attending the radical lefty Netroots Nation Convention in Pennsylvania last week, Rep. Carol Shea-Porter is getting more attention today. Who would have thought NOT talking to the people of New Hampshire would generate so much national media?

NRCC - Shea-Porter Owes an Explanation: Six Months After 'Stimulus,' Americans Still Asking, 'Where Are the Jobs?' 

Budget-Busting Disaster Still Hasn’t Yielded Results

 

Washington- Today marks the six month anniversary of the signing of the Democrats’ $787 billion economic stimulus, and New Hampshire’s hard-working taxpayers are still wondering when they will see any positive effects on the economy – and still waiting for an explanation from Carol Shea-Porter about her vote to pile a mountain of new debt on their backs with no results to show for it.

 

“Despite all the spin coming from the White House and Capitol Hill, New Hampshire families know that the last six months of Carol Shea-Porter’s stimulus swindle have amounted to little more than a monumental waste of money,” said NRCC Communications Director Ken Spain. “Carol Shea-Porter and her Democrat friends embraced a ‘Washington knows best’ mentality that put nearly a trillion taxpayer dollars in the hands of bureaucrats and politicians. Six months after she handed over their hard-earned tax dollars to her buddies in Washington, New Hampshire families are still wondering: Where are the jobs?”

 

According to a new poll, Americans have lost confidence in the big-spending agenda that Shea-Porter and her allies in Washington continue to force through:

 

“Six months after President Obama launched a $787 billion plan to right the nation's economy, a majority of Americans think the avalanche of new federal aid has cost too much and done too little to end the recession.

 

“A USA TODAY/Gallup Poll found 57% of adults say the stimulus package is having no impact on the economy or making it worse. Even more —60% — doubt that the stimulus plan will help the economy in the years ahead, and only 18% say it has done anything to help improve their personal situation.” (Brad Heath, “Poll: 57% Don’t See Stimulus Working,” USA Today, 8/17/09)

 

After declaring that he was “not satisfied” with a pattern of slowed spending in June, President Obama set an ambitious goal to speed the Recovery Act’s pace. The pace of stimulus spending, however, has dropped severely in recent weeks, despite Obama’s demands to speed it up:

 

“Taxpayer groups say the numbers show spending decisions are random and prove that the $787 billion stimulus program has had no effect on the economy.... Spending as of Aug. 7, the 172nd day since Mr. Obama signed the bill, stood at $200 billion obligated. To meet the goal of $225 billion, the government will have to spend nearly $1 billion each day over the next four weeks -- or nearly double the pace of the past four weeks.” (Stephen Dinan, “Pace of stimulus spending plummets,” The Washington Times, 08/14/2009)

 

In January, the White House warned the American people that without the passage of the so-called stimulus package, unemployment would reach over 9 percent. Then, President Obama promised Americans that unemployment would slow and peak at less than 8 percent if the stimulus passed. Now, six months after the stimulus was signed into law, America faces a $1.6 trillion deficit and 9.4 percent unemployment. (Source: Department of Labor)

 

With no real progress to show since January, Carol Shea-Porter and her fellow Democrats owe New Hampshire families an explanation. After mortgaging the country’s future with a trillion dollars in new debt, will she finally take responsibility for a runaway spending spree that has failed to yield results?

NetRight Daily: Obama Warrants Scrutiny 

Obama Regime Warrants Scrutiny: Last week, ALG News reported a startling update in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) "rightwing extremism" threat assessment controversy after receiving an interim response from the department to Americans for Limited Government's Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.

 

Less Government or Lower Wages?: The nationwide revelry surrounding our apparent economic recovery was disrupted this week by the release of lower-than-expected retail sales data. However, rather than sending a chill up the spines of those hoping for a quick end to the downturn, the numbers should be welcomed. Though this may come as a surprise to most observers, lower retail sales are precisely what our economy needs.

 

Obama Up, Economy Down: The New York Post and The Wall Street Journal have a common ownership and share a nearly identical conservative philosophy, but the similarities stop there. The Journal has, over time, expanded beyond its financial news coverage franchise into more general interest reporting, while the Post has consistently adhered to a rather, shall we say, energetic style of conveying every conceivable kind of story. But last weekend both papers simultaneously came to the same conclusion observed in these columns weeks ago: the stock market moves inversely to Barack Obama's approval ratings.
