With Health Bill, Obama Has Sown The Seeds of a Budget Crisis
Washington Post - Robert J. Samuelson lays out the numbers, and it isn't pretty: with the passage of Obamacare, Pres. Obama and the Democrats are sowing the seeds of a real budget crisis by dramatically increasing spending when the national debt is already too high. Samuelson says our political leaders' lack of discipline is threatening the U.S. bond rating, which if lowered could cause the already listing fiscal ship to capsize.

"Fimian Minute" Offers Daily Method of Engaging Supporters -- In yesterday's News From The Front we incorrectly mentioned how VA-11 challenger Keith Fimian is engaging new voters with weekly messages on YouTube.  Turns out Fimian takes the time to issue daily messages.  Today's topic?  The economy.

Establishment GOP still resisting the tea party movement

Shea-Porter Announces $200,000 for NH Department of Health and Human Services

CONCORD - With Republican senate candidate Kelly Ayotte remaining silent on a plan to create jobs for New Hampshire's middle-class families and small businesses, the New Hampshire Democratic Party today announced Ayotte's plan on her behalf.
The NHDP revealed the Ayotte Jobs Plan on a new website:
"Kelly Ayotte has yet to voice one new idea for creating one new job in the Granite State," said Emily Browne, Press Secretary for the NHDP. "She is recycling tired GOP talking points from Washington and trying to take us straight back to the failed economic policies of George Bush. New Hampshire needs creative solutions to get our middle-class families back to work - not more of the same policies and practices that dealt this country the worst recession in modern history."
On the campaign trail, Ayotte has been a staunch advocate of the economic policies that defined George Bush's administration: tax cuts for the wealthy, lax regulation of Wall Street, tax breaks for companies that ship American jobs overseas, and billion-dollar subsidies for big oil and other corporate interests.


Jim Bender Selects Campaign Manager: Beth Lindstrom, Campaign Manager of Scott Brown's Upset Victory in Massachusetts 

HOLLIS, NH - Republican US Senate Candidate Jim Bender today announced his selection of Beth Lindstrom as Campaign Manager for his bid to become the next United States Senator from New Hampshire.  Beth Lindstrom ran the campaign for Scott Brown in the most recent special election for United States Senate in Massachusetts.  Scott Brown was the first Republican to win such an election in Massachusetts in thirty-eight years.

Jim Bender said, "Today I'm pleased to announce that Beth will be assuming leadership of our campaign.  We're confident she will lead us to victory this fall, as she did with Scott Brown in Massachusetts." 

"There are tremendous similarities between these two gentlemen,” Lindstrom quotes.  “Jim is a New England Republican, committed to controlling government spending, cutting taxes, and letting the private sector create new jobs.  Jim comes into this race as an underdog, but like Scott Brown, he has what it takes to win this election, and New Hampshire will have a Senator who puts the people first."  Lindstrom continued, “Jim has a history of fixing broken, complex organizations – which will come in handy in Washington.  He also has a tremendous understanding of finance, accounting, and economics, having created many hundreds of jobs for New Hampshire.  Finally, he knows Capitol Hill, and won’t need an orientation to become effective.”

Jim Bender said, "With Beth’s help, we will be able to put forth strategies to get our message to the people.  No one imagined a Republican winning in Massachusetts.  She took the leadership of that campaign, working hard, coming from behind, and overcoming long odds to put Scott Brown in the Senate.  We're going to do the same here.”

Beth Lindstrom oversaw the day-to-day activities of the Scott Brown campaign, paving the way for his victory in the special election held January 19, 2010.  Beth also has served as a cabinet member for Governor Mitt Romney, and was the first woman to be Executive Director of the Massachusetts State Lottery.
