AFP - Have Your Voice Heard at the State of the Union 

This Wednesday evening, President Obama will deliver his State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress at a crucial time for our free market principles and our nation.

Due to the hard work of folks like you and the American people's strong voice, the president's health care takeover has been slowed.  As a result of his liberal agenda, the president's personal poll numbers are among the lowest for any president just finishing a first year in the White House. 

But, Wednesday night the president will attempt to redefine the health care issue, and really, his entire presidency.

We must make sure our message is heard on this crucial night -- by members of Congress and the media.

So Americans for Prosperity is hosting town hall meetings across the nation on Wednesday night beginning one hour before President Obama speaks.  CLICK HERE FOR LOCATIONS AND TO JOIN US

I hope you'll join grassroots activists like yourself to hear our "pre-response" to the president's speech and to send a message that this attempted big-government health care takeover must end now.   Then, we'll settle in together and watch President Obama's speech, after which you will have the opportunity to respond during a question and comment period. 

If you cannot join us in person, please go online to at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time to see a live video stream of our anchor town hall meeting from the great state of Arkansas.  I'll be there with local and national speakers to deliver our message.

This weekend I looked at President Obama's address to Congress last January.  In the opening minute he promised to focus on job creation and getting our economy moving again.  But, sadly he's broken his promises, focusing instead on a big government agenda that:

* Passed a $787-billion "stimulus" bill that simply poured more money we don't have into pet projects and to political allies.  The president promised his "stimulus" bill would ensure that unemployment did not go above 8%, but today unemployment stands at 10% and real unemployment at 17%, according to Department of Labor numbers.

* Called for cap-and-trade legislation that will raise taxes on gasoline and utility bills, kill hundreds of thousands of jobs, and encroach on the freedoms of Americans as they live their daily lives -- all in the name of a global warming ideology that is called into question more and more each day. 

* Passed a fiscal year 2010 budget that raised non-defense discretionary spending by 12% at a time when American families and businesses are having to cut back their budgets.

* And, with jobs being lost and Americans deeply concerned about government spending and our economy's future -- the president actually decided his top priority was to try and spend trillions on a government health care takeover that would reduce patient choice, hurt the quality of our health care and create over 100 new government agencies with tens of thousands of new federal bureaucrats.

We've got to make sure the record of this president is brought before Americans this Wednesday night as he delivers his State of the Union speech, because this health care battle is not over.   

In fact, it's at an important point with Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Reid still saying they want to move forward with an aggressive health care bill.

Your hard work and sacrifice have won us some breathing room to protect our freedoms.  But Wednesday night is a big night for us as well as the president. 

Send a message to your members of Congress and to the media that free-market activists are calling for an end to this attempted health care takeover.  And, we're calling for the president and Congress to end their big-government, big-spending, tax-increasing ways NOW.

PS:  Stay in the fight and have some fun as well.  Join us this Wednesday night at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time for one of our Americans for Prosperity town hall meetings.  CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS and to let us know you'll join us either in person or online this Wednesday.

One last thing.  The president has recently attempted to shift the focus from his big-government agenda by attacking fellow Americans with overheated populist rhetoric that seeks to find villains instead of solutions.  It's a tired old tactic from the Left -- remember Al Gore doing it in the closing days of the 2000 campaign?  But, we'll also be urging the president to end these negative attacks. 


NRCC - One Year Later, Shea-Porter and Fellow Dems Finally Pay Lip Service to Middle-Class Families

Almost A Year Since Democrats Passed Failed Stimulus, New Hampshire Middle-Class Families Are Still Asking: Where Are the Jobs?

Washington- As Carol Shea-Porter prepares to mark the one-year anniversary of her party’s failed ‘stimulus’ bill, Democrats are trying to switch gears to deflect attention from their trillion-dollar spending debacle. After ignoring middle-class families and small businesses for the past year, President Obama, and his Democrat foot soldiers will now attempt to rebuild their credibility with the backbone of America’s economy. In Wednesday’s State of the Union, President Obama will preach a message highlighting a ‘new’ focus on the middle class – messages Republicans have been emphasizing for the past year. Could this newfound recognition of the middle-class be due to the Democrats’ devastating loss in the Massachusetts special election? Or could it be due to their plummeting approval ratings? Either way, Shea-Porter and her Democrat friends have the impossible task to rebuild the bridges they have set ablaze over the past year.  

“Previewing a centerpiece of Wednesday’s State of the Union address, President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden on Monday will announce an agenda for middle class families that includes tax credits for child care, lower payments for student loans and automated IRA deposits.”

“As we make our way out of this deep recession, the most important thing we can do for the middle class is strengthen the economy and help the private sector create jobs as quickly as possible. We also must begin to reverse the declines middle-class families saw not just these past few years, but have seen for over a decade: working harder for less; college becoming more unaffordable, health care costs skyrocketing; home values plummeting; and retirement savings dwindling and becoming less secure. There are immediate steps we can take to reduce the strain on family budgets by helping middle class families manage their child and elder care responsibilities, save for retirement, and pay for college.” (Mike Allen, “President Obama, Vice President Biden unveil middle-class agenda,” Politico, 1/25/2010)

Throughout the past year, Democrats failed ‘stimulus’ has continued to receive a failing grade from taxpayers:

A majority of Americans oppose the economic stimulus program, according to a new national poll.

“Fifty-six percent of people questioned in a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Sunday say they oppose the stimulus package, with 42 percent supporting it.” (“CNN poll: 56 percent oppose stimulus program,” CNN, 1/24/2010)

“For the past year, Carol Shea-Porter has been rubber-stamping her party’s failed economic policies while middle-class New Hampshire families are left to suffer the consequences,” said NRCC Communications Director Ken Spain. “Now, one year after throwing mountains of debt onto the backs of middle-class families, Shea-Porter's party is desperately scrambling to salvage the damage they have done with a trillion-dollar spending spree that was nothing more than a political giveaway. Unfortunately for Carol Shea-Porter, her party’s mere lip-service to the issue isn’t fooling anyone.”


NHDP - Will the Entire GOP Primary Field Join Kelly Ayotte in the Pockets of Special Interest?

Kelly Ayotte Embraced Last Week's Supreme Court Decision to Give Special Interests Free Reign in NH Elections - Where do the Other Republican Candidates Stand?


CONCORD - New Hampshire Republican Senate candidate Kelly Ayotte came out in full force this weekend to defend last week's Supreme Court decision which will allow special interests and corporations to funnel an unlimited amount of money into Granite State elections, ceding control over the political process to well-financed interest groups rather than New Hampshire voters [Nashua Telegraph, 1/24/10].


Will Ovide Lamontagne, Bill Binnie and Jim Bender put themselves in the pockets of special interest as well?


"Kelly Ayotte should spend more time listening to the middle-class families of New Hampshire instead of the powerful special interests funding her campaign," said Emily Browne, Press Secretary for the New Hampshire Democratic Party. "She's been dead silent on a plan to create jobs for middle-class workers in the Granite State, yet wasted no time chiming in to defend the powerful corporations trying to drown out the voices of everyday voters in 2010. Will the rest of the GOP field jump into the pockets of special interests as well?"


Ayotte has consistently chosen to put powerful special interests and the agenda of the DC establishment before the needs of New Hampshire's middle-class families. On health care she supports a plan that would eliminate essential consumer protections like ob/gyn care and allow insurance companies to deny you coverage when you get sick [Concord Monitor, 1/8/10]. After signing a far-right pledge to repeal these protections if elected, Ayotte's campaign announced a meet and greet with health insurance executives in Washington [Fosters, 1/15/10; Blue Hampshire, 1/21/10]. And last week, her campaign came out against the President's plan to hold Wall Street accountable and recover taxpayer dollars used to bail out big banks [Union Leader, 1/21/10].


"Kelly Ayotte represents Wall Street, insurance companies, big corporations, the DC establishment and other special interests devoted to silencing New Hampshire's middle class. Who do the rest of the GOP candidates represent?" said Browne.


NHDP Chair Ray Buckley Calls on Rep. Al Baldasaro to Resign After Saying NH is “Selling Children to Homosexuals for $10,000 each” 

Concord -  Ray Buckley, Chair of the New Hampshire Democratic Party, released the following statement after Republican state Representative Al Baldasaro  (R-Londonderry), while testifying before the NH House Judiciary Committee last Wednesday, stated that "The state of New Hampshire is selling children to homosexuals for $10,000 each."

"Rep. Baldasaro's remarks have no place in New Hampshire and certainly not from a state elected official.  He needs to immediately apologize for his outrageous statement.  And his Londonderry colleague House Minority Leader Rep. Sherman Packard, as well as Deputy Minority Leader Rep. David Hess of Hooksett and Republican 16th District Senate candidate Rep. David Boutin of Hooksett should denounce these ridiculously hateful remarks and demand his resignation."

"The Granite State is a place where people of different backgrounds are accepted, not discriminated against based on their, race, gender, or sexual orientation.  To make such an ignorant comment is an embarrassment to his party, his office, and to our state. Republican legislative leaders should take swift and determined action against Rep. Baldasaro."
