NH GOP - ICYMI: Looks Like Panic Has Set In 

Friends,

  

In case you missed it, there was a compelling editorial in today's Foster's Daily Democrat detailing Jeanne Shaheen's shameless hypocrisy. Below are a few excerpts that highlight the state of panic within the Democrat Party that has led them to new lows. It's no wonder then that Senator Shaheen's legislative record has been equally self-serving, leaving New Hampshire as a mere afterthought. Help us keep DC politicians accountable by volunteering or becoming a grassroots giver today. 

 

Thank you for all that you do. 

 

Best wishes,

 

Jennifer Horn

Chairman

New Hampshire Republican State Committee

 

 

Excerpts from today's Foster's Daily Democrat 
 
"Looks Like a Panic Has Set In"
  • Ordinarily, it is wise politics to not level charges that can come back to bite you in the tookus. Party chair Buckley should know this and know better. Case in point is his party's very own U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen. As has been widely reported, this darling of the Democratic Party recently spent time fundraising in California.
  • How can Sen. Shaheen, as a member of the party faithful, campaign on a platform of bipartisan cooperation while Buckley trashes the notion on almost a daily basis? Of course, we know the answer. Buckley is running scared that his Democratic kingdom is beginning to crumble. 
  • Nationally, it looks as if the Democrats are preparing for a political butt kicking that even well-connected New Hampshire Democrats admit could unseat Shaheen. Then there's the precipice over which Democratic U.S. Reps. Carol Shea-Porter and Annie Kuster are looking. It's no wonder there is panic in the board room of state Democratic Party headquarters.

ALG - Internet Stewardship Act would require Congressional authority to turn over Internet

6

April 14, 2014, Fairfax, VA Americans for Limited Government President Nathan Mehrens today issued the following statement urging passage of H.R. 4367, the "Internet Stewardship Act" offered by Rep. Mike Kelly (R-Penn.) that would require Congressional authorization for any federal turnover of the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) to any other entity:

"President Obama should not be giving the Internet away to anyone without a vote in Congress. Rep. Kelly's legislation will reaffirm Congressional authority over any Internet transition taking place, guaranteeing that our elected representatives have a say in keeping the World Wide Web free and open from censorship. But, with the current Commerce Department contract with ICANN coming to an end in September 2015, the House will need to move decisively to enact it and then work with Senate colleagues to force a vote there, too.

"The Administration has yet to produce a legal analysis justifying turning over key Internet names and numbers authorities without Congressional authority to some as of yet unconstituted international body. It has also failed to show how current First Amendment protections of free speech afforded under the current regime of Internet stewardship will be safeguarded once the Commerce Department's arrangement with ICANN ends. The House should take immediate action to move the Internet Stewardship Act to the floor for passage."

NHGOP STATEMENT ON SHAHEEN'S SHAMELESS SALES TAX STUNT 

NHGOP Banner

Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement on Senator Jeanne Shaheen's attempt to distract from her support for a sales tax. Shaheen announced today that she will talk about a sales tax tomorrow:

 

"As a candidate for governor, Jeanne Shaheen lied to New Hampshire when she pledged to oppose a broad based tax. After taking office, Shaheen broke her word and tried to destroy the New Hampshire Advantage by attempting to impose a disastrous sales tax that would have crushed small businesses.

 

"Shaheen's dishonest attempt to distract from enthusiastic support for a sales tax is another sign of her increasingly desperate campaign. Granite Staters are smart enough to see through her shameless political tactics and recognize that she is a tax and spend liberal who has voted for President Obama's failed policies 99 percent of the time."

YRNF - Happy Passover 

Dear YRs,

Passover marks the events from Exodus when an oppressed people were able to choose their own course, be free and practice their faith. 
 
As Jewish families across the United States come together at the Seder table, on behalf of the Young Republican National Federation I would like to wish them a Chag Sameach (joyous festival).
 
The United States was founded upon these very principles of individual liberty and religious freedom, but as the recent attack on a Jewish community center in Kansas shows we must always be vigilant to protect these freedoms.  Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and families of the victims of this terrible assault. 

Sincerely,
Jason Weingartner
Chairman, Young Republican National Federation

Heritage - Where Did Your Tax Money Go? 

April 15, 2014

 

Where Did Your Tax Money Go?

It’s pretty unreal when you see it.

Your 2013 tax dollars—which are due today—went primarily to pay for government benefits.

Major entitlements (Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security) gobbled up 49 percent, while more federal benefits took another 20 percent. These additional “income security” benefits include federal employee retirement and disability, unemployment benefits, and welfare programs such as food and housing assistance. Obamacare spending didn’t really kick in until 2014, so that will show up in next year’s breakdown.
