AFPNH - Is there such a thing as a free lunch?!

Dr. Milton Friedman famously said, "There's no such thing as a free lunch."


But there is a free breakfast for you...if you register for our Legacy of Freedom Breakfast.

In honor of the anniversary of the birth of one of the most famous free-market economists in American history, Dr. Milton Friedman, the Americans for Prosperity Foundation and the Friedman Foundation for Educational Choice will be hosting a free breakfast on Thursday, July 31 at 7:30AM at Murphy's Diner in Manchester.  

But please RSVP ASAP because space is limited!


The event starts at 7:30AM and will end by 8:30AM so people can get to work.  It will take place at Murphy's Diner (operated by Rep. Keith Murphy), located at 494 Elm St. in Manchester (right next to the Tap Room).

Remember, space is limited!


I hope to see you there!

AFPNH - How does your legislator rank? 

 

Today our sister organization, Americans for Prosperity Foundation - New Hampshire (AFPF-NH), released its 2014 New Hampshire Legislative Scorecard ranking New Hampshire House and Senate members on their votes in support of or in opposition to economic freedom.   This should be a handy tool to determine if your elected leaders are supporting the critical steps to growing the economy or if they are instead reinforcing a bigger government that undermines entrepreneurship.

Click here to view the score card now.

The House members were scored against 15 votes from the 278 recorded roll calls there, while Senators were ranked for 9 votes cast among the 99 roll calls at that body.  

In the House, 21 members received an A+ ranking (called a "Protector of Prosperity"), while another 84 received an A grade ("Advocate of Prosperity"), including 57 members who scored 100%, but who missed one or more key votes.  These are leaders in enhancing the New Hampshire Advantage and should be applauded.

There were 220 House members who received an F ranking ("Opponent of Prosperity").  These individuals are taking the state down a path of economic futility that will make us less competitive.

In the Senate, 1 member received an A+ grade and another also scored 100%, while 13 received an F ranking.

I encourage you to view the score card and then contact your legislators thank them for their support for economic freedom or to tell them that they need to work to improve their commitment to growing job and opportunity in the state.  Their contact information is located within the score card or can be found by clicking here.

Economic freedom is critical to our state and our ability have a thriving economy.  Thank you for all you do to promote economic freedom in the Granite State.

Don't forget about our contest that is still going on - the volunteer who completes the most surveys in the last 60 days will receive free airfare, lodging, and tickets to our Defending the American Dream Summit, which will be held in Dallas this August 29-30.

AFPNH - Call your Congresswoman 

On Monday, the Obama Administration will announce new regulations that will cost our region nearly 5,000 jobs all while raising the rate we pay for electricity.


Call Congresswomen Carol Shea-Porter and Ann McClane Kuster and ask them to oppose these job-killing regulations!

A report released by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce this week shows that President Obama's proposed EPA regulation would cost the New England region's economy $2.7 billion annually and would destroy 4,700 jobs in the region.  

We need Carol Shea-Porter and Ann McClane Kuster to stand up for the people of New Hampshire and stop this proposal that will kill jobs and bring more damage to our still struggling economy.  

The report also revealed that the regulations would increase electricity costs in the Northeast, which are already among the highest in the nation, by $600 million each year.  How can we expect businesses to move here or create new jobs when these policies force them to pay more every time they turn on the lights?!  

These new regulations will mean fewer jobs and higher electric rates.

Call Congresswomen Carol Shea-Porter and Ann McClane Kuster and ask them to oppose the Obama regulations today!
