Cornerstone - Kuster's Spooky Press Conference 

Cornerstone Action

 Kuster's Contempt For Her Constituents is Over the Top
Manchester- NH - Congresswoman Ann Kuster styles herself "pro-choice," and she held a press conference today to emphasize that point. In a macabre display of poor taste, she talked about "choice" in front of a backdrop of skeletons, as seen in the photo below. Supporting the abortion industry isn't enough for her. She has to make a Halloween stunt out of it. Not only is this offensive in itself, but it's also an absolute affront to Second Congressional District residents who value the dignity of life.

Executive Director Bryan McCormack said, “This is a vivid display not only of Representative Kuster’s lack of care for her constituents but her lack of decorum. Clearly, she's not representing constituents who value the dignity of life. Not only does she not represent them, but she obviously has no respect for them. As a public official, one would hope for her to conduct herself with at least some level of decency and respect. Clearly such conduct is not the case with Representative Kuster.”



HAMPTON Today, Scott Brown visited Hampton resident Kerri Ruggiero to discuss the impact of climbing energy prices on New Hampshire families.  Ruggiero is a Unitil customer and was recently notified that her rates are set to increase heading into the cold winter months.
“Granite Staters sit around their kitchen tables and make tough choices to keep a budget, and higher energy prices are not affordable," said Brown.  "It's time for an all-of-the-above energy approach to increase domestic supply and lower prices to keep more money in our pockets.  Senator Shaheen broke her promise to lower energy prices and supported legislation to pave the way for a national energy tax that would cause prices to rise at the pump and for our home heating bills-- she has not put New Hampshire first." 
Portsmouth Herald recently reported that skyrocketing energy prices will be a “dire situation” for thousands of people in New Hampshire, with rates set to increase between forty or fifty percent. Ruggiero works four jobs and is concerned with price hikes that will strain her monthly budget.
“I am working four jobs to support my daughter, and the last thing I can afford is to pay more more for home heating this winter," said Ruggiero.  "I have not even turned on the heat yet and already saw a $20.00 jump in my bills.  I'm supporting Scott Brown because he has a plan to lower prices and stand up for New Hampshire.  Senator Shaheen broke her promise to help our families, and has made it clear she stands with President Obama instead of New Hampshire."


March 2013: Shaheen Voted For An Amendment To Enact Federal Energy TAx. 
“To establish a deficit-neutral reserve fund relating to ensuring that all revenue from a fee on carbon pollution is returned to the American people.” (S. Amdt. 646 To S. Con. Res. 8, Roll Call Vote #58: Rejected 41-58, 3/22/13, Shaheen Voted Yea) 

An Energy Tax Could Cost Up To 10,000 Jobs In New Hampshire. “This tax would deal a blow to employment in New Hampshire, with a loss of worker income equivalent to 7,000 to 10,000 jobs in 2013 and 10,000 by 2023.” (“Adverse Economic Impacts Of A Carbon Tax In New Hampshire,” 
National Association Of Manufacturers, 2/26/13)

A Energy Tax Could Increase The Price Of Gas In New Hampshire By More Than 20 Cents Per Gallon. “Prices at the pump would jump by more than 20 cents a gallon in 2013.” (“Adverse Economic Impacts Of A Carbon Tax In New Hampshire,” 
National Association Of Manufacturers, 2/26/13)

A Energy Tax Could Increase The Cost Of Electricity For New Hampshire Families By 18 Percent. “Households in New Hampshire would see a significant increase in their electricity rates, with an average increase of 18 percent in 2013.” (“Adverse Economic Impacts Of A Carbon Tax In New Hampshire,” 
National Association Of Manufacturers, 2/26/13)

Guinta For Congress (CD1) - Kitchen Table Talks Tour Continues in Wakefield  

Guinta Hears from Granite Staters in Wakefield

MANCHESTER – Frank Guinta joined a group of Granite Staters at a Kitchen Table Talks tour stop in Wakefield last night to talk about issues that need to be on the table in Congress.

At a gathering at a Wakefield home last night for the third stop on his Kitchen Table Talks tour, Guinta discussed the Ebola crisis, ObamaCare, and the economy with about a dozen folks.

Guinta made his first two stops of the tour in Merrimack and Rochester over the past two weeks and will continue this initiative throughout the First Congressional District as he discusses his top priority of rejuvenating the economy and getting the middle-class back to work.

Frank Guinta released the following statement:


"I had a great time last night meeting with some wonderful people and working through some of their ideas to bring some semblance of sanity into the national conversation.  At a time with so many challenges at home and abroad, it is disheartening that Congresswoman Shea-Porter continues to duck, dodge and delay any opportunity to speak with a Granite Stater or lay out any sort of plan to deal with these issues.  I look forward to continuing this tour around the district."




HUDSON Today, Governor Mitt Romney rallied with Scott Brown at Gilchrist Metal Fabricating. The pair addressed the need to lower energy costs and increase supply to boost New Hampshire's economy and eliminate the burdens of the Obama-Shaheen failed economic policies.  
"New Hampshire's energy costs are through the roof and Senator Shaheen wants to make them even higher by voting to pave the way for a new national energy tax," said Brown  “She has consistently voted against small business and has received an incredible zero rating from the National Federation of Independent Businesses.  I'm running to put New Hampshire first and I'm glad to have Governor Romney here today.  Our nation would be a lot better off with him in the White House."
"Scott Brown knows what it takes to keep the economy growing, while Jeanne Shaheen has voted to open the door for a national energy tax and supports President Obama 99 percent of the time," said Romney. "We need an independent senator who will fight for New Hampshire and that person is Scott Brown."
Gilchrist Metal Fabricating, with 35 employees, manufactures metal products for 29 service industry companies and cites energy bills are the second most expensive cost for their business. Recent reports state energy prices will increase by up to 50 percent in New Hampshire this winter.
In 2013, Senator Shaheen voted to pave the way for a new national energy tax. According to a study from the non-partisan National Association of Manufacturers, gas prices would increase by 20 cents per gallon and home heating costs would rise by $650 annually.  Shaheen has a 0% rating this Congress from the National Federation of Independent Business, compared to Brown's nearly perfect lifetime record of 94%.
"We appreciate Scott Brown and Governor Romney joining us today to focus on reviving our economy," said Jack Gilchrist, owner of Gilchrist Metal Fabricating. "Scott has been a champion for small businesses and will support meaningful reforms to lower energy costs, repeal Obamacare and eliminate the uncertainties of the Obama-Shaheen economy.  He has my vote, and we trust him to be the independent voice that will put New Hampshire first."
