NHGOP CHAIRMAN HORN: SHAHEEN LEGACY IS ONE OF BROKEN PROMISES 

Below are excerpts from New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn's op-ed entitled "Shaheen legacy is one of broken promises," in the Nashua Telegraph.  To read the full piece - please click here.

 

Shaheen legacy is one of broken promises

By Jennifer Horn

Nashua Telegraph

7/14/2014

 

On November 4, 2008, then Sen.-elect Jeanne Shaheen stood before a crowd of supporters and outlined her upcoming tenure as U.S. Senator. She promised to be a strong, independent voice for New Hampshire, and she promised that she would not hesitate to disagree with her party or her President to do what's right for the Granite State.  She promised to get our economy back on track by restoring fiscal responsibility to our nation while creating good jobs and getting Washington to work for the middle class.  She pledged to work to implement foreign policy that would improve America's standing in the world, focused on the real threat of terrorism, and to free our nation from foreign energy sources.  She promised to expand affordable healthcare coverage, and to fight for people facing premiums they couldn't afford.  She promised to stand up to special interest groups, like pharmaceutical and insurance companies.  Finally, she promised to listen to the people of New Hampshire. She promised that her office door would always be open to the people of our state.

 

As Sen. Shaheen campaigns for re-election nearly six years later, one thing is certain - she has broken every promise she made on election night.  She has failed to live up to her word, in every sense. She has not kept any of her promises. Not one.

  

...

 

There is no doubt that Sen. Shaheen will campaign between now and November on falsehoods about her record and new promises that are sure to be broken if re-elected. Enough is enough. It's time for her to answer for her failures. It's time to hold her accountable for all the promises she has broken. It's time to replace her with a responsible Republican this fall.

 

Jennifer Horn is the Chairman of the New Hampshire Republican State Committee.

ALG's Daily Grind - Obama's promise to veterans

May 27, 2014

Permission to republish original opeds granted.

Obama's promise to veterans
If only President Obama had taken his promises seriously and acted on the Inspector General report detailing problems within the Veterans' Association (VA) Health System that was published just prior to his inauguration in 2009. He didn't.

Cartoon: "Briefing Room"

Slideshow — Every scandal Obama found out about on TV
All of the White House's claimed ignorance leaves the American people ignorant of one important thing: who exactly is in charge of the executive branch of the United States government?

Your Technology Is Powered by Coal. Get Over It
You do not have to have an opinion on global warming, or coal itself, to see a logic problem with the posture of eschewing companies that produce coal, but supporting companies that use lots of it

Lambert For Congress - It's Time for Accountabilty  


 

Dear Friend,

As I travel the 2nd district, I often get asked, "When is something going to be done about the IRS"s illegal targeting of conservative groups?"

Since the corruption and political targeting at the IRS were exposed nearly one year ago, no arrests have been made and too few resignations have been turned in. No one has been held accountable.

Until last night....

Last night, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to hold Senior IRS Official Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress for her refusal to answer questions about illegal targeting of conservative groups and individuals.

I fully support the House's actions to hold Lois Lerner in contempt. Her actions, along with those of numerous Obama administration officials, were criminal. We must have answers as to how this happened, who was involved, and how can we ensure this never happens again.

We need change in Washington, and we need it now.

Please visit www.lambertforcongress.com and donate $10, $20, or $50 dollars and help send me to Congress so I can add my voice and vote for the pursuit of the truth.

 

Sincerely,
Gary Lambert
Candidate for United States Congress

Governor-Elect Hassan Launches Statewide "Innovate NH Tour"

The Office of Governor-Elect Maggie Hassan

Visits Innovative Green Manufacturing Company in Portsmouth, Highlights Green Launching Pad at UNH


DURHAM - As part of her efforts to reach out to businesses, legislators, community leaders, and all Granite Staters for their ideas on how to keep New Hampshire moving forward, Governor Elect Hassan today launched a statewide "Innovate NH Tour," beginning with two stops on the Seacoast highlighting the Green Launching Pad at the University of New Hampshire and an innovative company it has helped grow.

Hassan's "Innovate NH Tour" will feature stops across New Hampshire, including visits to innovative businesses and discussions with local leaders, educators and citizens.

"New Hampshire's greatest strength is our inclusion of all people who are willing to contribute their energy, talent, and innovative ideas to addressing our challenges," said Hassan. "Our Innovate NH tour will allow people from across the state to provide feedback on my innovation plan, outline their priorities as we develop a fiscally responsible balanced budget, and share their ideas for building a stronger, more innovative New Hampshire."

Hassan launched the tour with a roundtable discussion and briefing at the University of New Hampshire on the Green Launching Pad, which provides entrepreneurs with technical, scientific and business assistance from faculty and students at UNH, helping new businesses grow. Green Launching Pad, started in 2010, has successfully built an innovation platform with the goal of launching and accelerating the growth of green ventures in NH. Since 2010, Green Launching Pad has launched/funded 14 green ventures-six in renewable energy, four in energy efficiency, and four in green manufacturing.

"In a period of two years we have successfully developed an innovation ecosystem in the state by connecting faculty researchers, students, industry mentors, and entrepreneurs both at UNH and statewide. We have shown how our community can work together to develop and nurture the next generation of entrepreneurs who can contribute towards economic development and also positively address the environmental challenges," said Venky Venkatachalam, Green Launching Pad Project Director and Professor at UNH.

Following the discussion, Hassan visited one of the Green Launching Pad's success stories, Therma-HEXX in Portsmouth, which specializes in the manufacturing of green building products to improve heating and cooling. Therma-HEXX, which was one of six New Hampshire companies chosen in 2011 for funding by the Green Launching Pad, was recently awarded the N.H. High Tech Council's Product of the Year Award for its innovative heating and cooling technology.

"Without the help of the GLP program, we could not have reached this level of success so quickly. We look forward to sharing our knowledge and experience gained through this program with future recipients of the GLP program," said Robert Barmore, Founder and CEO of Therma-HEXX.

"The work being done at Therma-HEXX has the potential to create good jobs and revolutionize energy usage in our homes and business," said Governor-Elect Hassan. "Supporting ground-breaking companies like Therma-HEXX is critical for creating jobs and strengthening our economy. My innovation plan focuses on building a strong workforce, providing targeted tax credits, and supporting programs like the Green Launching Pad that offer needed technical assistance so we can attract and grow more innovative, job-creating businesses here in New Hampshire."

As Governor, Maggie Hassan will bring people together to keep New Hampshire moving forward by focusing on innovation, fiscal responsibility and common-sense solutions to our challenges. Hassan will work with members of both parties to develop a fiscally responsible balanced budget that protects New Hampshire's priorities without an income or sales tax. She will work to implement her "Innovate NH" jobs plan, which focuses on building the best workforce in the country, providing tax credits to businesses, and giving businesses technical assistance to help them create jobs. And Hassan will reach out to legislators and citizens across the state to listen to their ideas on moving New Hampshire forward.
