ALG - Ken Buck takes on 'gotcha' censorship to rename J. Edgar Hoover FBI building 

6

Oct. 23, 2015, Fairfax,Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement praising U.S. Rep. Ken Buck (R-Colo.) for noting the hypocrisy of renaming the J. Edgar Hoover FBI building while failingto rename other federal institutions named after Democrat Party racists such the Richard Russell Senate Office Building, the Robert Byrd correctional facility, and others:

 

"Ken Buck's challenge to the politically correct police who would smash every statue in their revolution against history is refreshing. It sets a bold example on how to deal with these bullies. Renaming the J. Edgar Hoover FBI building while failingto rename other federal institutions named after Democrat Party racists such the Richard Russell Senate Office Building, the Robert Byrd correctional facility, and many more is a testament to the Left's hypocrisy and selective revisionism. Considering such legislation is beneath Congress, and it is time to follow Ken Buck's lead in confronting this divisive gotcha censorship."

NH Senate Republican Caucus - Democrats uphold veto on bill to curb EBT abuse.

Forrester statement on sustained veto of EBT benefit legislation

 

Concord, NH – Today, the veto was sustained for a bill, SB 169, which would have provided clarification of the permitted uses of the Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards and cash debited from the cards.

 

“This bill, SB 169, was intended to curb the misuse of cash benefits from EBT cards by clarifying that these cards are not to be used to make purchases at state liquor stores, gambling establishments, and adult entertainment venues, or for items including firearms, lottery tickets, or tobacco,” said Senator Jeanie Forrester (R-Meredith).

 

“This legislation would have provided a clearer understanding of how these benefits should be used and I am disappointed that we could not come to an agreement and take this simple step to ensure that taxpayer dollars are spent responsibly while those who receive this critical assistance are protected,” added Forrester.

ALG - Senate Dems cower over Iran vote 

6

Sept. 10, 2015, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in response to a Senate vote denying cloture to a resolution of disapproval of the Iran nuclear deal:

 

"Predictably, Harry Reid's Senate Democrats are cowering from a vote on whether to support President Obama's Iranian nuclear treaty. The fact that Obama does not want a Senate vote on his deal should make it clear that it would be rejected on a bipartisan basis in both houses.

 

"Given that Obama has not complied with the terms of the Corker-Cardin legislation and the deal he submitted is in fact a treaty, the Senate should abide by his wishes and not vote under this flawed process. Instead, the Senate should consider the deal as a treaty under Article II of the Constitution, requiring a two-thirds ratification vote of senators present, take it up, and defeat it."

Guinta For Congress - Help Frank Counter Buckley and Democrats Attacks

Frank said he would go to Washington to fight for opportunities for all Granite Staters, and that's exactly what he has done

He is working hard every day to advance our common goals so we can create better opportunities for all in New Hampshire.  He is:

  • Providing solutions to fix NH’s heroin epidemic
  • Fighting to eliminate regulations that hurt small businesses here in NH
  • Fighting to eliminate regulations that are devastating the fishing industry

  • Working to repeal and replace ObamaCare with a healthcare model that works for New Hampshire

But the democrat party is already up to its partisan games. They’ve named him one of their top tier targets for 2016.

We are mere hours away from an important end of the month deadline and he needs your help.

Will you contribute today and help him continue to stand up for your voice and bring forth real solutions for New Hampshire’s New Hampshire?

Thank you for standing with Team Guinta,
