Lambert For Congress - The Obama Economy Is Not Working  

Nashua – Today, the U.S. Department of Commerce announced that the U.S. economy contracted by 1% in the 1st Quarter of 2014, marking the first time since 2011 that real economic output declined. In response, former State Senator and 2nd Congressional District candidate Gary Lambert released the following statement:

 

“Today’s announcement by the Obama Administration confirms what working families all across the country already knew: the Obama economy is not working for the American people,” said Lambert. “After 5 years of so-called ‘economic recovery’ marked by job loss, wage stagnation, and uncertainty, it is clear President Obama and Washington Democrats like Ann Kuster have no clue how to grow our economy. Middle-class families struggling to make it to the 15th and the 30th of the month need a new direction. I urge President Obama to change course, get government out of the way and allow the free market, small businesses, and American entrepreneurship to do what they do best - grow our economy and create jobs.”

Fed head Yellen admits Obama economy still stinks
Janet Yellen promises to keep the printing press warm in Congressional testimony: "A high degree of monetary accommodation remains warranted."

Cartoon: Climate change hypocrites
The Obama administration does not practice what it preaches on carbon emissions.

Obama conspires to attack Hillary's "Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy"
During the Clinton administration, the political left watched its monopoly on news media and content, and therefore the information an "informed" electorate utilized while making decisions in the ballot box, dissolve before their eyes. Years later, Barack Obama's administration has successfully established widespread institutional opponents to this "Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy" of liberty-minded news media.

Smith: How the middle class lifestyle became unaffordable
"There are four structural drivers behind the soaring costs of the middle class lifestyle."

Innis For Congress - Statement On Biden NH Visit 

Manchester, NH - Dan Innis, Republican candidate for Congress in NH-01, released the following statement in response to Joe Biden's New Hampshire visit today for a workplace development event.

"As a small business owner I know firsthand the crippling effect that the Obama Administration's policies have had on our economy. Career politicians like Vice President Joe Biden and Congresswoman Shea-Porter have no clue how to get America working again, but I do.

My Innis Agenda for Jobs and the Economy will remove federal barriers to job creation and allow American entrepreneurs to create the jobs we need. Free market improvements to trade, transportation and agriculture policy, as well as overdue regulatory and legal reforms will unleash the American economy. We build businesses one job at a time, and it's time for Congress to get out of the way so America can get back to work."

Guinta For Congress - Biden's Lonely Trip to New Hampshire 

Carol Shea-Porter Hides From the Administration

Last week it was announced that Vice-President Joe Biden will be in New Hampshire on Tuesday to discuss the White House’s message on jobs.

Frank Guinta released the following statement:

“Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter’s blind allegiance to the Administration’s 'jobs plan' has left the nation with historic unemployment. Not since the 1970’s have so few people been working. Carol Shea Porter and the Obama-Biden Administration simply cannot accept the fact that the government cannot, tax, spend and regulate its way to prosperity.

A couple facts about the Administration’s jobs plan that will likely not be mentioned on Tuesday :

  • The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office has reported that Obamacare will cost the United States 2.5 million jobs over the next decade.
  • A recently released report concluded that new EPA regulations will cost 1,000 manufacturing jobs in New Hampshire’s First Congressional District.
  • The $800 billion stimulus promised that unemployment would never rise above 10%, it did, and that we would be at 5% unemployment by now, we're not.


Instead of putting her confidence in big government, perhaps the Congresswoman should trust the American entrepreneur and small businesses, like the ones here in New Hampshire, to help grow our economy.”
