Guinta For Congress - Administrations Budget Ignores Reality and Hurts Economic Growth 

Today, President Obama released his FY ’15 budget. In response, Ethan Zorfas with Frank Guinta's Campaign for Congress released the following statement:

“President Obama's budget calls for nearly $4 trillion in spending, increases taxes and serves as a White House wish list for new spending. Carol Shea-Porter owes Granite Staters an answer, are you going to continue to ignore the historic unemployment and financial crisis we face by supporting President Obama’s budget, or will you side with New Hampshire? This budget will do nothing to grow the economy or create the environment for job growth and middle class prosperity. Lastly, it fails to address the $17 trillion debt, a failure that will cost our children and grandchildren dearly.”

Innis For Congress - Statement on Today's Jobs Report 

Manchester, NH - Dan Innis, Republican candidate for Congress in NH-CD1, released the following statement today.


"Today's jobs report is yet another disappointing reminder that President Obama and Congresswoman Shea-Porter's big government policies aren't working. In the last two months alone, over a million Americans have given up looking for work. As a small business owner I know that to help create jobs Congress must balance their budget, remove barriers to entrepreneurship and encourage economic growth through free market reforms and fiscal restraint. And as New Hampshire's next Congressman I will help Congress do just that."

Testerman For US Senate - Our Economy is Treading Water 

CONCORD, NH - Karen Testerman, Republican candidate for the United States Senate, commented on the recent jobs report for December.

"The Obama-Reid-Shaheen economy is weak," Testerman said.

CNN reports:

"We're going to have a long-term unemployment crisis for a long time," said Heidi Shierholz, economist with the Economic Policy Institute. "Even if we did have 200,000 jobs a month, we would need five years to get [to a pre-recession job market -- when unemployment was below 5%," she said.

"We need to grow our economy faster to out-pace those who are wanting to enter the workforce," Testerman said. "That means not increasing regulations or effective tax rates on businesses--where jobs come from--and repealing oppressive regulations and taxes on businesses. A flatter, simpler tax on businesses and individuals would spur real economic growth like many of the years we have had in recent decades, but which Barack Obama and his fellow Democrats have not be able to produce."

ALG - 932,000 disappear from labor force in a single month 

6

Nov. 8, 2013, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Nathan Mehrens today issued the following statement

"I hope that the jobs data reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics is wrong, because if it is not, almost one million people abandoned the labor force in October.  This is not due to any short-term government shutdown, but a wholesale loss of hope that Americans have a future in the U.S. economic system.  To put this into perspective, there has not been this small of a percentage of people participating in the labor force since 1978. It is hard to imagine a more devastating report on the state of the current economy.

"Almost one million Americans gave up on the American dream.  The implications of this simple fact are unfathomably bad.  Let's hope this report is an aberration, because if it is not, our nation is in even deeper trouble than anyone had imagined."

Nov. 8, 2013

Are American consumers tapped out?
The last three quarters GDP has increased even while personal consumption has slowed down. Consumer spending is usually thought to drive economic growth, not run contrary to it. So what gives?
