ALEC - Cap and Trade Alert: Biggest State losers 

The U.S. Senate is expected to continue working on Cap-and-Trade legislation later this month. While we know the U.S. House version of Cap-and-Trade legislation, H.R. 2454, also known as Waxman-Markey, will have negative impacts on the U.S. economy, it’s important to note how the legislation would impact your state specifically and how your state compares to others. No one will escape the economic burdens this legislation will impose, but some fare far worse than others.

 

Find out if your state is among Waxman-Markey’s “Biggest Losers” by visiting ALEC’s Cap-and-Trade webpage. You can also click on your state to see individual state results including rankings on the following measures: gross state product loss per capita, job loss, electricity cost increases per household, and gas price increases per gallon.All rankings are based on state-level data published recently from the Heritage Foundation.Note that these results are annual averages over the time period 2012 – 2035 which makes for a truly alarming cost imposition on American families and businesses. For more on the Heritage report, visit their website at www.heritage.org.

 

Here’s a sneak peak at Waxman-Markey’s “Biggest Losers.”Remember, even if your state is not listed in the top ten, you’re still a loser under this bill!

NetRight Daily: Obama Warrants Scrutiny 

Obama Regime Warrants Scrutiny: Last week, ALG News reported a startling update in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) "rightwing extremism" threat assessment controversy after receiving an interim response from the department to Americans for Limited Government's Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.

 

Less Government or Lower Wages?: The nationwide revelry surrounding our apparent economic recovery was disrupted this week by the release of lower-than-expected retail sales data. However, rather than sending a chill up the spines of those hoping for a quick end to the downturn, the numbers should be welcomed. Though this may come as a surprise to most observers, lower retail sales are precisely what our economy needs.

 

Obama Up, Economy Down: The New York Post and The Wall Street Journal have a common ownership and share a nearly identical conservative philosophy, but the similarities stop there. The Journal has, over time, expanded beyond its financial news coverage franchise into more general interest reporting, while the Post has consistently adhered to a rather, shall we say, energetic style of conveying every conceivable kind of story. But last weekend both papers simultaneously came to the same conclusion observed in these columns weeks ago: the stock market moves inversely to Barack Obama's approval ratings.

DNC - OFA Launches Radio Ads Hailing Work of House Democrats on Health Insurance Reform, Economic Recovery 

Washington --As Members of the House of Representatives return to their districts this week forthe month-long Congressional recess, twenty-three Democrats will be greeted with radio ads from Organizing for America (OFA), a project of the DemocraticNational Committee dedicated to passing President Obama's agenda for change, hailing their work on either health insurance reform or economic recovery. The radio ads, which come on the heels of around of radio ads by the Republican National Committee targeting these same members withbaseless distortions about the success of the recovery act and the plans for health insurance reform proposed by President Obama, will begin as early as tomorrow and run into next week.

 

The health insurance reform ad, entitled "Standing Up,"will run in nineteen of the twenty-three districts and thanks members for supporting the expansion of the State Children's Health InsuranceProgram (SCHIP) and for standing up for comprehensive health insurance reform that lowers costs and protects consumers' choices ofdoctors and plans. The economic recovery ad, entitled "To the Rescue," will run in fourdistricts and thanks those membersfor supporting the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA)which "rescued our economy from the brink of disaster - and provided tax cuts to nearly every American - the largest middle class tax cut in American history." The ads also note specific projects in these districts which are saving and creating jobs.

 

OFA has conducted thousands of events in support of President Obama's efforts to reform the health insurance system, has collected hundreds of thousands of stories emblematic of the urgent need for reform and has collected over one million declarations of support for thePresident's principles for reform. In January and February, OFA held thousands of events coast-to-coast to help pass the ARRA and did the same in support of President Obama's landmark budget proposal.

 

"These members have been part of one of the mostambitious, historic and successful opening months of a Congressional session in our nation's history," said OFA Director Mitch Stewart. "From expanding health insurance to millions of vulnerable children, to passing a recovery act that rescued our economy from certain disaster, to passinga budget that halves our deficit over the next decade while making critical investments in health care, energy and education, these members have all helped bring about the change President Obama promised to bring to Washington. They are nowstanding up to the special interests, the lobbyists and the naysayers and working for big solutions to our nation's toughest problems - including fixing a brokenhealth insurance system that costs too much, leaves too many people lacking coverage and puts insurance industry profits ahead of patientcare. Thanks to the support of these members and others like them -we will reform the health insurance system in this country and make other critical policy changes to get our economy back on track."

 

The nineteen markets where "Standing Up" is airing are in the districts of U.S. Reps: Driehaus (OH-01), Dahlkemper (PA-03), Kirkpatrick (AZ-01),Giffords (AZ-08), McNerney (CA-11), Perlmutter (CO-07), Kosmas (FL-24), Grayson (FL-08), Walz (MN-01), Heinrich (NM-01), Titus (NV-03), Maffei (NY-25), Massa (NY-29), Kilroy (OH-15), Boccieri (OH-16), Space (OH-18), Wilson (OH-06), Nye (VA-02) andKagen (WI-08).

 

The four markets where "To the Rescue" is airing are in the districts of U.S. Reps: Boyd (FL-02), Childers (MS-01), Chandler (KY-06), Pomeroy (ND).

 

In addition to these radio ads, the DNC is currently on television challenging national Republican leaders on their politicization of the health insurance reform debate and the cost of doing nothing (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cc9dRP2iKuM  )and their distortions on the success the ARRA (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ZVkWTwhfi0  ). The DNC is also airing radio ads in local markets targeting U.S. Senators Jon Kyl (R-AZ) and Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and U.S. Representatives John Boehner (R-OH), Eric Cantor (R-VA) and Mike Pence (R-IN) for their failure to support the ARRA while local projects are creating and saving jobs and laying a foundations for long-term economic growth.
