Guinta For Congress - Like Clockwork, Another Day and Another Obamacare Delay 

From Frank's Desk

The Obama Administration announced today it would unilaterally extend the open enrollment period for purchasing health insurance beyond the previously scheduled March 31st deadline.

In response to this delay, Frank Guinta released the following statement:

“Another day and another delay. This morning, the Obama Administration delayed yet another portion of Obamacare. This is just the latest in a long line of political gimmicks used in order to advance their political agenda at the expense of middle-class Granite Staters. Premiums have increased, thousands have lost both their doctors and their insurance, while seniors recently saw cuts to Medicare Advantage.

This law is devastating to New Hampshire. Instead of the top down, government run approach to health care thrust upon us by Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter, we need to open up the marketplace and permit the purchasing of health insurance across state lines. We also can implement tort reform to drive down costs and increase transparency in health care. These are just a few of the solutions I would propose to improve access to affordable, quality health care for all Granite Staters.”

CEI Today: Union release time and the Obama record on regulations + overtime mandate

UNION RELEASE TIME IN OHIO - TREY KOVACS

Workplacechoice.org: Ohio Constitution Prohibits Union Release Time


Yesterday, Media Trackers reported the Ohio Centerville Classroom Teachers Association membership agreed to a new collective bargaining agreement that is still waiting on approval from the school board.

Unfortunately, according to Centerville City Schools Superintendent Thomas Henderson, the union perks from the last contract will remain intact unless the school board refrains from approving the contract and negotiates a new agreement.

The most obscene union privilege in the contract is union release time, or a taxpayer subsidy to unions, which pays government workers to perform union business unrelated to their job duties while they continue to draw a government salary.

OBAMA REGULATIONS

Forbes: 15,177 U.S. Executive Orders: President Barack Obama's Not The Only One With A Pen And Phone

 

It’s well known that President Obama pledges to use his “pen” and “phone” to implement a “year of action” with or without Congress.

There is some inexactness involved 
but the table I’ve assembled below reckons a total, overall, of 15,177 as of year-end 2013 (officially we’re at 13,659). Highlighting executive orders matters because decrees or fiats issued in a limited government context have different implications than executive orders in the activist government context that prevails now. > Read more

OBAMA OVERTIME MANDATE - HANS BADER

The Washington Times: More overtime rules enrich Obama


By making overtime rules burdensome nationwide, the Obama administration eliminates this competitive advantage enjoyed by conservative and moderate states over liberal ones. That rewards Mr. Obama’s political base even as it harms the country as a whole. > Read more

EPA BUMPS THE STATES - WILLIAM YEATMAN

Globalwarming.org: Which Sovereign Merits Judicial Deference When State & Federal Governments Conflict under the Clean Air Act’s Cooperative Federalism Arrangement?


The Supreme Court now has an opportunity to resolve a dispute involving a Clean Air Act regulation known as Regional Haze. Its purpose is to improve visibility at national parks and federal wilderness areas. Because it is an aesthetic regulation—and not a public health regulation—Congress delegated an unusually high degree of authority to the States relative to the EPA. But EPA since 2009 has taken over 11 visibility programs from the States. The plight of one of these States — Oklahoma - is at issue in this legal dispute. > Read more

CAR DEALERSHIP PUNKS UNION - TREY KOVACS

Workplacechoice.org: Car Dealership Takes Advantage of Union Tactics


In Kansas, a car dealership has been able to capitalize on the bad public relations Big Labor has thrown its way. According to The Wichita Eagle:

 

the United Brotherhood Of Carpenters And Joiners Of America Local 201 began a standard protest outside Subaru of Wichita last week with a “Shame on Subaru of Wichita” sign legally placed on the highway right-of-way in front of the dealership.

Interestingly, the dealership turned the unwanted attention into advertising ploy. Next to the union sign reading, “Shame on Subaru of Wichita,” the dealership erected a sign exclaiming, “For Having Unbeatable Prices.”. > Read more

It is time to use debt ceiling to stop Obama IRS abuse
Without the debt ceiling, House Republicans will be able to do nothing about pending IRS rules that are designed to eliminate tea party groups, while leaving Big Labor, trade associations, and groups like the Rockefeller Foundation unscathed.

Woodhill: Unemployment data brutalize Krugman and Keynes
After long-term unemployment benefits after 27 weeks were allowed by Congress to lapse, "The total number of full-time-equivalent (FTE) jobs shot up by 678,000, for the biggest one-month gain since April 2000. The number of long-term unemployed (27 weeks or more) declined by 232,000, or 6 percent5, in a single month."

NHDP - Do Republican Candidates Stand With Out of Touch Kelly Ayotte of People of NH? 

NHDems call on GOP candidates to support equal rights for all


Concord -  Do the Republican Congressional candidates stand with Kelly Ayotte or the people of New Hampshire?  That is the question Granite Staters have for Frank Guinta, Gary Lambert, Marilinda Garcia, and Dan Innis.  This weekend, Ayotte opposed the Justice Department expansion of equal rights to married lesbian and gay couples saying the executive order was just another example of “imposing its will on the states.

“Do Guinta, Lambert, Garcia and Innis stand with the people of New Hampshire they claim to want to represent or are they standing with the out of touch Kelly Ayotte on her crusade against equal rights for all?”  said New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley.  “Senator Ayotte couldn’t be more wrong.   Recognizing equal rights is recognizing the will of the people of New Hampshire, and of the entire country, it is not an imposition.”

Numerous public opinion polls show that the majority of Granite Staters support New Hampshire’s marriage equality. [UNH Survey Center; PPP] Similarly across the country, Americans support marriage equality by a wide margin. [Washington Post, 3/2013]

Last year the Supreme Court declared it unconstitutional to refuse federal benefits to married couples regardless of orientation.  This order would further expand equal rights to married couples, specifically “eliminating the distinction between same-sex and opposite-sex married couples in the federal criminal justice system.”

“New Hampshire families can’t afford any more, Republicans in Washington, like Senator Ayotte who will stand in the way of equal rights for all,” continued Buckley.  "Today I am calling on New Hampshire Republicans to join with the majority of Granite Staters and the Democratic Party in supporting equal marriage rights.”
