Rubens For US Senate - Jim Rubens on Immigration, Career Politicians  

This week featured a tour of Laconia, including a town hall meeting with local citizens and press. The Laconia Citizen and Laconia Daily Sun covered the event.

The Laconia Daily Sun remarked: "Rubens repeatedly hearkened to the "very serious problems" facing the country and echoed the apocalyptic vision common amongst more populist Republicans. He referred to the "constitutional meltdown" and the "economy gone haywire" and warned against the overreach of the federal government reflected by the introduction of Obamacare and machinations of the Federal Reserve System."



Jim Rubens also weighed in on the immigration crisis this week, releasing his immigration reform policy The Concord Monitor covered Jim Rubens' stance in a comprehensive piece this week. You can read the full plan by clicking here. As your US Senator, Jim Rubens will apply the pressure necessary to secure the border and enforce our laws.

Finally, the campaign released a web video calling for an end to Washington career politics. The video shows New Hampshire voters speaking candidly about what they see wrong with Washington, DC and a general distrust of politicians.



In the video, Rubens makes three pledges to:

- Serve only two terms
- Send his pension back to the taxpayers

Rubens For US Senate - Rubens Campaign Releases Video Calling for End to Career Politics  

 

The Jim Rubens for U.S. Senate campaign released a web video today calling for an end to Washington career politics. The video shows New Hampshire voters speaking candidly about what they see wrong with Washington, DC and a general distrust of politicians.

"The footage shown is the pure, raw anger that people are feeling towards the disconnect between politicians in Washington, DC and the voters back home in New Hampshire," Rubens said. "This is the message I am hearing time and time again everywhere I go. People are fed up with politicians who go to Washington to do nothing but raise campaign cash for the next election, serve in office for eternity or to leave office to become a high-priced lobbyist."



In the video, Rubens makes three pledges to:

- Serve only two terms
- Send his pension back to the taxpayers
- See to it that all laws passed by Congress also apply to members of Congress

Rubens adds, "The voters are upset and they are demanding that this Washington career entitlement stop. I am the only one in this Senate race committed to doing that."

The video will be run as a web ad targeting Republican primary voters and can be viewed on JimRubens.com.This is in addition to our radio ad that is still running across the state.

Rubens For US Senate - Rubens on Federal Appeals Court Ruling on Illegal IRS rules 

Today, a federal appeals court ruled that Obamacare subsidies issued through IRS rules are illegal.  The ruling strikes down subsidies for people enrolled in federal exchanges.  Jim Rubens, candidate for U.S. Senate issued the following statement:

 

"This is a major blow to Obamacare and another reason why this law must be repealed and replaced.  The IRS setup a cloudy rule process and President Obama's rubber-stamp Jeanne Shaheen allowed this mess to occur.  I agree with Judge Griffith that "Congress is supreme in matters of policy".  As your next U.S. Senator, I will fight for not only repeal of Obamacare, but replace it with bold solutions to reduce health care costs, increase quality, and expand patient choice among insurance companies and care providers."

 

Jim’s plan to replace Obamacare is here.
