Entries in Jobs (400)
May 3, 2013, Fairfax, VA—Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson today issued the following statement on the latest job numbers:
"There is little that can be learned about the direction of the economy from the tepid April unemployment report. The modest job growth combined with the lowest labor participation rate since 1981 may be the new normal under Obama policies that punish job creation. The good news is that in spite of these government headwinds exemplified by Obamacare's costly penalties on hiring, the number of private sector jobs increased by 176,000 while economic growth sucking government jobs decreased by11,000. The significant increase in temporary services hiring in the private sector shows that demand for labor is increasing, but employer uncertainty about the long term prospects of the economy are impinging a commitment to growth.
"With bi-partisan agreement in Congress that the upcoming Obamacare law is likely to be a 'train wreck' at a minimum, they should delay it's implementation for a two year period to provide more certainty for job creators that will allow them to move forward with plans for additional full time hiring."

Floyd Lee Corkins, II pled guilty to charges of domestic terrorism explaining that he came to target the Family Research Council saying, "Southern Poverty Law lists anti-gay groups."
The 224 year creep toward acceptance of governmental control is driven home in the shift of the Obamacare debate over the past few years, where in political circles, the fight has largely gone from resistance against the imposition of a federal health care law to acceptance and a battle over implementation.
Slow growth is leading to fewer jobs for young, college-educated Americans, 3.4 million of whom have not entered the workforce since 2009.
"Since 1975, one in eight of the 25 million families getting an FHA insured loan suffered a foreclosure from their 30-year, fixed-rate mortgages with a small down payment."

The House-passed budget contained several business tax increases that are bad news for all of us as they will impede economic expansion and job creation.
As you know, just as we cannot tax our way to prosperity; we cannot create jobs by taxing the job-creators!
We need your help to stop the House’s opposition to job creation in New Hampshire.
I encourage you to contact your Senator and ask them to remove these job-killing measures contained in the House budget. CLICK HERE to find your Senator and their contact information right away.
Among the anti-job creation measures in the House passed budget were:

Our state was recently ranked 48th for business taxes nationally by the Tax Foundation. This is not good news for the businesses currently in the state or any employers looking to relocate to New Hampshire. It is certainly not good news for the more than 43,000 New Hampshire residents who are out of work and hoping to find jobs.
CLICK HERE to find your Senator and ask them to put pro-job reforms in place so we can get our economy moving forward again!
Thank you for your efforts to encourage job creation in New Hampshire.
The New Hampshire Senate
Republican Majority Office
Concord, NH – Senate Republicans released the following statements on the passage of two pro-jobs bills during today’s session.
Senate Majority Leader Jeb Bradley (R-Wolfeboro) on the passage of HB 598, increasing the reasonable compensation safe harbor for Limited Liability Corporation (LLC) owners:
“In 2011, I was proud to sponsor SB125 to reform the state’s LLC statutes and establish a minimum safe harbor threshold of $50,000 for small business owners to draw as a salary. HB598 increases that threshold to $75,000 which will allow small business owners to keep more of what they make each year without worrying about intrusive audits of their finances. By establishing a more appropriate threshold, this legislation removes concerns about shifting levels of taxation and is another important step to ensuring New Hampshire remains a business-friendly state that nurtures our small businesses.”
Sen. Jeanie Forrester (R-Meredith) on the passage of HB676, extending the Coos County Job Creation Tax Credit:
“The Coos County Job Creation Tax Credit has been an added incentive to North Country businesses to create jobs throughout the recession by providing a credit against the business enterprise taxes a business would pay on new employees. As the state and the region continue to work our way back from the economic downturn, it is important that this incentive remain in place to remove some of the disincentive to hire and instead encourage the creation and expansion of business and job opportunities across the North Country.”
Both bills passed by votes of 24-0, without amendment, and now head to the Governor for her signature.
