ALG - New EPA regs will crush economy 

6

June 2, 2014, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Nathan Mehrens today issued the following statement objecting to new EPA power plant regulations

"Last week's announcement that the economy had cratered in the first quarter of 2014 with a 1 percent decline in the Gross Domestic Product should have forced President Obama to reconsider his devastating new anti-electricity generation regulations. 

"This past month's jobs report that showed that nearly one in six men ages 25-54 are not working in America, should have forced President Obama to reconsider. 

"The past seventeen years where there has been zero global warming recorded, should have forced the President to reconsider. 

"Now that the President has chosen to ignore science, workers and our nation's overall economic health, it is reasonable to assume that he never cared about any of these things.  Instead, President Obama is looking for a legacy funded by billionaire environmentalist dilettantes who can erect a statue in his name in spite of a presidency that has driven a spike through the hope of a better future for the middle class. 

"Barack Obama's 645 page assault on the ability of our nation to generate enough electricity to keep the lights on in our cities in the future, is nothing less than an economic suicide pact that must be stopped by Congress using any means necessary."

Lambert For Congress - The Obama Economy Is Not Working  

Nashua – Today, the U.S. Department of Commerce announced that the U.S. economy contracted by 1% in the 1st Quarter of 2014, marking the first time since 2011 that real economic output declined. In response, former State Senator and 2nd Congressional District candidate Gary Lambert released the following statement:

 

“Today’s announcement by the Obama Administration confirms what working families all across the country already knew: the Obama economy is not working for the American people,” said Lambert. “After 5 years of so-called ‘economic recovery’ marked by job loss, wage stagnation, and uncertainty, it is clear President Obama and Washington Democrats like Ann Kuster have no clue how to grow our economy. Middle-class families struggling to make it to the 15th and the 30th of the month need a new direction. I urge President Obama to change course, get government out of the way and allow the free market, small businesses, and American entrepreneurship to do what they do best - grow our economy and create jobs.”

Brown For US Senate - ICYMI: PORTSMOUTH HERALD: STUDENTS TALK JOBS WITH SCOTT BROWN 

Senate Candidate Discusses Issues With Young Adults

 By Kyle Stucker, Portsmouth Herald
May 29, 2014

A group of students called on U.S. Senate candidate Scott Brown in Hampton Thursday afternoon to help find solutions to a number of education-related issues inhibiting their ability to find jobs and pay off their college loans.

Brown met with roughly a dozen University of New Hampshire and Saint Anselm College students and recent graduates as part of a lunchtime roundtable session at the Sea Ketch. Students voiced frustrations about being saddled with tens of thousands in debt, the way that debt isn't adjusted based on their personal incomes, and their inability to get full-time jobs after graduation in order to pay off their debt

...

Brown said stories like Stein's are why he wanted to sit down with students Thursday, as he said the reason he is running for Congress is to “bring back that ability” for students to get into the workforce and be successful after college.

“I want to go down there and remind (elected officials in Washington) that their decisions affect real people,” said Brown.

...

Brown said it was invaluable to talk with the students Thursday because it gave him more insight and ideas for solutions in these areas, as he said he wants to “create opportunities” for young adults.
 
“To hear it firsthand is a lot different than just reading about it,” said Brown.

Brown For US Senate - WASHINGTON NEEDS TO STOP PUTTING IMPEDIMENTS IN THE WAY OF JOB CREATORS

MANCHESTER – Today, Scott Brown released the following statement in response to the news that the U.S. economy shrank for the first time in three years in the first quarter of 2014:
 
"The fact the U.S. economy shrank by one percent in the first quarter is unwelcome news for those of us concerned about creating more good jobs. Washington needs to stop putting impediments in the way of job creators. I'm especially concerned about the impact the Obamacare employer mandate will have on jobs when it takes effect in January, 2015. We need to do everything we can to create a business-friendly environment that will lead to more jobs. Right now Washington is an obstacle to job growth."

Guinta For Congress - On the Trail: Jobs Tour and More!

 

 

From Frank's Desk

We continued our endorsement run with our 11th straight week, adding 25 more elected officials, town and city leaders and Republican activists. Additionally, we were honored to release former NHGOP Chairman Wayne MacDonald, bringing the grand total to 276 endorsements thus far. All their expertise and deep ties to the Granite State will help guide Team Guinta to victory in the fall. You can see the most recent release here!

Our weekly video segment had us sitting down with longtime Republican leader, Win Hutchinson. Win brings a wealth of knowledge and know-how to Team Guinta. He will prove to be an asset to our efforts in the Queen City this year. See what Win had to say below.

Last week brought us to the Portsmouth Chamber of Commerce. We discussed many of the issues plaguing not only greater Portsmouth and New Hampshire, but the critical state of our Nation’s affairs, and the need for accountable, conservative leadership in Washington.

It was great to attend the Seacoast Republican Women’s Spring Luncheon last Friday. The SRW packed 100 plus guests into the Portsmouth Country Club to hear Dr. Betsy McCaughey, author of Beating Obamacare 2014. She discussed the crippling effects of ObamCare and emphasized how the ACA is lowering our standard of care, while sticking our seniors, employers and youth with the bill. See the full write up in the Seacoast Online here!

Friday night I returned to the Seacoast, attending the Rockingham County Freedom Founders Dinner, with keynote speaker Sen. Marco Rubio. Joined by so many friends and supporters, Sen. Rubio fired up the crowd for the campaign season ahead. It’s clear that New Hampshire Republicans and independents alike are ready for change in Washington. I am honored and energized, to be a part of that change.

We kicked off the weekend by meeting with the Hillsborough County Republican Committee. Special thanks to all those who came out early on a Saturday morning to join in the discussion. From Bedford, the team traveled to the Manchester Republican Committee Cake Auction and Candidate Forum. It’s always a pleasure meeting with such active Republicans in my home city.

Team Guinta announced that we will be embarking on a new Middle-Class Economic Recovery Tour focusing on several geographic and industry specific issues. These include; the Great Bay Estuary, manufacturing, tourism, small businesses in the North Country and job training. You can find the release on the tour here!

We kicked off the Tour on Monday with a visit to the Rochester Waste Water Treatment Plant. While in Congress, I convened an oversight hearing in Exeter to work on behalf of the Great Bay Coalition to halt the EPA from issuing a strict nitrogen permit, which would have devastated the local community. Having written legislation requiring a peer review of the science used to make this determination, I was happy to see a recent review of the science dismiss the previous study and determine no linkage between nitrogen impairment and eelgrass impairment. See the full story here!

Thursday I sat down to film the latest segment of CloseUp, with WMUR’s Josh McElveen. We had a good conversation discussing my stances on various issues like ObamaCare and the economy while also looking at what we have done thus far in 2014. Tune in to channel 9 Sunday morning at 10:00AM to watch the full interview.

We hope to see you out on the trail!

Candidate for Congresss
