WHITE HOUSE POLAR VORTEX - SAM KAZMAN


CEI Lawsuit Targets White House Polar Vortex Documents

 

Wednesday, the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) filed a lawsuit against the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), seeking documents related to that agency’s controversial video, The Polar Vortex Explained in 2 Minutes. 

“If this video really represented Dr. Holdren’s personal opinion, then it’s bad enough that OSTP spent taxpayer dollars to produce and post it on the White House web site,” said CEI general counsel Sam Kazman stated. “But for the agency to refuse to disclose documents related to the video in order to protect what it claims are internal deliberations is doubly ridiculous.

RED TAPE - WAYNE CREWS


How Federal Paperwork and Red Tape Has Grown since President Clinton

How have paperwork hours have changed over the past decade-plus of data collected under the Paperwork Reduction Act?

In President Bill Clinton’s last year, 2000, there were an estimated 7.361 billion hours of paperwork burden (of course, fiscal year 2001 had been underway a few months by the time Clinton left office).

Since that time, paperwork burdens have grown 28 percent to 9.453 billion in the current 2014 Information Collection Budget (which depicts fiscal year 2013). > Read more

AFPNH - This Is Your Chance! 

 
   
 


Senator Jeanne Shaheen proudly voted in support of ObamaCare. Don't miss your opportunity to vote against Obamacare by defeating Senator Shaheen on Novermber 4.

Thanks to Senator Shaheen and Obamacare, our network of health care providers and hospitals in New Hampshire has gotten smaller while our premiums and deductibles have gone up.

Enough is enough!

Senator Shaheen won't back down from her support of the disastrout and dangerous ObamaCare. So why should we support her?                                                               

As you know, we at Americans for Prosperity New Hampshire have spent this year educating New Hampshire citizens on the damage that Obamacare has wrought on our families and business owners.

Now it is your turn.

Senator Shaheen set the stage for our friends and neighbors to lose access to their hospitals and doctors through three decades of bad policy decisions. First by driving out the competition in the marketplace in 1994 and then voting for ObamaCare, which drove up costs. It's time for her to go - it's time to Fire Jeanne Shaheen.

Don't let Senator Shaheen get away with bringing Obamacare to New Hampshire. She is proud of her vote. Be proud of yours.

Live Free or Die,

Gregory Moore
NH State Director

Election Day should be a national holiday
For 146.6 million Americans who have jobs, voting is more complicated than it need be.

Lee: 'Vote this year as if your life depends on it, because it does'
Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) urgently makes the case for Americans to vote this year.

The market controls interest rates, not the Fed
Any reasonable analysis of the 30-year downward trend of interest rates must conclude that it is based less on the Fed's infrequent policy proclamations than the day to day supply and demand of bonds, particularly those denoted in dollars.
