Is Driving to Work in Decline?


Between 2007 and 2013, the share of Americans driving to work alone actually increased. But over at The Washington Post's Wonkblog, urban affairs reporter Emily Badger has a post up on the recently released U.S. Census Bureau American Community Survey 2013 commuting data. The title of the post, "The share of Americans driving to work is declining for the first time in decades," seems to suggest that a smaller share of commuters are driving themselves to work. > Read more

Computer World: FCC accused of helping net neutrality advocates file comments


The U.S. Federal Communications Commission engaged in the worst kind of "partisan politics" by working closely with net neutrality advocates to ensure their comments were filed with the agency, but not extending the same courtesy to the other side, a coalition of groups opposed to the regulations said in a sharply worded letter to the agency. > Read more

Indianapolis Star: Supreme Court could hear challenges to Obamacare

Sam Kazman, general counsel for the Competitive Enterprise Institute, which coordinated and funded the challenges from Virginia and D.C., said it would be better for the Supreme Court to settle the issue sooner rather than later. One reason is that the penalties for large employers that don’t offer health insurance to workers begin next year.

“You have literally millions of employees and thousands of employers who have to make plans based on that,” Kazman said. “The longer it is before we get a final resolution, the more those plans have been set and the more subsidies of questionable legality will have been distributed to people purchasing through the exchanges.” > Read more

Guinta For Congress (CD1) - Granite Staters Blow out the Candles on ObamaCare  

 Year Since Its Disastrous Website Debut, Carol Shea-Porter Still Standing Up For ObamaCare

MANCHESTER – The ObamaCare website debuted one year ago today with a thunderous flop.

The website cost over $2 billion and was the latest in a long line of missteps in ObamaCare's short four year history.  As has been widely reported, New Hampshire families will likely see even higher premiums in 2015 on top of the considerable disruption this law has caused for thousands of Granite Staters. 

Frank Guinta released the following statement:

"One year ago today, Granite Staters saw very clearly what a government-run healthcare system looks like. The failure of the ObamaCare website is nothing compared to the failure of the law to keep healthcare costs down and let families keep the plans they were promised. Carol Shea-Porter's inability to look at ObamaCare objectively, recognize its flaws and work to replace it with a program that works is devastating New Hampshire.  Her reflexive, knee-jerk support for Washington's interests over those of her constituency is not the representation Granite Staters deserve."



MANCHESTER - Scott Brown released the following statement on the one-year anniversary of Obamacare’s rollout:

"As bad as Obamacare has been over the last year, the worst is yet to come when the employer mandate takes effect.  This burden is creating uncertainty, and preventing small businesses from growing, expanding and hiring more people. It’s a wet blanket on our economy.  It’s important to remember that Obamacare wouldn’t be the law of the land without Senator Shaheen who cast the tie-breaking vote.  As New Hampshire’s next senator, I will vote to repeal Obamacare and do away with the broken promises of President Obama and Senator Shaheen. I will always stand up for New Hampshire first, and fight to protect our cherished liberties and independence."

Garcia For Congress (CD2) - Marilinda Garcia Statement on Obamacare Website Anniversary 



Concord, NH– Marilinda Garcia, Republican nominee for New Hampshire’s Second Congressional District, released the following statement on the one year anniversary of the Obamacare website launch:

“The Obamacare website continues to be a prime example of the failures of Obamacare and of the burdens this policy has forced upon the people of New Hampshire. The website has been characterized by flaws, errors, and major outages, and has only added to the confusion caused by this intrusive and complex program,” said Garcia.

“However, Washington politicians like President Obama and Ann Kuster continue to blindly support Obamacare and ignore the struggles of the people of New Hampshire. Ann Kuster even boasts that she would have voted for Obamacare, despite the fact that it has now forced a majority of our state’s hospitals ‘out of network,’ caused major cuts to the Medicare Advantage fund, and resulted in skyrocketing health insurance premiums.

The people of New Hampshire clearly deserve better. I know it is imperative that we support bottom-up reforms that improve health care quality and affordability for all New Hampshire families, and put the power back in the hands of individuals.”
