US House Republicans - VIDEO RELEASE: Stop Acting Alone 





WASHINGTON D.C.  – House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) today released a new video imploring the President not to issue an executive action on immigration, but to instead work together as the American people expect.

The video highlights the President's flip-flop on the issue of executive actions on immigration – using several quotes from the President himself, including "the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order…that’s just not the case." 

Video Script

President Obama: Everybody agrees that our immigration system is broken. Unfortunately, Washington has allowed the problem to fester.

Speaker Boehner: This is an important issue in our country. It's been kicked around forever. And it needs to be dealt with.

President Obama: I'm beginning a new effort to fix as much of our immigration system as I can on my own, without Congress.

Speaker Boehner: The President is threatening to take unilateral action on immigration even though, in the past, he's made clear he didn't believe he had the constitutional responsibility or authority to do that.

President Obama: The notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order…that’s just not the case. 

That’s not how democracy works. 

That’s not how our constitution was written.

I can't solve this problem by myself.


NHDP - Back to the future 

BREAKING: Bill O'Brien back as Speaker.

It's official - Republicans just voted to return Bill O'Brien as New Hampshire Speaker of the House. They're going back to the future and we can expect the same extreme, Tea Party agenda:

Draconian cuts to higher education, but cheaper cigarettes. Right-to-Work for Less. Repeal of Marriage Equality. Block Access to Women's Healthcare.
We've worked too hard to let the extreme ideology of Bill O'Brien stop the progress we've made. We've stood up and stopped him before and we're going to have to do it again in 2016.
If you've saved your payment information with ActBlue Express, your donation to stop Bill O'Brien will go through immediately.

New Hampshire Democratic Party


Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn today released the following statement on Republicans winning control of the New Hampshire executive council:


"Winning control of the executive council is a major victory for Republicans in New Hampshire. The executive council offers an additional firewall to protect the people from her spending us to an income tax. It's time to bring responsible Republican leadership to Concord, and I am confident that the executive council will bring a new direction to the state house."

“Senator Jeanne Shaheen has always and will always continue to put New Hampshire first during her historic second term as our United States Senator, the first for a New Hampshire Democrat since 1972. The working families will have an ally in Washington, as she continues to fight for access to women’s health care, college affordability, and an increase in the minimum wage."

NHDP - Statement on Governor Maggie Hassan's Re-Election Victory 

Manchester, NH - New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement on tonight's re-election victory for Governor Maggie Hassan:

“Tonight's results confirm that Granite Staters support Governor Hassan's proven record of bipartisan leadership that's moving New Hampshire in the right direction. The Granite State will be in good hands as Governor Hassan continues to reach out across party lines to deliver results for our people, businesses and economy, and move our state forward."

“Following the hyper-partisan era of Bill O'Brien's disastrous budget cuts to higher education, public safety, and infrastructure, Governor Hassan worked tirelessly across the aisle to put our state back on the right track by responsibly balancing our state's budget without a sales or income tax, freezing tuition for in-state colleges, expanding access to affordable, quality health care for 50,000 Granite Staters and passing a bipartisan transportation plan that's fixing our roads and bridges. Governor Hassan will continue working to build an economy that works for everyone in New Hampshire.”
