NHDP Response to President Obama's Final State of the Union Address 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MANCHESTER, N.H. - Following President Obama's final State of the Union Address on Tuesday night, New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Raymond Buckley made the following statement:

 

“President Obama’s vision is one of progress, one of hope for the future. Under President Obama, we’ve had 70 straight months of private sector job growth and 17 million Americans now have health care. But we need to elect a President in November who will continue to progress and ensure the economic, personal, and national security of all Americans in the future.”


“While Republicans would repeal the progress that we’ve made, return to failed economic policies, defund Planned Parenthood, and roll back equality for the LGBT community, Democrats will build on the progress we’ve made and lead us into the challenges of the future. Come November, Democrats will win in New Hampshire because they're the ones fighting for all Granite State families.”

DNC Statement on President Obama’s State of the Union Address 

WASHINGTON – DNC Communications Director Luis Miranda issued the following statement on President Obama’s final State of the Union address:

 

“President Obama’s State of the Union address stands in stark contrast to the doom and gloom Republicans are peddling on the campaign trail. Hope, optimism, and faith in the American people have paid off over the last seven years. Our economy is adding jobs at a record pace, while the American people are safer and healthier than ever thanks to the President’s leadership. When the GOP’s candidates take the stage in South Carolina this Thursday for their next debate, they will offer up the same old failed policies. When the last Republican president left office our country was losing 800,000 jobs a month, families lost their homes and savings, and too many had to face bankruptcy just to pay for healthcare. This year the choice facing the American people is simple. We can go further to broaden opportunity for every American and ensure everyone has a fair shot, or we can go back.

“Tonight we were reminded that the State of our Union is strong, and it will take a Democrat as our 45th president to keep America moving forward.”

CEI Today: Obama SOTU, lost freedoms, and regulatory bureaucracy

OBAMA'S ENERGY POLICIES - MYRON EBELL


Disastrous realities of Obama's climate and energy policies

 
President Obama has been deeply misinformed by John Holdren, his White House science adviser who specializes in science fiction. The President is still promoting the same policies that have bankrupted Spain. Since President Obama is never going to recognize the disastrous realities of his climate and energy policies, Americans can count themselves lucky that he will be out of office in one more year. ​

ALG - Obama drops IRS regulation to require non-profits to gather donor Social Security numbers 

6

Jan. 7, 2016, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement responding to the withdrawal by the InternalRevenue Service (IRS) of a regulation that would have required non-profit organizations to record to the Social Security numbers of donors:

"We are relieved that the IRS has withdrawn the excessive regulation that would have required non-profit groups to record the Social Security numbers of donors and submit them to the agency, creating glaring security and privacy issues in violation of their First Amendment rights. This is the second time the IRS has ham-handedly tried to increase their capacity to target and harass conservative non-profits in the last three years. The last time it was a regulation severely restricting the political activity of 501(c)(4) organizations, that similarly had to be withdrawn. Hopefully this latest dropping of a politically motivated regulation signals an end to Obama's weaponization of the IRS."
