Get Carly on Stage 

CARLY for America

 

Fellow Conservative,

Hillary Clinton and the Democrats are afraid of Carly Fiorina - and they should be! Carly is running for president because she knows that right now the country needs a leader it can trust, and she's shown she can be that leader.

Carly has also made it more than clear that she is ready, willing, and more than able to take on Hillary and the Clinton machine.

"I've traveled a million miles!" Clinton boasts. But what has she accomplished? Even Clinton's supporters don't have an answer. 

Carly has a message for Hillary: "Flying is not an accomplishment, it is an activity."

That's why the Clinton machine is already trying to tear Carly down. Frankly, there is no shortage of ammunition to take on Hillary, but a recent independent poll shows that Carly is the candidate Republicans would most like to see debate Hillary.

Carly has been a proven leader since she rose from secretary at a 9-person real estate firm to CEO of the largest technology company in the world. Carly is willing to address the tough questions America faces.

She is exposing Hillary's lack of accomplishment as Secretary of State: "Titles are not accomplishments. I've had a lot of titles, they're just titles. Nor is it leadership when Secretary Clinton asks, 'What difference does it make?' when our embassy is deliberately attacked!"

Hiding from our challenges and questions from the media may have been the easy way out for Senator and Secretary of State Clinton, but a leader has to take them on. That's why the Clinton machine would love nothing more than to keep Carly out of the race for president, particularly the televised debates.

Fox News has announced it will limit the number of candidates in the first debate to ten participants. To ensure that Carly is among them, and there to take the fight to Hillary and the rest of her machine, please donate $10, $35, or $50 today.

Thank you for your willingness to help!

 

Steve DeMaura
Executive Director

Jindal For President - Excerpt of Governor Jindal's Remarks at Politics and Eggs Today 

Today, Governor Jindal will deliver the following remarks on the Obamacare ruling at Politics and Eggs in New Hampshire:

  • The Obama Administration has hit rock bottom and come to the point where their definition of a good day is when they don't get over-ruled by the Supreme Court. (And by the way I disagree with the court's decision.)
  • Never mind the fact that Obamacare has driven the cost of health care plan through the roof.
  • Never mind the fact that Obamacare was sold to us on a blatant lie by the President who said if you like your health care you can keep it.
  • Never mind the fact that Obamacare is another entitlement program on top of the ones we already have that are going bankrupt.
  • Never mind the fact that Obamacare shoves many people into Medicaid, which is an outdated, one-sized-fits-all delivery system.
  • Never mind the fact that Obamacare is a loss of freedom that forces citizens and businesses under the penalty of law to buy insurance whether they want it or not.
  • Never mind the fact that the American people continue to say that they don't like Obamacare and they want it replaced.
  • None of that matters….the new definition of success for this President is that the court didn't over-rule him for once. This is nuts. Think about it.
  • They could pass a bill tomorrow increasing the income tax to 75% for everyone. It would be a terrible law. But the court wouldn't rule it illegal.
  • This Administration is so reduced that they don't evaluate success based on how it affects the American people, their new definition of success is merely legality. Pathetic.
  • Today the President said Obamacare is working even better than he expected it to. He is living in a bubble inside the White House in a dream world.

Statement by Gov. Perry on Reports of Iran Supporting the Taliban 

AUSTIN -- Gov. Rick Perry today released the following statement regarding reports that Iran is supporting the Taliban:

Reports that Iran is supporting the Taliban with cash and arms are the latest alarming consequence of the vacuum of leadership created by President Obama's failed foreign policy. Iran has time and again looked for any opportunity to pursue its regional ambitions, which opens the door to more sectarian violence in the future.

The Obama Administration has claimed that it is conceding ground in the Iranian nuclear negotiations in order to incentivize Iran to act constructively in other areas, like Afghanistan. As this latest news shows, even by the Obama Administration's own standard, these negotiations are failing.

If the Administration's nuclear deal is signed at the end of the month and sanctions against Iran are lifted, it will further enable Iran to fund fundamentalist groups like the Taliban, which we have spent over a decade fighting. It is long past time for the United States to hold the line in nuclear negotiations with Iran.

NHDP - Fact Checking Scott Walker: The truth behind his misleading claims 

CONCORD, N.H. - In today’s Union Leader, Scott Walker penned an op-ed that was, quite frankly, riddled with inaccuracies that glossed over the truth of the economic problems in Wisconsin. 

“While Scott Walker continues his campaign schedule around the country today, he can’t fool Granite Staters,” said Lizzy Price, Communications Director for the New Hampshire Democratic Party. “The real bottom line is that what Walker claimed as successes in Wisconsin are nothing but failures that have left the middle class including workers, seniors, and students further and further behind.”

Please see below for a fact check of today’s op-ed:

 

Walker Claim: “We turned that deficit into a surplus.”

Fact: Wisconsin faces a $2 billion budget deficit and Walker has skipped debt payments to make up for his irresponsible tax policies.

 

Walker Claim: “Third grade reading scores are higher.” 

Fact: According to Washington Post’s Fact Checker, Wisconsin’s fifth and eighth grade students’ reading scores fell between 2010 and 2014, showing “inconsistent performance among grade levels.”

 

Walker Claim: “In fact, Wisconsin has the second best ACT scores in the country for states where more than half the students take the exam.”

Fact: According to Washington Post’s Fact Checker, Wisconsin’s composite ACT score “has been the same compared to his first year in office.”

 

Walker Claim: “To make college more affordable for students and working families, we froze tuition. Plus, we invested in worker training and technical colleges to get people the education and skills needed for careers that pay two or three times the minimum wage.”

Fact: “Walker has proposed cutting $300 million over two years from the public university system, which some Republicans describe as too flush with cash and bloated with bureaucracy.” And “Walker proposed, and the Republican-controlled Legislature passed, a 30 percent cut in general aid to the state’s technical college system. That amounted to $71.6 million over two years.”

 

Walker Claim: “Bottom line: We found a way to fight and win for the hard-working taxpayers.”

Fact: Walker “calls for cuts to elderly prescription assistance, rural health centers, transportation projects and public schools,” further hurting Wisconsin’s middle class.

This is all while a recent study showed “that Wisconsin’s middle class — households earning between about $34,500 and $103,000 — has shrunk at a faster rate than any other state in the country.”
