Brown Voted to Cut $224,588 From Program Supporting Women-Owned Businesses. In 2006, Brown voted to uphold “Gov. Romney’s $224,588 veto reduction (from $299,588 to $75,000) in funding for the Affirmative Market Program (AMP). Supporters of the $224,588 said that AMP promotes equality by ensuring that minority and women-owned businesses participate in and receive state contracts in many areas including construction and the delivery of goods and services.” [Sun Chronicle, 8/7/06]
Brown was endorsed by the NFIB at North Country Tractor in Pembroke as part of the “Better Jobs For All” tour, citing his positions to repeal Obamacare and lower energy prices. Recently, the Portsmouth Herald reported that rising energy costs will pose a "dire situation" this winter in New Hampshire. Senator Shaheen voted to pave the way for a national energy tax set to increase electricity prices up to 18%.
Echoing the NFIB’s support, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce endorsed Brown and said the matchup between Brown and Shaheen, “represents one of the clearest choices between failed economic policies and a new vision for our country that will prioritize growth and prosperity.”

LONDONDERRY - Today, Scott Brown toured Wire Belt Company of America to address Jeanne Shaheen's anti-business comments from the NECN/Concord Monitor U.S. Senate debate.
"Last night Senator Shaheen insulted over 1,500 small businesses in New Hampshire by dismissing the NFIB," said Brown. "Jeanne Shaheen has a 0% rating from the NFIB this Congress, and the only thing worse than voting with President Obama 99% of the time is voting against our small businesses 100% of the time. I am running to create a stronger economic environment with lower energy costs and fewer regulations."
Wire Belt Company of America is a member of the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), one of the nation’s leading voices for small business representing 1,500 members in New Hampshire, and employs just under 100 people. Specializing in conveyer belt production, this company has seen health care premiums increase 35% under Obamacare and remains concern with the high cost of energy.
"Scott Brown has a nearly perfect score from the NFIB because he votes to support small business and will work on commonsense plans to reduce energy prices and get rid of Obamacare," said David Greer, CEO of Wire Belt Company of America. "New Hampshire needs an independent voice to fight for us, so we can do our part to grow business and hire more workers. Senator Shaheen is on the wrong side of these issues and we are ready for a change."
