NH Senate President Statement on State Employment Numbers

New Hampshire Senate

News Release

Concord, NH – Senate President Chuck Morse, R-Salem, today issued the following statement on the state’s improving employment picture:

“Over the last year more than 8,600 of our residents have found work here in New Hampshire.  This is welcome news not only for our economy but more importantly for the hardworking men and women of this state who are now able to better provide for themselves and their families.

“Yet while our state’s economic indicators remain stronger than national averages, there is still more to be done to encourage economic growth, job creation, and a welcoming business climate.  In order to regain our standing as the strongest economy in the Northeast, and put even more of our friends and neighbors back to work, the Senate remains committed to controlling state spending and returning to the sound fiscal policies that made New Hampshire the best state in the region to start, relocate, or grow a successful business.”


ALG's Daily Grind - 7 percent unemployment. happy days are here again, right?

7 percent unemployment… happy days are here again, right?
Let's not get ahead of ourselves. President Obama's administration is facing a major scandal over the alleged manipulation of its jobs data — specifically the Census Bureau community surveys that comprise the Bureau of Labor Statistics' widely watched monthly employment situation reports.

A climate of fear, cash, and correctitude
When Copernicus, Kepler and Galileo found that science and observations did not support Ptolemy's clever and complex model of the solar system, the totalitarian establishment of their day advised such heretics to recant — or be battered, banished or even burned at the stake.

Gottlieb: No, you can't keep your drugs either under Obamacare

ALG - Labor Department under fire for data manipulation


ALG issues statement on jobs report


Dec. 6, 2013, Fairfax, Va.— Americans for Limited Government vice president of public policy and communications Rick Manning, a former Public Affairs Chief of Staff at the U.S. Department of Labor, today issued the following statement praising House leaders including committee chairmen Rep. John Kline and Rep. Dave Camp for investigating allegations that the unemployment numbers are being manipulated at the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Census Bureau:

"The House Education and Workforce Committee and the Ways and Means Committee have taken a vital first step in getting answers from Labor Secretary Thomas Perez on news reports that monthly jobs data has been manipulated

"The December 3 letter from Chairmen John Kline, Dave Camp, along with the three relevant subcommittee chairmen charged with overseeing the Labor and Commerce Departments demanded that Perez provide the Committees, 'a description of all instances in which the Census Bureau reported to BLS (Bureau of Labor Statistics) its data were found to be inaccurate.'

"In the context of ongoing legitimate concerns that the unemployment numbers have been willfully and deliberately manipulated, the Labor Department's report that the unemployment rate has dramatically declined to 7 percent is evidence that it is now time for Congress to end extended unemployment benefits and restore the normal 27 week eligibility period that existed prior to 2008.

"It is also clear that the Federal Reserve should immediately begin tapering the $85 billion a month in mortgage backed securities purchases as this data, and that previously reported, demonstrate that it is unnecessary.  In fact it would be the height of irresponsibility for the Fed to continue on the reckless course of continuing the Quantitative Easing program at all."

ALG - Unemployed rises by 101,000 to 7.6 percent 

June 7, 2013, Fairfax, VA—Americans for Limited Government President Nathan Mehrens today issued the following statement on the latest job numbers:

"It is surprising that the number of people reporting they have been unemployed for five weeks or fewer jumped dramatically in May exceeding the level of one year ago.  Recent Labor Department weekly unemployment filings created the expectation that the number of recently unemployed should have stayed stable, consistent with an economy that seems to be treading water.  The jump in recently unemployed combined with the just released report showing significant decline in the manufacturing sector is just another indication that the five year old promise of economic recovery remains elusive.

"Today's report just reconfirms the idea that the government cannot spend its way out of this economic malaise, and the only path to prosperity lies with ending the Obama Administration's regulatory assault on the private sector job creators."
