Guinta For Congress (CD1) - Team Guinta Declares Victory in Debate  

Guinta Stands with the Middle Class, Shea-Porter Stands with President Obama

MANCHESTER – This morning’s debate hosted by the Mount Washington Valley Economic Council at the North Conway Grand Hotel between Frank Guinta and Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter provided a clear contrast between Guinta’s pro-growth, pro-middle class policies and Shea-Porter’s extreme, big-government agenda. 

Jay Ruais, Campaign Manager for Frank Guinta, released the following statement:

“Frank Guinta dominated this morning’s debate from start to finish. He showed that he is a strong consistent voice that will fight ObamaCare, work for our veterans, and promote economic polices that get the middle class back to work. Shea-Porter, on the other hand, proved that she will continue to be a partisan rubber stamp for President Obama. Shea-Porter is radically out of touch with New Hampshire families, and Granite Staters simply cannot afford Shea-Porter’s extreme, big-government, tax-and-spend agenda any longer. After this morning’s debate, it’s clear that Frank Guinta is the only candidate who can take our proven New Hampshire values to Washington and get things fixed.”

Guinta For Congress (CD1) - Granite Staters Kept in the Dark on ObamaCare Costs  

Obama Administration Delays Revealing Insurance Costs Until After Election

MANCHESTER – Following last year’s rollout of Healthcare.gov, the ObamaCare website, the second ObamaCare enrollment period has been pushed until after the election on November 4. 

This means that Granite Staters will not know how much their health care will cost until November 15 when the open enrollment period begins. 

Frank Guinta released the following statement: 

 

"Congresswoman Shea-Porter believes ObamaCare is a “great joy and triumph” and yet has done everything within her power to hide the true social and financial cost of this staggeringly unsuccessful government takeover of health care.  Granite Staters are already forced to deal with ObamaCare’s higher costs and fewer choices, now they will be left in the dark as to what their actual costs will be until after the election. We need to protect New Hampshire families by replacing ObamaCare with patient-centered, market-driven, quality, affordable health care."

Guinta For Congress (CD1) - Kitchen Table Talks Tour Continues in Wakefield  

Guinta Hears from Granite Staters in Wakefield

MANCHESTER – Frank Guinta joined a group of Granite Staters at a Kitchen Table Talks tour stop in Wakefield last night to talk about issues that need to be on the table in Congress.

At a gathering at a Wakefield home last night for the third stop on his Kitchen Table Talks tour, Guinta discussed the Ebola crisis, ObamaCare, and the economy with about a dozen folks.

Guinta made his first two stops of the tour in Merrimack and Rochester over the past two weeks and will continue this initiative throughout the First Congressional District as he discusses his top priority of rejuvenating the economy and getting the middle-class back to work.

Frank Guinta released the following statement:

 

"I had a great time last night meeting with some wonderful people and working through some of their ideas to bring some semblance of sanity into the national conversation.  At a time with so many challenges at home and abroad, it is disheartening that Congresswoman Shea-Porter continues to duck, dodge and delay any opportunity to speak with a Granite Stater or lay out any sort of plan to deal with these issues.  I look forward to continuing this tour around the district."

Guinta For Congress (CD1) - One day !

 

Friend,

 

We’re at a turning point in our country’s history. If the Democrats succeed in keeping Carol Shea-Porter in Congress, we will continue to see record lows in our labor force, record high debt, and a regulatory system suffocating small businesses and job creation.

That is why we are counting on you in our fight against Carol Shea-Porter and the Democrats. It cannot be done alone; we need Republicans across New Hampshire to unite in returning our state back to the hands of responsible citizens.

We wouldn’t be asking for this request if it wasn’t urgent - our fundraising deadline ends tomorrow at midnight, and we are very close to our goal. A donation of just $20 goes a long way.

I’m fighting for you. For the American Dream. For Americans across the country fed up with this Administration and the direction of this country. I’m fighting for your voice to be heard.

The deadline is tomorrow. We need your support more than ever.


Thank you,

Jay Ruais
Campaign Manager

Guinta For Congress (CD1) - Working Families Shunned by ObamaCare  

Study Explains why Granite Staters are Waking Up in a Cold Sweat to More ObamaCare Nightmares

MANCHESTER – According to a new study published by the Mercatus Center at George Mason University, ObamaCare will reduce the nationwide weekly employment rate “by slightly more than 3 percent, or about 4 million full-time-equivalent workers.”  Women specifically will bear the brunt of this reduction in the workforce.  

The study claims that ObamaCare creates strong disincentives to work, and the law’s tax penalties creates an unintended consequence where working part-time will yield more disposable income than working full-time.

ObamaCare will also “push more women than men into part-time work,” according to Casey Mulligan, study author and professor of economics at the University of Chicago. “Because a greater percentage of women work just above 30 hours per week, it is women who will be more likely to drop to part-time work” – which the law defines as less than 29 hours per week.

Frank Guinta released the following statement:

“Congresswoman Shea-Porter’s blind support for ObamaCare continues to create nightmares for Granite Staters. The disastrous health care law has already devastated the middle-class and has played a central role in creating a climate where fewer Americans are working than at any time since 1978. Granite Staters want a health care system that works for the middle-class and reduces costs while increasing access to good quality, health care.  The Congresswoman’s partisan, knee-jerk support for ObamaCare is hurting the very people she purports to support.  I will work to replace ObamaCare with market based solutions that puts you in charge, not a bureaucrat in Washington.”
