Guinta For Congress (CD1) - Frank's 44th, Wish him a Happy Birthday

 

From Frank's Desk

Good morning,

Today is Frank's 44th birthday, and we want to wish him a happy birthday with a gift that will help push Team Guinta over the top this November.

As you know, we are in a dead heat with Carol Shea-Porter. Between her trips to California wine country with Nancy Pelosi and the special interest PAC and lobbyist dollars that will flow into this district, they will come to play in a big way this fall.

With that in mind, please contribute $44 on Frank's 44th birthday to ensure we have the resources to win this fall and return this district to your hands!

Your gift will go a long way in helping defeat Carol Shea-Porter, and keeping Nancy Pelosi away from the Speaker's gavel.

Thank you for all you continue to do,

Jay Ruais
Campaign Manager
Frank Guinta for Congress

Guinta For Congress (CD1) - People Over Politics

 

An ad run by Americans for Responsible Solutions in Arizona has been taken down due to its erroneous assertions . A similar ad is being run in New Hampshire.

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

"Granite Staters are tired of the typical partisan games that puts political games ahead of providing solutions. The Democrat plans for the economy and middle class job creation have failed. Outside groups are now running desperate and grossly misleading ads intended to smear the individual instead of focusing on responsible solutions to significant issues. As always, Frank Guinta will continue providing positive solutions to invigorate the economy, strengthen the middle class and replace ObamaCare with patient centered, market driven reforms that increase access to care and drive down costs."

Guinta For Congress (CD1) - U.S. Chamber of Commerce Endorses Frank Guinta  

Guinta's Record and Focus on Jobs and the Economy Earns U.S. Chamber of Commerce Endorsement

MANCHESTER – The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has announced its endorsement of Frank Guinta for Congress in New Hampshire’s First Congressional District, citing Guinta’s extensive and proven record of advocating for New Hampshire’s business and economic development opportunities.

“Your record of support on pro-business issues earned this endorsement,” said Rob Engstrom, Senior Vice President and National Political Director of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. “We believe that your election to the U.S. House of Representatives will help produce sustained economic growth, help create more jobs, and help get our country back on track.”


The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business organization representing the interests of more than three million businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions. Its members range from mom-and-pop shops and local chambers to leading industry associations and large corporations.

Frank Guinta released the following statement:

“As a successful small business owner, I have experienced firsthand how job creators are struggling under burdensome federal regulations and an outdated tax code. I am honored to receive the support of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and I look forward to working with the small business community to reduce regulation, lower taxes, and bring stability back to our economy in New Hampshire and across the nation.”

NHDP - ICYMI: Nashua Telegraph Editorial: “‘Blah, blah, blah’ from the speaker” 

Key point: “It was just a year ago that tea-party extremists within Boehner’s own House Republican Caucus hijacked the ship when they refused to raise the debt ceiling, leading to the highly unpopular government shutdown that Boehner was powerless to stop.

“Funny, then, that he should come to New Hampshire and ask voters to send him still more tea-party representatives in the persons of Garcia and Guinta.”

See here or below for the Telegraph editorial:

‘Blah, blah, blah’ from the speaker

John Boehner, the speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, is scheduled to be in the Granite State on Wednesday to stump for Marilinda Garcia in her attempt to unseat Rep. Ann Kuster in New Hampshire’s 2nd Congressional District, and Frank Guinta’s bid to take back the seat in the 1st Congressional District.

The speaker’s office was nice enough to send us an email in advance, stating that “Boehner believes there are five key things we must do as a nation: fix our tax code, solve our spending problem, reform our legal system, rein in our regulatory system, and strengthen education.”

We agree that all of those things warrant attention.

We have harped repeatedly on the tax code issue, but Boehner has been speaker since 2011 and has had ample opportunity to fix the problem during that time. In fact, when the chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee earlier this year put forth a sweeping proposal to rewrite the tax code, Boehner’s response was, “Blah, blah, blah.” Seriously. The man literally said, “Blah, blah, blah.” Hardly sounds like a lawmaker eager to take on the challenges of the day; doesn’t say much about his leadership, either.

Perhaps one of the problems with Rep. Dave Camp’s plan was that it proposed a tax on too-big-to-fail investment banks and the wealthiest Americans in exchange for a top marginal rate of 25 percent for everybody else. Seemed like a reasonable tradeoff, though it apparently fell short of Mr. Boehner’s definition of tax reform, which may be when taxes are lowered for corporations and the super wealthy, while the burden on the rapidly shrinking middle class either becomes heavier or changes not at all.

We suspect it would be a lot easier to take the speaker at his word on the issue of spending, but he’s been in Congress since 1991, when the national debt was about $3 trillion; it’s more than $17 trillion now, and at least some of that increase happened when Boehner was in a position of leadership within his party. Buying his answers about the best way to get the country out of our fiscal quagmire requires first recognizing the fact that he helped lead us here, too. The precise extent to which he has been part of the problem may be debatable, but it seems clear that he hasn’t exactly been part of the national solution, because there haven’t been many of those coming from Congress lately. That’s true not only of fiscal issues, but also on topics like immigration, financial inequality and the legalized bribery that is our campaign finance system, among other things.

You could argue, in fact, that Boehner – along with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid – is one of the poster children for gridlock in this country. It was just a year ago that tea-party extremists within Boehner’s own House Republican Caucus hijacked the ship when they refused to raise the debt ceiling, leading to the highly unpopular government shutdown that Boehner was powerless to stop.

Funny, then, that he should come to New Hampshire and ask voters to send him still more tea-party representatives in the persons of Garcia and Guinta.

Guinta For Congress (CD1) - Shea-Porter Votes Against New Hampshire's Middle Class  

Shea-Porter Opposes an all of the above Energy Approach

MANCHESTER – Last night, Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter voted against a piece of bipartisan job-creating energy legislation.

H.R. 2, the American Energy Solutions for Lower Costs and More American Jobs Act, would establish energy independence, lower the cost of energy for New Hampshire families, and create and sustain more secure and well-paying jobs. This commonsense energy package passed the House of Representatives with Carol Shea-Porter and Nancy Pelosi voting no.

Frank Guinta released the following statement:

"Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter is more concerned with keeping her D.C. and California friends happy than creating jobs and lowering energy costs for Granite Staters. She claims to favor an all of the above energy approach, but when it comes to weaning ourselves off of Middle-East oil, building the Keystone Pipeline, and creating tens of thousands of good, middle class jobs, she is in Nancy Pelosi's pocket. The day President Obama took office in 2008, the price of a gallon of gas was $1.84.
Six years of Carol Shea-Porter, Nancy Pelosi, and Barack Obama have led to fewer jobs and higher gas prices. "
