Rubens For US Senate - Rubens Campaign Releases Video Calling for End to Career Politics  


The Jim Rubens for U.S. Senate campaign released a web video today calling for an end to Washington career politics. The video shows New Hampshire voters speaking candidly about what they see wrong with Washington, DC and a general distrust of politicians.

"The footage shown is the pure, raw anger that people are feeling towards the disconnect between politicians in Washington, DC and the voters back home in New Hampshire," Rubens said. "This is the message I am hearing time and time again everywhere I go. People are fed up with politicians who go to Washington to do nothing but raise campaign cash for the next election, serve in office for eternity or to leave office to become a high-priced lobbyist."

In the video, Rubens makes three pledges to:

- Serve only two terms
- Send his pension back to the taxpayers
- See to it that all laws passed by Congress also apply to members of Congress

Rubens adds, "The voters are upset and they are demanding that this Washington career entitlement stop. I am the only one in this Senate race committed to doing that."

The video will be run as a web ad targeting Republican primary voters and can be viewed on is in addition to our radio ad that is still running across the state. All donations that come in from this e-mail will be used to keep these ads running. Please donate as much as you can, even a donation of $25 will help keep this ad going.


AFP - Make Harry Reid mad!


I'll wilfully admit:

We've already done quite a bit this year to upset Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

He's pretty unhappy that we've been sharing stories on the airwaves of real Americans who have been hurt by ObamaCare -- like the story of Julie Boonstra, a mother suffering from leukemia whose health care plan was cancelled because of ObamaCare.

And he's REALLY unhappy that we're actually on the ground in thousands of communities across the country fighting back against Big Government and educating people on how the left's policies are putting the American dream at risk for future generations.

But I don't think there's anything that would make Senator Harry Reid angrier than knowing that THOUSANDS of Americans for Prosperity grassroots activists are spending their Labor Day weekend learning how to defeat his Big Government agenda.


And guess what? You can be a part of this:

Make Harry Reid mad -- join us at the 2014 Defending the American Dream Summit at the Omni Hotel in Dallas, Texas on Friday, August 29th and Saturday, August 30th.

You'll hear from elected officials, business leaders, and fellow grassroots activists who are leading the charge against Big Government.

Get your tickets right away for Summit 2014 before they sell out!

Can't wait to see you there,

P.S. Senator Harry Reid HATES that Americans for Prosperity and our grassroots activists are fighting back against his Big Government policies. Join us at the 2014 Defending the American Dream Summit to learn how you can lead the charge against Big Government in your own community.




Rubens For US Senate - Rubens on Federal Appeals Court Ruling on Illegal IRS rules 

Today, a federal appeals court ruled that Obamacare subsidies issued through IRS rules are illegal.  The ruling strikes down subsidies for people enrolled in federal exchanges.  Jim Rubens, candidate for U.S. Senate issued the following statement:


"This is a major blow to Obamacare and another reason why this law must be repealed and replaced.  The IRS setup a cloudy rule process and President Obama's rubber-stamp Jeanne Shaheen allowed this mess to occur.  I agree with Judge Griffith that "Congress is supreme in matters of policy".  As your next U.S. Senator, I will fight for not only repeal of Obamacare, but replace it with bold solutions to reduce health care costs, increase quality, and expand patient choice among insurance companies and care providers."


Jim’s plan to replace Obamacare is here.
