Horn For Congress - Say NO to Cap and Trade!

After nearly 60 days with very little progress and practically no leadership on the BP oil spill, President Obama will address the nation form the Oval Office.

One thing is nearly certain: the President is going to use this avoidable tragedy to press forward with CAP AND TRADE.

As we all know, Cap and Trade is an economic disaster that will crush opportunity and destroy millions of jobs.

Unfortunately, some Republicans support CAP AND TRADE. Our own former Congressman Charlie Bass was an early sponsor of cap and trade legislation.

We all know this is the wrong approach. We can not afford to go back and we can not afford to send someone to Washington who supports this jobs-killing legislation. Big spending, big government, cap-and-trade Republicans are no better than big spending, big government, cap-and-trade Democrats.

NRCC - Shea-Porter Votes to Keep Job-Killing Individual Mandate 

New Hampshire Dem Backs ObamaCare Mandate, Paves Way for Crippling Taxes on Small Businesses and Middle Class Families

Washington- Tonight, when House Republicans gave Carol Shea-Porter the opportunity to repeal her party’s job-killing, tax-hiking individual mandate – the heart of ObamaCare – Shea-Porter chose to toe the party line instead. By opposing the motion, Shea-Porter has voted to force struggling small business owners and middle-class families to choose between purchasing health insurance that they may not be able to afford or paying a burdensome penalty. (Roll Call 362)

“All Americans would be required for the first time to obtain insurance or face an annual penalty of $695; employers could face penalties of $2,000 per worker for not offering affordable coverage. In exchange for the new business, private insurers would be subject to an array of rules, including a ban on the practice of denying coverage to people with preexisting medical conditions and a requirement that adult children be permitted to stay on their parents’ policies until age 26.” (Lori Montgomery and Paul Kane, “House unveils $940 billion health accord,” Washington Post, March 19, 2010)

According to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO), by 2016 the individual mandate will hit middle-class and low-income families the hardest. It will force families who are already 500 percent below the poverty line to pay roughly $73,000 in new taxes. And with as little as 29 percent of Americans believing they are better off under the Democrats’ healthcare bill, Shea-Porter's vote tonight may have sealed her fate and inevitable loss in November.

“The latest tracking poll from the nonpartisan health care think tank the Kaiser Family Foundation, owever, shows just 29% of Americans think they would be "better off" under the Affordable Care Act, compared to 42% who believed that in November. So perhaps it's not surprising that some Democrats running for Congress would just focus their campaigns on the economy, the environment, immigration and a host of other issues that have eclipsed health care in recent months. With the memories of last summer's heated antireform town halls still seared in many reps' memories, the New York Times reported last week that "it was no accident" that most House Democrats chose not to hold town halls during their recent Memorial Day break.” (Kate Pickert, “New Health-Reform Campaign Puts Democratic Candidates in a Tough Spot,” Time, 6/15/2010)

“Carol Shea-Porter has once again supported her party’s unpopular healthcare takeover and paved the way to hit struggling small businesses and middle class families with unfair tax-hikes,” said NRCC Communications Director Ken Spain. “In a time of economic crisis, Shea-Porter and her Washington friends continue to prove just how out-of-touch they are with the struggles facing American families. Instead of providing common sense healthcare reform that lowers costs, Shea-Porter has once again voted to force New Hampshire small business owners and families to choose between excessive taxes or paying for a healthcare plan they can’t afford. This leaves New Hampshire families wondering: Will Shea-Porter ever start listening?”

NHDP -Chair Ray Buckley's Statement Regarding President Obama's Address on the BP Spill 

Concord - New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley issued the following statement regarding President Obama's address discussing the Administration's ongoing response to the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

"Tonight, President Obama briefed the nation on the Administration's efforts to clean up the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, and mitigate the damage being done to the region.  And the President reaffirmed his commitment to ensuring that all the individuals and businesses impacted by this spill are fairly compensated.

"The damage BP has wrought is immense.  It is imperative Congress votes to pass a comprehensive energy and climate bill that provides incentives to accelerate the development of clean energy sources.

"Repairing the destruction done during this tragedy is not enough.  We must never let this happen again, and that means ending our dependency on foreign oil, and dangerous domestic drilling."
