Statement by ALG President Bill Wilson on the Bureau of Labor Statistics' jobless numbers

April 2nd, 2010, Fairfax, VA—Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson today issued the following statement on the increase of U-6 unemployment from 16.8 to 16.9 percent in March 2010:

"It is unacceptable that 26 million Americans are either unemployed, underemployed or have flat given up on getting a job under this Administration's put-government-first economic policy.  You cannot disconnect Obama's regulatory, enforcement and taxation attack on the private business job creation machine as well as his fiscal irresponsibility that has led to stunning deficits from the increased misery of our nation's middle class."

Shea-Porter Announces $50,000 for New Hampshire WIC 

WASHINGTON, DC — Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter today announced that the State of New Hampshire will receive $50,000 for the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC).  These funds are available through performance awards provided to States that have done an exceptional job promoting and supporting breastfeeding efforts among mothers participating in WIC.  Nationwide, WIC serves more than nine million women, infants and children each month.  The Program provides grants to States for food, health care and social services referrals, and nutrition education for low-income pregnant, breastfeeding, and non-breastfeeding postpartum women, as well as infants and children up to age five who are found to be at nutritional risk.  WIC is run through the United States Department of Agriculture.

Time for US to Throw Karzai Under a Bus
Karzai's Attempts to Play US, India, Pakistan and
Russia against one another is a Childish Attempt at Revival of "Cold War Thinking"
When the Afghan Parliament threw out President Karzai's request to replace UN election inspectors with those of "his choosing," Karzai chose to blame "foreigners" for his problems.  The problem UN inspectors found in the election that renewed the Karzai presidency last August was massive fraud, with over 1/3rd of votes being throw out.  Ranting about America or the United Nations won't cure the ills of the already seriously ill Karzai presidency.

NHDP - AYOTTE PUTS HER JOB BEFORE THE JOBS OF NEW HAMPSHIRE FAMILIES 

 

As US Adds 162,000 Jobs in March, Kelly Ayotte Still Silent on Plan to Put Granite State to Work

CONCORD - As news broke that the US economy added 162,000 jobs in March, Republican senate candidate Kelly Ayotte still refused to offer the Granite State one new idea for creating one new job in New Hampshire, focusing instead on getting herself a job in the US Senate. Thus far on the campaign trail, Ayotte has been silent on a jobs plan of her own, resorting to recycled Republican talking points and the failed economic policies of George W. Bush.

"It's clear that the only job Kelly Ayotte cares about is her own," said Emily Browne, Press Secretary for the New Hampshire Democratic Party. "Instead of spending her time coming up with solutions to get New Hampshire back to work, she's spending her time focused on one thing - getting herself a job in the US Senate. She's too busy saying anything to win a competitive Republican primary to put forward one new idea to create jobs for middle-class families."

Earlier this week, the New Hampshire Democratic Party released the real Kelly Ayotte jobs plan on her behalf: www.ayottejobsplan.com.

NHDP - Easter Bunny Delivers Basket Full of Democratic Accomplishments to NH GOP 

The Easter Bunny delivered a basket full of eggs highlighting Democrat's hard work to move New Hampshire forward

Concord - Arriving a few days early, the Easter Bunny delivered a basket full of eggs, each one touting one of the New Hampshire Democrats' major accomplishments, to the Republican Party.  Initiatives like the W.A.R.N. Act and New Hampshire Working on the state level, and comprehensive health insurance reform on the national level, are just a few of the many items on the list that have benefited hundreds of thousands of Granite Staters.

"Hopefully seeing all the great things Senator Jeanne Shaheen, Congressman Paul Hodes, Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter, Governor Lynch and all the Democrats in the state House and Senate did, will serve as inspiration to the Republican Party," said the Easter Bunny.

The recently passed comprehensive health insurance reform legislation will lower insurance premiums for New Hampshire Families by nearly $3,000 over the next six years, immediately provide tax credits of up to 35% of premium costs to small businesses that offer health insurance to their employees, and extend coverage to nearly 150,000 New Hampshire residents who are currently uninsured.

At the state level both the W.A.R.N. Act and New Hampshire working programs have taken effect, protecting Granite Staters who currently have jobs, helping those without them find work, and ensuring that the New Hampshire workforce has the training and skills necessary to compete for the best jobs available.

"The New Hampshire Democratic Party was very busy this year," continued the Easter Bunny.  "I have been an admirer of their work for generations, but this year I decided I had to recognize all they have accomplished."

A video of the Easter Bunny delivering his basket to the Republican Party is available here.  And a full listing of all the major Democratic accomplishments contained in the eggs is below.
