To The Daily Sun,
At its April 20 meeting, the Lakes Region TEA Party was treated to presentations by and lively discussions with its guest speakers, U.S. Senate candidate Jim Rubens, state Rep. Glenn Cordelli, and Americans for Prosperity Field Director Michael Ciccio.
Jim Rubens is running in the Republican primary for the office currently held by Sen. Ayotte because the U.S. Senate isn't solving the problems that harm most Americans. American families' real income has declined by 7 percent over the last 15 years, while their cost of living has increased by 35 percent.
Some of the factors hurting most Americans that Rubens intends to address if elected to the Senate include: securing the Mexican border, halting excessive legal and illegal immigration which is driving down American wages, repealing and replacing Obamacare with health care solutions that increase choice and freedom, and reduce health care costs, simplifying the tax code and reducing rates, reducing regulation, stopping anti-American trade deals, and restoring free-market innovation to the energy industry.
Jim Rubens believes Congress must explicitly approve the use of our armed forces in combat as required under the Constitution. He feels that Bill and Hillary Clinton's failed nation-building wars have spread terrorism and made Americans less safe. For more information see jimrubens.com.
Representative Cordelli updated us on current actions in the Statehouse. Medicaid expansion has been extended for two years (without extra New Hampshire taxpayer expense) by the New Hampshire House and Senate and signed by the governor. The House passed, and sent to the Senate, a bill requiring a conviction before any assets can be taken by civil forfeiture. This would be an important protection for citizens' private property.
Michael Ciccio talked about the Americans for Prosperity program to educate citizens about the good, the bad, and the future exposures of New Hampshire's Medicaid expansion.
The Lakes Region TEA Party thanks its guest speakers, Jim Rubens, Glenn Cordelli, and Michael Ciccio for their interesting, informative, and lively discussions of New Hampshire and U.S. topics of importance.
