AFP-NH Joins National Campaign to “Unrig the Economy”

CONCORD, NH—Americans for Prosperity-New Hampshire (AFP-NH) today highlighted its role as part of an integrated campaign to create a strong economy by leveling the playing field for all. The campaign, “Unrig the Economy,” is a multi-year, multi-million-dollar national effort that will harness the power of AFP’s grassroots to drive change at both the state and federal level.

The first phase launching today will kick off with a robust direct mail and digital effort to oppose the Export-Import Bank’s reauthorization and the renewal of tax extenders. As part of this initial push, AFP is encouraging Senate Finance member, Senator Maggie Hassan to stop the renewal of so-called “tax extenders.”

AFP-NH State Director Greg Moore issued the following statement:

“Tax extenders are the epitome of everything that is wrong with Washington – a benefit for the few, well-connected at the expense of everyone else. We urge Senator Hassan to eliminate this form of corporate welfare and help level the playing field for everyone. Lawmakers should reject these tax giveaways and ensure this form of government picking winners and losers is relegated to the ashbin of history.”

Background:

According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll, 62% of Americans said they thought the U.S. economic system mainly benefits those in power versus only 34% who said it mainly benefits all people. Belief that the economy is rigged is a longtime, widespread perception.
