Thank you all! Now for Phase Two.

September 16, 2010

The primary season is over, and Republicans have done me the immense honor of electing me their nominee for U.S. Congress by a 40-point margin! I will officially be on the Republican, Conservative, and Independence Party ballot lines in November, and with your continued support, I will bring the same strength of purpose and clarity of message to John Hall this fall!

(Click the following links to see countywide results for Putnam, Dutchess, Orange, Westchester, and Rockland.)

Now comes the really hard work.  We have to get our message out — not just to Republicans, but to everyone in the 19th District — about reviving the American economy through shrinking the size and scope of the federal government and getting Congress and the White House off the backs of American workers and employers. We know how that’s going to happen. For starters:

  • Cut taxes on individuals (to stimulate commerce) and businesses (to spur job creation).
  • Slash federal spending, starting with suspending the various failed “stimulus” packages and refusing any more bailouts.
  • Repeal/replace/defund the unconstitutional federal takeover of health care.

If we can return to a government that the Founders, in their wisdom, envisioned for us, we can return to a government that will allow our economy to thrive again, and our people to live in liberty.

I cannot thank you enough for your unfailing energy, enthusiasm, and faith this past year on the trail. Now we’ve got a scant seven weeks to build this momentum to an intensity that even Rep. Hall can’t ignore.  Our work is cut out for us; if we can all hold together through November, I’m ready to be your next Congresswoman!

Onward to victory, and once again: thank you!

Wrong direction, Mr. President!

September 10, 2010

 
“Remain calm!  All is well!”

When Chip Diller was famously trampled by the mob at the parade in the movie Animal House, he was yelling desperately in hopes of saving a Homecoming parade.  And that was funny.  But when the people supporting our Administration and Congress’s failed fiscal policy continually flail about in denial very much like Chip, as we’ve discussed on my Facebook page, it’s not funny anymore.

Bad medicine

August 20, 2010

 
In December, 1799, President George Washington contracted a severe throat infection.  His doctors–distinguished experts all–treated him with calomel, to induce vomiting, and bloodletting.  When their patient’s condition deteriorated, they treated even more vigorously, giving more calomel and taking more blood in the hopes that this time they’d succeed.

George Washington died of dehydration, blood loss, and choking from the uncontrolled infection.  His very well-meaning physicians had actually hastened his death.

For another 75 years and beyond

Statement by Nan Hayworth on the 75th Anniversary of Social Security

Social Security represents the aspiration within the American character to do right by our neighbors and our fellow citizens.  When Social Security was signed into law 75 years ago, our government was prepared to finance the program responsibly.  Much has changed during the intervening decades to create an ever greater role for Social Security, and that in turn demands that we anticipate future needs so that we can continue this program that is critically important for tens of millions of Americans.

Want to help, Mr. President? Back off!

August 12, 2010

 
Back in June we blogged about the Business Roundtable’s withering assessment of President Obama’s approach toward American businesses.  Things haven’t improved.
 
To the contrary:  resistance to the President’s economic agenda has been spreading throughout the business community, affecting even groups and leaders who supported both Candidate and President Obama.  Runaway “stimulus” spending with no discernible results, a new health care bureaucracy that’s already adding to costs, and credit that’s harder to come by now due to financial “reform” have finally taken a toll on employers’ faith in the President.  Now that he needs their support to buck up his economic cred ahead of the midterms, they’re balking.

Young Guns; new digs!

Nan addresses the crowd

On the same day that the Hayworth campaign held an open house to celebrate the grand opening of our new Carmel headquarters, the NRCC announced that Nan and the campaign have been upgraded to full “Young Guns” status in their program of the same name, marking ours as one of the top-tier Republican challenger races in the entire country and among the most promising prospects nationwide to flip a Democrat-held House seat to the GOP!
